This scale is great looking and fairly accurate, but, as other reviewers have noted, the manufacturer has no intention of letting you replace the battery which has a typical lifespan of a 3 to 5 years depending on usage.
Herein, are cheap digital scales accurate?
In general, digital bathroom scales are more accurate than mechanical ones. But for the most accurate reading, any bathroom scale must be set up correctly and used consistently.
Furthermore, does thinner scale have batteries?

How do I change the battery in my thinner scale?
Weigh two objects together.
- Place one object on the scale. Note the weight. Take it off and let the scale even back out. …
- If it matches, the scale is accurate. If it doesn’t, try it again and see if it is off by the same number. If it is, it might be that your scale is always off by that amount.
Acrylic “thinners” usually contain water, alcohol, ammonia. A huge waste of money to not do much of anything. I could see using regular ole rubbing alcohol or soap and water to clean a model.

Perfect performance and durability scores plus an easy-to-read screen helped tip the scales in its favor. And its sleek, clean look makes it a low-profile addition to any decor. Some features include a tempered safety glass platform and a preinstalled long-life lithium battery.
The Etekcity EB9380H is one of the most accurate and precise digital bathroom scales we’ve tested. Many inexpensive bathroom scales respond reliably only to a weight change on the order of half a pound, or, as we found through our testing, will even pull your weight readings from memory without trying to measure you.
