The best travel luggage scales to guard against excess baggage

Nobody likes to the airport and find out that they packed way too much. Carry on and regular checked luggage weight restrictions have been enforced more and more in recent years. So how can you guard against excess luggage fees and the embarrassment of having to ditch some stuff at the airport? Well, luggage scales of course. There are many travel-size scales that are excellent for very little money nowadays. Some even offer a few bells and whistles. So without further ado, here are what we see as the best travel luggage scales.

The winner: Balanzza MINI USB Rechargeable Digital Luggage Scale

Balanzzahas managed to make a very accurate and durable luggage scale with their mini USB model.As the name implies, this model charges via USB and its internal lithium ion battery. This is a welcome addition to the luggage scale market. We were very sick of changing batteries on our units all the time. The unit is super simple to operate and surprisingly ergonomic considering the very reasonable price. You can easily slip this unit into your bag and not really know its there, until you need it. The scale comes with a 5 year warranty too. Overall, if we had to recommend one travel luggage scale, it would be this one.

Runner up: Tarriss Jetsetter Digital Luggage Scale

A very close second is the Tarriss Jetsetter scale. This digital scale has a great aesthetic and is actually slimmer that the Balanzza. Couple that with a full lifetime warranty and you definitely have a choice to make. A 110lb capacity should be good for pretty much anyone and user reviews on this unit are through the roof.

Runner up: Dunheger luggage scale

We included this unit from Dunheger because of its impeccable design (it was even included in the gift bags for Golden Globe attendees last year!), backlit display and solid ergonomic design. We especially like how this unit can switch between pounds and kilograms with the push of a button.

Even Brad Pitt needs a luggage scale. The Dunheger luggage scale was given out at the 2016 Golden Globes!


Conclusion: Best travel luggage scales

There isn’t really much to these to be honest. But we really like the USB charging capability on the Balanzza. Other than this feature we’d say that the overall best build quality is probably the Tarriss Jetsetter. Any of these three travel luggage scales are excellent value and should last many years.
