I recently purchased a digital scale from eBay.
According to the listing it can weigh in the following units:
Multiple Weighting Units: g, oz, tl, ct.
Screenshot of that page:
Now I know that "g" is grams, "oz" is ounces, and "ct" is carats (and the figures displayed agree with that) however what is "tl"?
If I measure a 10g reference weight it shows as 0.853 tl, thus 1g is 0.0853 tl. Allowing for slight measurement errors (the last significant figure changes a bit with different measurements) I can't find any unit of weight that "tl" could correspond to.
The closest in name I could find is "tael" but the conversion factor doesn't agree. (10g is 0.264555 tael).
The unit also measures in grains (gn) although that is not advertised.
The device only measure up to 200g, so I imagine that whatever "tl" is will be some sort of measurement of jewellery or similar.
So, my question is: What is tl?
