There's nothing worse than getting to the airport and being told that the suitcase it took you hours to squeeze shut is just two lbs too heavy, and you have the choice to either leave something behind or pay a surcharge.
Of course, you always have the option to use your bathroom scale to weigh your luggage; it's cumbersome, and unless you have one of those fancy scales with a remote screen, by the time the suitcase is on the scale you can't see the dial. Besides, you're still left with the problem of finding a scale at your destination to get ready for the flight back.
Enter the tiny, 5oz Taylor #8120 Digital Luggage Scale. It's basically a handle with a strap and a small LCD readout. Attach the strap to your suitcase handle, press the button and wait for the readout to display 00; then, pick up the handle and lift the suitcase with it, wait for the beep... and read the weight of the suitcase on the display (it can be configured to show lbs or kgs)
It's so small that you can very easily find space for it in the suitcase you just weighted, your carry-on bag, or even a pocket if necessary.
The scale is powered by a standard user-replaceable CR2032 button lithium battery that should last many years.
A very inexpensive price to pay for convenience and peace of mind. Highly recommended.
+ Great price for a luggage scale
+ Digital read-out
+ Can display weight in pounds or kilograms
+ Nice simple design that is small enough to take to the airport with you
- Contruction seems to be of low durability
- Not well designed for use with heavier bags
- Not designed for two-handed use
This unit comes in a small cardboard box. It says it's rated for 88 lbs. I typically travel with two pieces of luggage that are around 50 lbs and I try not to go over that per bag. In any event, the unit itself feels like it's not very durable and over time may not work as well as standard scales I have used that don't have the digital read-out.
The unit comes with a small battery pre-installed. You just have to remove the plastic tab that keeps the battery from draining before use. Once you do that, you attach the strap to your luggage and you lift with one hand. The small LED screen will give you a readout. If you need more than one read-out you have to press the button in the handle to reset the unit.
The instructions are minimal but make one limitation of this scale clear. If you try to lift luggage with both hands, this unit will not give you an accurate reading.Read more ›
These days, keeping the weight of each luggage piece under 50 lbs will save you tons of money, not to mention the time and frustration at the airport if you find yourself having to repack your bags and/or cram heavy items in your carry on if you go over.
Contrary to what one reviewer wrote, the scale may not be designed for two hands, but you can use it very easily with two hands. I just loop 3 fingers from each hand through the handle and pull straight up. In fact, I found the scale to be slightly more accurate if I used two hands. I placed a small suitcase on a very accurate postal scale, and it weighed 34 lbs, 0.2 oz. When I used the Taylor scale with one hand, per its directions, it weighed 33.8 lbs. When I pulled up using two hands, the Taylor scale read 34.0 lbs. I suspect that using two hands allows one to more easily lift the suitcase and does not cause as much sway, which could lead to some inaccuracy.
I will agree that its plastic construction does not instill a lot of confidence in its durability and sturdiness, but if it was made of metal, it would certainly weigh more than its mere 5.2 ounces! This small amount of weight, along with its tiny footprint of only 5.75" x 3" x 1.25", will allow you to take it with you on your trip in case you're worried about the weight of your souvenir purchases.
One other PRO - the unit will shut automatically shut off after about a minute, conserving battery life.
And one CON - the scale's readings can vary from one minute to the next by about 4-8 oz, and it *always* reads lower than the actual weight of the suitcase (as weighed on my postal scale). I will always add a pound to the scale's reported weight, as a safety margin, because the airlines will usually not offer you any leeway.
