It’s been a while since I last posted. I wanted to mention another one of my favorite products today because it has proven to be useful and popular within my family, and it’s cheap!
The Etekcity Digital Luggage Scale provides an easy, portable solution to weighing luggage. I personally used this device to weigh my luggage for WOW Airlines and other European airlines; my parents borrow it for when they vacation, and my brother recently used it to verify he was under the weight limit for American Airlines before leaving for China (he was initially 2 pounds over the checked baggage limit. A small change saved him from a $100 overage fee!).
Accuracy appears to be quite good for such a cheap device. I used both free weights and a bathroom scale in an attempt to verify the Etekcity Digital Luggage Scale’s accuracy. The free weights measured within 1/10th of a pound each time and the bathroom scale, which I imagine is less accurate, also provided assurance that the scale was indeed correct.
Armed with the luggage scale, it is now possible to pack your bags to the brim and forget about costly overage fees!
