With new and higher fees being added what seems to be every day in air travel, often its good to know the weight of your luggage before you get to the airport. This could save you a lot of time and maybe more importantly pain of repacking the bags in front of the check-in counter or having to leave stuff behind and also save you money on excess baggage fees.
Airline baggage weight limits can be very confusing as they differ from one airline to another (take a look at this usefull airline baggage fees chart), and when you check your bags in at the airport there's always that nagging feeling that your puffed out suitcase might be just over the limit. Portable digital (or analog) luggage scaleto the rescue.
These relatevely small devices have become an essential gadget for air travel. They can weigh your bags in kg, grams, oz, or lbs, and do so more or less accurately. With the digital scale it is even easier as someone of them beep when done measuring and display the weight in easy to read numerals.
The portable luggage scalecan then be carried in your hand luggage so that you can check your bag weight again on the way home - which is very handy if you've stocked up on souvenirs and duty free goods during your holiday.
Moreover, these gadgets can also serve doube duty at home in the kitchen, shop, for fishing and outdoor activities. Just dont try to weight self or others, most have a 50 lbs limit :)
