I’m pretty sure many of you travelers out there have had to deal with the rising costs of overweight baggage  And some of you are unfamiliar with the way airlines charge according to how heavy your luggage is. Most airlines have a weight limit of 50 lbs., and if you exceed that weight, you WILL incur additional fees. Depending on the weight of the bag, most airlines charge an extra $100 to $200 per bag. So what I have decided to do is give you all a breakdown on the various luggage scales that we offer that CAN and WILL help you plan ahead when packing your luggage for that next trip.

The Balanzza Mini scale is considered the smallest and lightest luggage scale available on the market. It has the same functionality as the other two scales in which you connect it to your luggage, lift, wait for the beep, and read the weight.

This scale is one of the lightest ones in its class, but it is known for giving the fastest readings. It will tell you the weight of a bag within 2-3 seconds! The scale uses a strong metal hook instead of a strap to weigh out your luggage with a capacity of 110 lbs or 50 kg.

This manual scale by Travelon is very easy to use and requires no batteries as well. All you have to do is hang your bag onto the hook and the scale will give you your weight. One neat feature about this scale is that it has an extra needle that stops at the weight of your bag and stays there so you don’t have to hold your bag up longer than needed. It helps to eliminate arm fatigue from how other scales are designed to work. One other great feature that this scale has is a built-in tape measure that extends out to 39″. So with this scale you can weigh and measure out your luggage to make sure it is within the baggage requirements. The scale has a capacity of 75 lbs. and the weight of the scale itself comes in at a little under a pound. You can purchase this light and compact scale at Luggagebase.com for only $9.95.
