Do you love to travel? Have you ever been burned by overweight luggage fees? If your bags are even a pound over the limit, you can be down hundreds of dollars. What’s the solution? A pocket-sized luggage scale to make sure you are never overweight. We researched and reviewed some of the best luggage scales available on the market, looking for the best and brightest (and most portable!). While looking around, we came up with a short list of some of the most important things we looked for while shopping. Check out each icon to see what they are.
Weight Capacity - How much weight can it handle? To properly handle luggage, most have a weight capacity of about 100 lbs. We measure this stat in pounds.
Backlit Display - Backlighting is a light that illuminates everything behind the numbers on the screen. This makes the screen easier to read. We’ll note if the scale has one.
Battery - Does the luggage scale come with a battery? Is it rechargeable or single use? Some will also need batteries, and we’ll write that out in the description.
Carry Pouch - Does your new luggage scale have a carrying case or pouch, or is it designed to slip right into your purse, pocket, or luggage?
Dimensions - How big is the device? Whether you’re looking for something tiny or something big, we’ll write out the dimensions for you here, in inches.
Warranty - How long is your new device covered for? Warranties usually cover defects in the original construction. We’ll measure this in years.
We’ve covered all of the stats that you’ll want to know while shopping for the best digital luggage scale, so now it’s time for those reviews!
