January 26, 2011

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — It may be a high-tech world, but sometimes it’s low tech that gets the job done. The MP4000 Personal Post Office® portable scale has been around since the turn of the last century. It’s small, simple, and accurate – and it doesn’t use electricity, ink or paper. But it’s still being made and in wide use today because it works really well. And at $10.95, you can’t beat the price.

The little scale started life as a quick, easy and portable device to weigh mail to determine postage. The handy little scale could be carried in your pocket or kept in a desk drawer and was amazingly accurate. In fact, the little scale has been tested and approved by the US Postal Service for accuracy.

Fast-forward to 2011 and the MP4000 portable scale has found new purpose for all sorts of weighing needs. It turns out these convenient little scales are very popular with home brewers for accurately weighing out ingredients. Biologists and naturalists use the little scales in the field. The scale’s simplicity makes it extremely rugged and durable in extreme conditions. The MP4000 has seen service for police use, arts and crafts, cooking, and just about anywhere a fast, easy, portable way to weigh something is needed.

The scale has even been used to teach the physics principle on which it is based.

To be sure, the MP4000 is still used to weigh a lot of mail, and keeping with modern times it even has a web site, http://www.personalpostoffice.com.
