    Sending you a PM. Don't want to hijack the thread.

    Please let us know about your experience with the scale, and which model did you get, if it really works out for you I will sell my fieldpiece and get one too.

    Hi, Anthony.

    I didn't see this thread until today. I am the designer and manufacturer of the BluVac and the DS-220R scale. Thank you for your purchase.

    I hope you like it. If you have any questions or problems, you can call me directly at my office. The number is on my website at AccuTools.com.

    I just had the same problem today. Won't sync and I have used it about the same amount of times( 6 months old). Best part is, no over the counter exchange! I am going to get a fish scale.
    I STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!

    Fieldpiece does do over counter exchanges. They just have to be approved by Fieldpiece. All you have to do is get your local distributor to call us at 714 634 1844 and we'll take it from there. Thanks!

    yeah i got frustrated the first time it happened but on the second time i gave up i bought the ds-220R by accutools. i recieved it yesterday in the mail seems pretty good. i comes in a thin zip up case so i then stuck it into my fieldpiece case that has more padding for extra protection. im ready to use it.

    The zip case was specifically designed to throw over your shoulder so you can carry your other tools up the ladder at the same time. The scale needs no additional protection. I have been known to throw them across a room to demonstrate the durability. And, if you *ever* have problems with it, you can call me directly and I will make it right. I don't need corporate approval.

    BTW, someone above mentioned the TIF9010a. FYI, I designed that, too (but *not* the 9010!!!!!), back around 1998 or 1999.

    Yes, that came across quite a bit more snarky than I intended. My apologies to Russell.

    I couldn't survive without a chainfall and a meat hook scale! I think my infinicon stops at 220 but it's decently accurate.

    What scale do yall recommend from personal experience? i seen there is one affiliated with the bluevac gage i like the idea of stopping the refrigerant flow once charge is complete. i wont buy another wireless scale again
    I can't even tell you what brand digital scale, I think that it is a TIF or CPS. Its worked fine for the last 12 years or so, just have to replace the battery occasionally. I've used other brands like Yellow Jacket and Inficon? without any problems. I have the TIF/CPS and also a regular analog refrigerant scale for the #125/#200 tanks when I'm charging/recovering.
