4.0 out of 5 stars it works, but fragile, November 12, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Portable Luggage Scale (Office Product)
The limitations on checked in luggage overseas makes this scale really valuable. It saves you in paying the overweight charges. We used it to push the limits on our luggage by 2 or 3 pounds. Most of the time no one will charge you for that slight difference, as we were carrying fishing reels which were quite heavy. The item is very fragile and needs to be wrapped in clothing before tossing into your luggage. Also the batteries fall out, so first thing is to insert the battery and place a piece of scotch tape off the battery cover. Once that was done, it was great, converted to kg's and lb's with a push of a button, so you didn't have to calculate it by hand. Or guess the weight as you are schlepping your suitcase to the baggage check in scale. I hate it when one suit case is off by 2 lbs. and you have to move items from one suitcase to the other at the airport to prevent paying for the baggage overcharge. But this prevented it. When you return home, remember to take out the battery, so it doesn't leak and is available for you next trip.
