Balanzza Digital Luggage Scales
I decided that I needed to invest in some luggage scales a few years ago when I went across to the States to work. The thought of getting to the check-in desk and my bag being heavier than what was allowed haunted me. I have been behind others in the queue before who have had to try to stuff clothes into their hand luggage or put on additional layers in order to lighten their suitcase. I have always dreaded this happening to me and so I decided to travel prepared and know the weight of my suitcase so that I could approach the check-in desk more confidently.
When I started looking for some luggage scales, I was after some that were accurate, easy to use and light so that I could pop them in my suitcase and take them on my travels with me. A friend recommended getting some digital scales, as they are much more reliable and easy to operate.
I first came across Balanzza Scales on amazon.co.uk. I did some brief research into which luggage scales were the best and all the positive reviews that I could find led me to these scales. Balanzza are a company which specialise in luggage scales and are in fact the number one best sellers of such devices! Their aim is to make travelling carefree and to prevent you being caught out by excessive airline luggage fees!
I settled on the Ergo Digital Luggage Scale, as it was exactly what I needed. I paid about £15 for the scale and I bought them from amazon.co.uk. The scales RRP is £19.99 so I managed to save a few pounds and I got free delivery too! At first I thought that this was quite a high price to pay but the scale is such great quality that it is definitely worthwhile investing in.
The scale is a great size, compact and light. It weighs just 200g and is literally one handle, which has useful finger grooves for extra grip. There is a small screen on the top of the scale and a few buttons to operate it. There is also a strap on the side of the scale which you use to attach to your luggage in order to measure its weight. The screen is the ideal size so that the measurements are easy to read and the strap is easy to attach. I really like the design of the scale and its simplicity makes it even more fantastic. The scale operates on two AAA batteries that come included.
Using the scale could not be simpler. Simply attach the strap onto the luggage in question, secure the clasp, hit the on button and wait for the screen to display zero, lift the luggage, wait for a beep, set the luggage down and then read your results! There is a reset button so that you can double-check or add to/take-away from your luggage and try again. The scale will measure in both lb and kg and it is easy to change the settings by pressing the button next to power. It will lift up to 44kg or 100lbs.
The scale is useful because of how easy it is to use and the peace of mind that it gives before you go on your holidays. Nobody likes paying excessive luggage charges, so travel prepared with a device like this.
I can safely say that I would no longer fly without my Balanzza Scale! They have always been consistently reliable and have never let me down. The measurements that this scale has given me have always been spot on!
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who loves to travel and is conscious about weighing his or her luggage beforehand. They are a fantastic help and have probably saved me hundreds of pounds in luggage fees over the few years I have had them!
Thank you for reading : )
