Ive been using this for a year.
-- extremely portable
-- love the fact that you don't have to strain and bend and twist to look at the reading, just lift the weight and keep it up for a few seconds till the light turns on and then let the bag go... the device keeps the weight displayed till then next reading.
-- it is so accurate that I take my bags upto 49.2-49.5 pounds and never once have exceeded the weight on the scales at the airports.
-- i have gifted this item to several friends who travel a lot.

I'm work for the State of California, and do a lot of travling between our sites. I purchased three units, two for personal suitcases, and one for office use to weigh boxed items being shipped between our 11 California sites. I compared what the micro scale showed for luggage weight against the airport luggage scales and found all three units I purchased provide weight values within 1/2 lb of the airport scales (multiple airports). It's well built, easy to use, light weight but sturdy, and does not take up much luggage space. If you do purchase a scale, suggest taking the time to check it's readings against airport luggage scale to verify accuracy.

I've read the reviews of people who say the scale won't produce repeatable results. I just repeated the weighing of an empty suitcase 8 times and every time I got 11.6 pounds. I found that results are not that repeatable unless you use the following procedure: (1) switch on the scale; (2) press the left button with the hook hanging free; (3) move the scale so that the hook is under the suitcase top handle; (4) lift up very gradually until the suitcase is off the floor; (5) wait until the number settles out; (6) note the reading; (7) SWITCH THE SCALE BACK OFF and repeat. If you don't follow this procedure, measurements may vary by plus or minus about 0.3 pounds around a mean value. The whole procedure takes under 15 seconds if you're really slow.

Now let's be real here. Repeatability doesn't prove accuracy. A repeatable scale may be repeatably wrong.

I bought this scale to ensure that my bags are under the airlines' 50 pound weight limit. I've noted that airlines will normally let a bag through if it is within two pounds of 50, so the scale doesn't have to be all that accurate. In addition, I'd bet the airlines' scales aren't good to better than half a pound, especially considering the beating they take. My rule of thumb is to stay at or below a reading of 49.2 pounds, just to be safe. So far, I've run 14 bags through that were just below 50 pounds and I've had no problems.

I couldn't live without this thing now. When my family travels they like to live on the edge of overweight. And then they like to buy stuff and bring it home. I often end up having them switch the high-density items to carry-ons. We end up switching things around multiple times to get all checked bags under 50. Before we got this scale, we actually had to switch items on the floor of the airport when we were over the limit. We were relying on a bathroom scale. Now we've solved the problem. It simply wouldn't be possible without this scale. If you're trying to stay under the airline 50-pound limit, I highly recommend this product.

While this luggage scale is compact and lightweight which makes it perfect for travel, it's a little fluky. Once or twice it's just shut off (even though I was no where near the max weight). Other than that it gets the job done. I would recommend adding a pound or two to what the scale says as a precaution because when I lifted my suitcase to weigh it the case tipped forward (because of the scale design) and altered the reading slightly.

Great for traveling. Easy to use and small enough to take when on the move. Came in handy for weighing backpacks for a trip into the wilderness areas. Will purchase more for Christmas stockings.

I rate this at four stars. It's lightweight itself and weighs bags quickly and accurately. It will do kilos or pounds and the display locks when it gets a solid reading. Sometimes it's hard to lift and hold steady a 50 pound bag, so the auto lock is very useful,

Inexpensive, lightweight and accurate. A bargain I think,

Just used this luggage scale while on a trip and it worked great. The hook makes it easy to share this with another person while packing under a time crunch. We had a bunch of gifts for friends so of course our luggage was now way over the 50 pound weight limit. This scale helped save us from the embarrassing dance of frantically swapping items around on the floor in front of the ticket counter with a whole line of other travelers staring at us! Am now buying one for myself and friends.

Pros: Small and lightweight.

Cons: The scale appears to be inaccurate of up to 2 pounds.

Weighed my suitcase multiple times and on the first leg of the trip the scale stated the weight was around 49 pounds while the airline scale indicated it was 51 pounds. On the return flight (different airline) the scale indicated my bag was at 48.2 pounds and the airline scale indicated it was at 50.5 pounds. Not sure if I am doing something wrong but it seems self explanitory.

Had two people weigh my bag with the same unit and was two pound from the limit before we checked in at the airport. The airport scales (both I tried) said my bag was 2 pounds heavier than the Travelon scale had read. Good thing I kept it below the limit or I would have been paying extra to take that bag with. It is nice how small it is though, I'm going to keep it just remembering it's off by a few pounds is ok with me.
