Weak value (WV) protocols may lead to extreme expectation values that are larger than the corresponding orthodox expectation values. Recent works have proposed to implement this concept in nano-scale electronic systems. Here we address the issue of how one calibrates the setup in question, maximizes the measurement's sensitivity, and extracts distinctly large WVs. Our concrete setup consists of two Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZIs): the "system" and the "detector". Such setups have already been implemented in experiment.
