Recommend Luggage Scales for heavy suitcases?...

Can anyone recommend luggage scales for heavy suitcases?

Ok, before anyone jumps in with anything, I need something that is lightweight and can be taken on holiday for the trip back. Many of the digital scales seem to take up to 30 seconds to stabilise, seem not to be accurate at over 15-20kg, or don't have sufficient 'hooks' to hang on suitcases.

Simply looking for a quick, accurate scale that reads out fast and will take suitcases around 30kg.

I arrived back yesterday from Antigua and we used a pair of fish scales from Poundland that were just great. They were accurate and tiny to pack also. We always use them for our holidays.

For this product you can disregard the 1, 2 and 3 ratings comments for it. I believe that the company has changed the product from that reviewed in 2009. The one I received in Jan 2010 does not act like the one described in the lower ratings comments.

Yes, It is somewhat difficult to lift a heavy weight with the included metal strap. I use the middle two finger of my hand and brace my lifting wrist with the other hand.

I don't turn it on until the moment before the lift after the strap is attached. It zeros within a second and beeps it completed weight reading in three seconds. It says hold in the corner of the display and I think it eventually times out after several minutes, but I never wait that long.

I have done twenty test lifts on on a known 35.5kg item. All twenty lifts were between 35.48 and 35.52kg.

Appreciated response on that, sounds pretty comprehensive.
I fly a fair bit with a lot of gear for work and leisure time so tend to have heavy cases and near limit. Thanks.
These put me off a bit with the tiny metal clips. There are some similar ones at 7 Day shop again with the tiny metal clips but I guess if they do the job.
