Eaasy to operate, light, small and functional – Digital Weighting Hook Scale with Neck Strap (40kg Max / 10g Resolution) Reviews

posted by VladanM on 02/26/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Compact - considerably smaller than other units I've seen, which makes it easy to carry on a trip with you.
- Light
- Easy to use - simple and easy to understand command buttons
- Hook (instead of the usual strap or buckle) makes weighing multiple items a breeze.
- The hook can be stored into the unit so it doesn't get in the way in transport or storage.
- Tare can be set so you can weight the actual content of your luggage if you want.
- Standard AAA batteries (included)
Cons:
The battery compartment does not lock in place very firmly so it can fall off. I'm sure this is fixable, but haven't bothered because I don't use it every day.
Other:
Beats standing on a bathroom scale while holding a big suitcase any time, not to mention having to calculate the weight difference.
Bottomline:
If you fly long distance and/or more than once a year you owe yourself one of these. It will pay for itself multi-fold by helping you avoid overweight charges.
