Travel has changed drastically in the last ten years. One of the more recent changes are that airlines are charging you for taking bags on the plane. They’ve also lowered the maximum weight for each bag. When you are leaving home, you can always weigh your bags on a scale at home. Things are much more difficult when you are on the road and trying to decide if you can get more souvenirs without going over the weight limit.
That’s where the Balanzza Digital Luggage Scale can save the day. It weighs about a pound and fits nicely into your carry on bag. When you need to weigh your checked bag, simply attach the bag to the scale’s strap and lift. Within a couple of seconds the scale will tell you the weight of the bag up to 100 pounds (44 kg). I’ve carried an older model of the scale in my bag for many years now and it has been a lifesaver. If it saves you just once from going over the weight limit, it will easily pay for itself.
