A must-have, money-saving purchase for any traveller!
on 12 March 2016
I've owned this scale for several months now and it's really paid for itself! If you travel by air a lot like I do, I'm sure you're just as annoyed at ridiculous overweight baggage charges as I am. I've been that person anxiously shoving underwear and shoes between bags at the check-in desk as my departure time edges closer - trust me, it's never a position you'll want to be in!
My favourite part about this scale is the smart design - the shape makes it so easy to lift even the heaviest bags with both hands. The strap seems very strong and durable, looping around the handles of your luggage and doesn't budge or come loose at all whilst picking it up. It's the most lightweight scale I've owned and the slim shape means it's perfect for stashing in any of your bags and won't weigh it down. The digital display seems to be very accurate, maybe 100g or so difference each way especially if your luggage is heavy, so best to be cautious and round up a couple of hundred grams if you're very close to your limit! It also comes with batteries that have lasted the last few months and are still performing perfectly.
I'd absolutely recommend this scale to any travellers - if it helps you avoid just one baggage fee then it's more than paid for itself! It's so much better than the cheaper manual scales on the high street, which are never anywhere near as accurate in my experience (not to mention heavier and bulkier). No more overweight luggage panics - now I can worry more about choosing the perfect souvenirs to take home rather than any nasty surprise penalty fees at the airport!
