Many years ago when I worked at the Frontier Airlines ticket counter there was a common occurrence that oftentimes seemed rather hilarious – or pathetic. Passengers would arrive at the airport with their bags literally bursting at the seams and as they heaved their luggage on to the big shiny scale the numbers would shoot over the airline’s weight limit. Sometimes the luggage weight would teeter only only a pound or two over the limit while other times the bags passed the limit by ten or twenty pounds. The passengers would frantically pull out sweaters and ski boots and try to transfer the pieces into other bags. Sometimes they would give up and pay the fee while some passengers would just carry the excess item onto the plane. In hindsight, they each could have used a Precision Voyager digital luggage scale.
I’ve mentioned before how nervous I was on my return after nearly two weeks in Alaska. My luggage was much heavier than when I arrived and it’s no surprise many people feel the same way during their return flight home.
Eat Smart recently introduced us to their new Precision Voyager Digital Luggage Scale and I have to say I’m rather impressed. Not only is the scale very portable – it will slide into any flat luggage pocket – but its two-handed Smart-Grip makes it very easy to use. I won’t be surprised if fitness gurus list this luggage scale as a extra way to get some weigh lifting in during a vacation.
The scale has two measurement modes: Pounds and Kilograms and can measure up to 110 pounds/50 kilograms. The scale includes a lithium battery and you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn it off since it’s automatically programmed to turn off after 20 seconds.
