Scale for weighing luggage


Airlines are becoming increasingly strict on charging high fees for over-weight luggage. Often the maximum weight for checked luggage is 50 pounds for each bag. The maximum weight for carry-on luggage is 20 pounds for each bag. Therefore it is important to know the total weight of each bag of checked luggage and carry-on bags.


I have found what I believe to be the best value in an accurate, low-cost scale:

Jennings UltraSport Series Back-Lit Digital Fishing/Hanging Scale

Model: UltraSport 30 (66 lb). The scale has high accuracy. The readability resolution is one ounce.


This scale is sold for US$26.90, from (as of June, 2007).


Size is 5 x 2.3 x 1 inch.
