Well, you won't really need shades but, you won't have a problem reading your weights thanks to the green backlight on the My Weigh iBalance 5500.
If you're not up for a brain numbing count-a-thon, you can always put the i5500 to work. The i5500 is great at counting and will let you know just how many pieces you have in no time. Just weigh a sample amount, push a few buttons then load this precision scale up with all your parts and pieces.
If you're in the middle of a weighing tournament or you just don't want your scale to turn off ever, you're in luck. The MyWeigh i5500 has a programmable auto-off that will let you choose when and how this bad boy turns off. You can tell this precision scale to stay on forever, at least until the batteries die or you decide to turn it off yourself, or to turn off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity.
Sometimes, having unwanted weight on your scale is just plain unavoidable. Don't worry your pretty little head. The i5500 has a tare feature that will remove weight from your readings with, literally, a push of a button. Just put your weighing tray, bowl, scoop or whatever on the scale and press the "Z" key. Now the scale is set back to zero and you can add the goodies you really want to weigh.
If your iBalance needs a little tune-up, don't worry. You can calibrate this compact scale all by yourself. It's so easy, all you need to get your i5500 back in tip-top-weighing shape is a 5000 gram calibration weight and, of course, the iBalance user manual.
The i5500 has a built in liquid level indicator and adjustable feet to help you get it nice and level before you start weighing. Level scale = accurate weight readings.
