    Buying a new charging scale.. What is good? ADS100 died.

    My old ADS100 has a display of "0" but is not reading any weight. Prolly time for a new scale.

    Looking for recommendations. Ones that don't get squirrly in the rain and I do not need wireless...

    So; what is good out there?

    I beat the hell out of my TIF and it still works.

    Just wish they made a better case.

    This won't get squirrely in the rain and it will heat the refrigerant in low ambient conditions. Name:  charging cylinder.jpg

    I would also second what pecmsg said. I have a TIF that has seen it's fair share of abuse and still works well.

    Look on Ebay. I bought one for $63 in 2018, it works great.

    I third the tif. Specifically the 9010a I love mine. My boss has the regular 9010 I think it is and it doesn't have as many weight units.

    I need one that remembers where it was after it shuts off.

    I believe the only one that does that is the field piece, but it's wireless.

    I use the tif 9020 I think.

    Its the same as the 9010, but works for up to 200 lbs.

    A refrigerant scale should not shut off on a timer unless the battery goes dead.

    I have a Tiff I got used off eBay 8 years ago and still working just fine. Had it tested a few years ago for calibration and it was dead on.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    I've got the 9010A. Bought it maybe 5 years ago. Works great for me.

    I don't use any of my electronics in the rain.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I would recommend telling them by not giving them any money.

    Which one.....the garbage corded one or the wireless one.

    The one with the cheap telephone wire connector is junk.

    I have the wireless one. If you don't get the optional wireless display, you use an app on your phone to connect via bluetooth. I really like it. You can walk away for half an hour and come back. Reconnect your phone and it remembers exactly the correct weight.

    Also can handle a little moisture, unlike the Yellowhacket scales....had two of those die because a couple rain drops landed on them.
