February 19, 2009 Traveling has its pros and cons, and one of the main traps for the unwary is to collect weighty beads, tinkets and keepsakes which stop being a good idea when it comes time to load your bags on the scales for the return flight. International airlines long ago adopted mafia tactics of going easy on outbound luggage allowances and then making you an offer you can't refuse when you are at your most vulnerable – checking in when going home! The Balanzza Ergo is the latest evolution of a digital luggage scale for travellers, weighs just 217 grams and will help you to avoid putting your newly purchased wooden clogs in the airline rubbish bin.

The GBP 20 Balanzza Ergo measures to within 0.1kg accuracy. Firstly, attach the strap securely to the luggage item, then lift off the ground until the Ergo beeps, set the luggage back down and read the weight in a choice of kgs or lbs.

The Balanzza Ergo is also the perfect tool for weighing any packages or parcels and is brilliant for outdoor activities, including fishing, caravanning and cycling. Balanzza accessories such as the ‘Strapz’, clip onto the scales to enable users to easily weigh small to very large boxes or even odd shaped items.

Hi there,

I've recently written a post about these scales which you can find here http://www.homegardenwarehouse.net/gadgets/digital-luggage-scale/

One important factor about these scales which I think a lot of people don't realise is that they're important to TAKE on holidays with you. It's all very well weighing your bags before you leave, its the going back when most people have excess weight.
