Hi dad travels a lot and he is addicted to gifting luggage scales. Over the years I have purchased over 20 of them. No joke. This is the only one that I purchased for him that he not even get to see because I kept it for myself. It comes in a cool cylindrical box, The shape is also cool and nice to hold. Seems like it's made well. It has a hook to hold the luggage rather than a a strap with a clip. This can be a pro or a con depending on your personal preference. To me, this means it takes a bit longer to make sure that the suitcase will stay on the hook while I try to balance it during weighing, but it also means less parts to break. The hook also seems to be pretty strong. Overall I am very pleased with this scale and hope they will be restocked soon because I plan on getting a few for my dad.
I love the dual display, and the change of color when the display locks on measurement stabilization. However, the hook on the bottom is cumbersome and a bit heavy (every gram counts!), and the worst part about the hook is that its natural rest position has it sitting with the pointy end of the hook touching the middle of the LCD screen, which will eventually almost certainly lead to a cracked screen if you travel with this in your luggage. That's a major design oversight in my opinion. I actually removed the metal hook in a vice, and attached a loop of lightweight paracord in its place, which I can hitch onto a suitcase handle to take a reading. Now I'm more comfortable traveling with this.
My only remaining pet peeves: (1) as another reviewer pointed out, this takes coin batteries, so you need to have a couple of spares in case your scale runs out of power at an inopportune time. USB charging capability would improve this. (2) The scale is bigger than it needs to be, both...
PROS: I have been using this A LOT for work and some personal trips since purchased a number of months back. Very accurate to all airport checking scales in US/Europe within +/- 0.1 lb. If you load your bag to 49.8lb you should have ZERO problems at check in with a 50 lb limit. USE WARNING: The low battery warning(screen turns red) does not give that much time before it keeps timing out on you. I would recommend having two(2) extra CR2032 3V coin cell battery's with you if your on the road a lot. LITTLE CON: Batteries sometime came loose. SOLVED by putting a small piece of foam/tissue ball between the battery cover and top of the batteries to prevent the batteries from lifting up. Never have had an issue since. The battery hole is too big and/or the battery hold down clip too short to keep the batteries secure under vibration since the batteries can shift side to side in the over sized hole.
