No matter how long or short the flight, the process of traveling is always a bit painstaking. From packing the perfect carry-on to getting through security in a timely manner, making your way to the gate in time to board is not without its obstacles. This reality led us to Amazon's best-selling travel accessories section, which enlightened us to its number one product: Etekcity's Digital Hanging Luggage Scale (currently on sale for $10). The tool essentially allows you to weigh your carry-on, backpack, or large suitcase before leaving for the airport, eliminating issues with weight limits and baggage fees. More importantly, it will assuage any anxieties you have about being forced to rearrange or repack an overweight bag in the baggage check line.
Unsurprisingly, the gadget has claimed the number-one spot on Amazon's best seller list, amassing 3425 customer reviews in the process. Amazon customers speak highly of the scale's durability, battery longevity, and accuracy; it can weigh bags up to 110 pounds or 50kgs within 0.1lb precision accuracy. Here's how it works:
1. Loop the nylon strap through the top handle of your luggage.
2. Lift up and evenly suspend it in the air until the scale stabilizes and locks your final weight, which takes just seconds.
3. Unpack and repack as necessary to abide by weight limitations and avoid fees at the airport.
