Found these at my local Poundland - Travel Luggage Weighing Scales for a pound

Looks very similar to the one in the pic, but the label says Travel solution. There is a measuring tape as well at the bottom.

Max Weight = 50lb

Bought one of these and find it impossible to use.

Bought one of these last year and it was a godsend - especially for the return journey where you don't have bathroom scales etc to hand - our were bang on in weight so could have been just a duff one.

this is quite good i guess for those who are travelling short haul flights and luggage weight is restricted.

i use my nintendo wii fit board to weigh my suitcase.

That's a good idea, but it might be a little bit too much to carry on the return trip (wii plus the board)...£1 is good, I would suggest to test it and if it's dodgy get it replaced.

The return flight is what it's all about - especially from a Florida trip, remember to weigh the scales too :p

Check it against a known reference first (bathroom scales), then you'll know how to read it / calibrate it for the return journey! To rely completely on a £1 measuring instrument in the first place seems rather unwise.

Paid around £3 for one of these at Wilco last year. Great price - Hot!

To type the numeral "5" dont press shift as that results in a % sign

Got one of these for my trip to Las Vegas, just the job to avoid excess baggage charges from the Airlines,
Accurate enough for the job as long as you use some common sense :-)
#11
If your scales go beyond the say 150kg, just step onto the scales with the baggage in hand. Then minus your body weight from the result.

i used one of these on my recent honeymoon to the states and it was perfect!

my max weight was 50lb and coming back mine weighed 49.5lb and my wifes was 50lb bang on.
#13
Paid £8 for these from Betterware 2 years ago after hunting several shops beforehand and not finding them. However in the last year they have appeared in numerous stores for much less, £1 is great price though.

I found them to be bang on with weight and let you take many more shoes than you would normally for fear of going over limit .....always a bonus for us girls :thumbsup:
#14
will have to get me one of these, cheaper than extra kilos with ryan air lol
#15
recommended, weigh before you leave on the return trip as well as you can, then if you have a finniky airline you know which luggage to then try & utilise, we got caught this way recently with my snowboard bag, which gets filled with kid stuff, ..was a godsend knowing that i could throw stuff in another ok , rather than guessing & scrabbling around at the airport...

Luggage weight is not combined luggage weight & it's only getting stricter folks!
#16
buy a digital one from amazon for £9 !!! ha ha ha i put this on last week a total bargain and totally accurate
#17
I use these for fishing all the time, to see if I've beaten my personal best ;)

Which makes them multi-purpose scales! Even better, and for such a low price. I wonder if they'll break straight away, though... It is Poundland :roll:
#18
I find this doesn't respond much to low weights, a kilo or so doesn't move the needle at all so probably useless for fishing or any precision application.
#19
i bought some of these and the only thing i found to be wrong with them is the hook isn't that long so its a bit of a task to hang the suitcase on so all i did was tie a carrier bag to the handle of the suitcase and it worked fine :)

the scales in the airport said my suitcase was the weight the scale had said :)

Don't do this; your bathroom scales are not a known reference. Weighing instruments used in airports should be verified suitable for trade use, and will be a maximum of 3 scale divisions out at capacity. Your bathroom scales have no accuracy verified at any point in manufacture, and simple things like not being at zero, or weighing on a carpet (like the wii-fit board?) will affect them even more. I've seen bathroom scales more than 100 divisions out, and have rarely see one close enough to use as a reference.
Use these suspended weighers by all means as a very rough guide, err on the side of caution, but don't be suprised or upset at the check-in if your bags are rejected or you are charged.

If you want accuracy you are going to have to pay for it. Equally anglers thinking of buying these will be upset when their "record breaking" catch isn't accepted due to the equipment used to weigh.

Fab idea!:thumbsup:
#23
slighty odd reason but Im thinking of buying this to go weigh bicycles, because i'm shopping around and some small independent store dont have all the spec and the big busy store cant care less, so i'm gonna connect one of these babies to weight it myself lol
#24
Saw these yesterday. They look like the cheapest crap possible. As expected from poundland.

Don't know if it's accurate and can be used more than once or not...

Take a chill pill !!!

Crap bit of kit but for a quid there's just no reason to complain. Heat added, hot deal!
#29
I just turn up at the airport and find a check in desk that is not being used and use their scales.
#30
An excellent price but I prefer the Balanza ones although they are far more expensive. As those are digital, once they 'beep' you can put the case down and read it off.

And if you are over????????????????
#32
Took one of these away with so I could bring back loads of booze, but I was overweight at check in as I forgot to add weight of scales to my bag when I packed them so I chucked them in the bin!!

Not really
Only kidding
#33
Got one at the w/end. I must say it is very cheaply made and I don't think I would trust it, but for a quid it's worth a go. The tape measure came out and got stuck! Wouldn't go in and wouldn't come out, my bf finally got it back in, so I have been warned not to touch it again. I tried to weigh a carrier bag with some stuff in it and it wouldn't work, but weighed my suntan lotions and it worked. I will check my case on scales before I leave and then on this device to see how accurate it is. If you are really wanting it to be 100% accurate, I would buy a more expensive one.
