You can get enough batteries for £1 at poundland to run that scales for your entire lifetime, I change my digital scale batteries once every 1-2 years and I use it every day!

How is a digital scale any better than a non digital one? It's simply preference, a digital scale is much more likely to break if I drop it or spill something all over it.

Nah even the cheap ones are fine. It's better cos non digital ones are very inaccurate, especially when you're trying to measure small values like 5 grams or bigger exact values like 60g. Plus you get a TARE option on even the cheapest models, which I can't live without even doing the most basic tasks, e.g. making a protein shake I pour the milk in to 500ml then press TARE and tip in 60g of powder. If I did that with the pictured scales who knows how much I'd end up with. Maybe 490ml and 70g. Maybe 510ml and 50g. Who knows.

Technology has moved on, not like you whip out an addiator when you need to do some accounting just cos it's not gonna break if you drop or spill something on it are ya?

Fair enough, but manual is good enough for my needs like I said it's preference, you want something really accurate with a tare option. I want something I can pull out of my cupboard once every blue moon and measure 100g of something.

In that case a digital scale would be better due to the size, that thing is pretty big compared to something the size of a dvd case. No point taking up a ton of cupboard space.
Nice of them to scale back the price
