Luggage scales are a useful piece of kit to have at home to avoid issues with paying excess baggage fees. Most of the airlines set different weight allowances so it can be difficult to get it right for the frequent travellers. They are easy to use and can include a variety of features to match the specific needs.

Let’s take a look at the key features worth having on the luggage scales:

Weight capacity

Weight capacity is a major feature to consider. This needs to easily reach the maximum limits set by the different airlines. Many of the luggage scales will accept a load up to about 110 pounds, which is more than enough. Additionally, the accuracy can vary with the different units. Most have an accuracy leeway of about by 0.1 pounds. This is likely to give enough accuracy for most unless very close to the airlines permitted limit.

Screen lock

The weight lock is a user-friendly feature that will ensure the total weight of the luggage is kept on the display screen for a certain period of time. This makes it a lot easier for a single person to use the scales without having to hold the luggage and read the display at the same time.

Type of Display

The weight can be displayed using analogue or LCD. The LCD units are easier to read if the screen is backlit. Many of the low-cost models are particularly difficult to read in bright light conditions. Also, the LCD units will use more battery life. The alternative option is those built with a traditional clock dial. They do not rely on extra battery power and are still very easy to read.

Compact size

The luggage scales are typically compact in size which means they can be taken on any journey. This will give the option to weigh the luggage again before the return leg of the journey to avoid going over the permitted limited after buying souvenirs for friends or family on the travels.

Battery indicator

Many of the feature rich units have a battery indicator to give a quick reminder of the available charge left in the battery. This is great for those that travel often and need to make sure it is always ready to use.

Automatic shut down

A useful feature to save battery life is automatic shut down. This is often seen on the luggage scales with an LCD display. Most units will switch off after 30 to 60 seconds of no activity.
