Every since I moved to Canada, I have realized the importance of family and relationship! It is heart breaking to be staying away from your loved ones. The only thing that gives you some relief is travelling to India and seeing them once in a while. Sadly, it cannot happen whenever I wish to! Travelling needs a lot of planning, from applying for leave, booking tickets, shopping for gifts and above all PACKING!
The worst part of travelling is PACKING luggage and distributing the load evenly in all the suitcases to ensure that you don’t have to pay over-weight fees. Last year, when I travelled to India, I had to pay over-weight fee just because my baggage weighed around 700 gms more than the weight limit. And, this happened just because my scale did not give me accurate weight reading. Oh, I felt like screaming!
Recently, I was sent Esky Electronic Scale to test and review. I was really happy to get the opportunity as this was something I expected would made my trip to India more stress free. After testing to weight few different luggage, and handbags I was relieved as the reading were pretty accurate. Now, I would not have to worry about being asked to open the luggage right at the airport, to distribute the weight ignored to avoid paying extra dollars. Love it to the core!
The electronic hanging scale is compact and pretty sturdy. It needs 2 AA battery to function, and the batteries come with the package when you purchase it. Convenient to use, this scale has a built in measuring tape and can weigh anything upto 50kgs. The most impressive feature is the backlight that lets you read readings even in poorly lit room. While measuring, within 2 seconds it gives you a stable reading. At this point the weight auto locks on the screen until you reset it. This feature is great as you don’t have to worry about the fluctuating weight and play the guessing game to decide which is the right weight. It is compact and portable, which makes it easier to carry it even in your handbag. The small size of the hook is one thing that needs to be worked on, as with the small sized hook its hard to weigh luggage with big handles. Apart from the I love everything about the scale. I used it to measure my fully packed carry bag that I had carried to travel to Calgary the a week before, and it gave me accurate to the point reading. Impressive!!
