Portable balances can usually be powered with an adapter or batteries. They are generally a less sensitive balance that is designed to handle the roughness of being moved from place to place. A portable balance is ideal for applications that require the scale to be used in multiple locations. This is common for classrooms, industrial labs, and general laboratories.
