Was wondering what the weight is of a standard vhs video cassette tape on its own or in a cardboard case?

My scales do not currenlty work and I need to figure out the weight of 4 vhs tapes for a price quotation international shipment. Have tried searching google and could not find anything so thort i'd ask here

Sorry but 5.5 oz for all 4 or each?I presume it is each but im not sure that would equate to 22 oz which is under 2 lb which costs $21.10 for USA to Uk, I am from UK and recieve vhs from USA and need to pay for postage.Ouch thats quite expensive!But if it is 5.5 oz for all that it will be alot cheaper. I got my price quote from usps airmail postage rate..I have looked on ebay and have seen people selling 4 vhs tapes on ebay with alot cheaper postage around $10 mark..am I using best postal service?please can you respond..thanks in advance

yes 5.5oz each, so approx 22oz total...they can send the package "book rate" which'll be cheaper, but is a bit slower
