When I see lbs expressed with a decimal part, except for ".5," which I know means half a pound or 8 ounces, I don't know how many ounces the decimal represents. It would be more helpful if I know how many ounces I'm dealing with.
But I found an easy way to convert the decimal to ounces: Just multiply the decimal by 16 (as in 16 ounces to a pound) to get the ounces. Thus, since the Pure Plug 2.0 weighs 1.3 lbs, when you multiply .3 by 16 you get 4.8. That means the Pure Plug 2.0 weighs 1 lb and 4.8 or about 5 ounces.
Isn't that more meaningful than "1.3 lbs"?
