confusing but works,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Air Weigh LS-300 Portable Digital Luggage Scale (Automotive)
In today's age of luggage fees, everyone needs to travel with a luggage scale.
This one is not tiny, but reasonably small and comfortable to lift with, and extremely light. The buttons are confusing at first, but read the instructions, as the features (ie locking on the max weight) are handy.
We had two 50.0 pound bags coming back from our last trip - the rest in backpacks. Money or pain of opening your suitcase at the airport avoided.

Can you explain what lock, unlock, and peak mode are? Thanks!

Amazon Customer says:
Unlocked mode simply shows a read out of the weight at that moment. As soon as you put your bag down, it will go back to zero. Peak mode (locked) will keep the display reading the max weight reached, so you can lift your bag, put it down, then take a look at the weight.
The peak mode can be misleading, though, since extra weight is generated when you lift the bag. So we either read it while in unlocked mode, or click it into peak mode after its lifted, or lift the bag very slowly.
Hope that helps.

@ Rudy: Probably a bit late, but the Amazon information says "shipping weight: 1 pound". I would assume the scale isn't much less than that after you exclude the box and packing materials.
