During our vacation to the Philippines last year, we had some little hassle at the airport. Despite weighing our luggage at home, we still ended up having overweight bags. Instead of paying for the excess baggage fees, we just transferred some heavy items to our carry-on bags.

We realized that it was a bad move when we were inspected by the TSA prior to entering the boarding gate. It turned out that the lotions and perfumes that we were bringing to the Philippines as “pasalubong” or presents were included among the stuff that we transferred to our hand luggage. Only a limited quantity of liquids are allowed on-board so we were given two choices – to go back and check-in these items or to throw them to the trash.
If you have traveled with small kids on an international flight, you would understand why leaving those stuff in the trash was the only option that we considered.
Had we used this Mira luggage digital scale, it would have saved us from all those headaches. This compact 6” x 1.25” x 0.75” gadget is portable, easy to use, accurate as well.
A green light blinks to indicate when a bag is under 20kg (or 50 lbs) and then a red light means that it is over the airline’s weight limit. You also have the option to set the units in kilograms, pounds, or stones.
This digital scale is definitely a must-have for travelers. It will save you money on excess baggage fees and you do not have to worry about whether or not your baggage is over the limit prior to checking-in. It even comes with free pouch and free battery – ready to use right out of the box!
