No animals were harmed in the production of this review!
Now that may seem a strange statement when reviewing a Digital Luggage Scale and I am not convinced that balanzza had weighing cats in mind when they produced it as they don’t show anyone doing it on their Other Uses page, but Sands does a lot of work with the Stray Cats Of Almerimar which involves weighing them for medication (especially the young kittens rescued off the streets), and for flights to Germany when they have found a new home. The balanzza with its easy grip and useful strap has turned out to be purrfect for the job!!
Our Kitten Oscar Testing Out The Balanzza – He Really Didn’t Mind!
The Balanzza Digital Luggage Scale features a simple way of weighing heavy items without the need to read the weight while lifting it. Simply attached the strap of the Balanzza to the object or luggage, lift it of the ground for a few seconds until you hear a beep sound that indicates the weight has been locked on the display; set the object down, and read the weight on the screen.
The balanzza is really easy to use: insert the 2 AAA batteries (provided) and press the ‘on’ button. You can select to weigh in lb or kg (max weight 110lb or 45kg), and the actual device only weighs 10 Oz (283 Gr). So light enough to slip in your bag once you have weighed it, and at 5.75 inches x 3.5 inches x 1 inch it is small enough as well.
In this day and age with a lot of airline carriers trying to squeeze as much money out of travellers via excess baggage fees and the such, the balanzza is a crucial weapon for the road warrior in their fight against the bullies of the sky! With a RRP of $24.95 it is more than affordable and I have little doubt will pay for itself very quickly indeed …… and as you can see it is flexible enough to meet a number of less orthodox uses as well!
