    This luggage scale works well and you’ll never need to replace batteries (which seemed to be the most common complaint regarding electronic luggage scales)

    TL;DR: I bought this luggage scale because I trust Samsonite. This doesn’t work at all. If my luggage weights over 20lbs, it get stuck to 20lbs.

    First, I was disappointed by the fact that it needed calibration. How am I supposed to calibrate that while on holiday? I have no other scale or anything that could help me with that. As a last resort, I decided that, if the calibration really changes the weight, I would use a bucket of water (so much for ecology: 5 liters of water wasted for calibrating a scale).

    Then, I was reassured: the calibration doesn’t matter whatsoever, it simply doesn’t work. I packed my luggage and I estimated the weight around 40lbs. When I used the luggage scale, it showed 20lbs. I tried to remove stuff in my luggage to see if it was a problem of proportion (maybe it was showing only half of the real weight). It kept showing 20 lbs.

    In the end, don’t buy this crap. It’s a waste of money.

    I suppose that is better than weighing low, July 7, 2014

    We bought this before a recent trip. When it told me that I was slightly over the weight allowance, I started pulling things out not only to get under the allowance, but also that I’d be able to make purchases. A lot of things. Imagine my surprise when I got to the airport and found that it had weighed about 10 pounds high. The same thing happened with my husband’s suitcase.

    I suppose that is better than weighing low, but being off 20% is not much better than picking up the suitcase and saying, “This feels heavy.”

    Also it was very hard to read. The print is red on a black backgrounds, so there is little contrast. I am guessing that the target audience for this product is an older crowd and our eyes need to have things easier to read, not harder.
