How do I Remove the Batteries From Salter Food Scales?

When the batteries on your Salter food scale run low, the screen will display a "LOW BATTERY" message. To keep your Salter food scale running smoothly, replace all of the batteries every time the batteries are low. If you will not be using the scale for an extended period, remove the batteries from the compartment and store them elsewhere. This will prevent corrosion from developing inside the battery compartment.

Tips and warnings
