CD/Jewel Case weight??

15 posts in this topic

Does anybody happen to know the answer to the following 4 items? I'm trying to calculate weight for my upcoming move.

1. Single CD in standard jewel case

2. 2 CD set, standard "flip" jewel case

3. Single CD in Slim-line jewel case

4. Single LP

Thanks!

This will vary widely depending on the booklet - some have only four pages, some are quite thick. You don't happen to have a letter-balance? Or anybody else here?

Why not weigh 10 on a kitchen scale and take an average? It means standing up and leaving your computer though... ;)

I don't own a scale. Just a ballpark will do.

I happen to have a box standing here (next to my computer ;) ) with 70 LPs in it. It weighs 20 kilos.

I had to go into the other room where I have a box with 64 standard jewel case single CDs, it weighs about 6 kilos, so that's about 100 grams per unit.

Next to it is a box with 80 slimcase single CDs, it weighs about 4 kilos, so that's about 50 grams per unit.

These near scientific measurements were made using our lying bathroom scales.

Take one of each, go to your local post office, and ask them to weigh each one. You'll have the weight to the closest tenth of an ounce, if you need to be that precise.

you don't want to weigh ONE of each as you want to know the mean or median weight of all your pre- and post- and during-oil crisis vinyl pressings and your varying thickness CD booklets. Also, older jewelcases are about double the weight of more recent ones. What about digipacs? Maybe David Ayers can get up from his chair and place some on his kitchen scales, while MikeWeil goes looking for his bathroom scales, wherever he hid those...

BTW, one CD cum jewelcase really does weigh about 100 grams, give or take 10 grams and a CD cum slimcase really does weigh about 50 grams. A single LP on average really does weigh 200-300 grams, depending on vinyl thickness and cardboard stock.

I didn't make that shite up!

Sorry man...it's the whole metric thing...I'm a math phobe. So how many grams = 1 pound? I don't know any coke dealers. :g

Not a bad idea! God...this is probably like the 35th time I've moved in my life...once I get down there, I think I'm going on a nice long bender. :crazy:

Thanks to Mr. Gone for the link, much appreciated!
