    A bit too heavy to take with you travelling…

  •  

    Aldi luggage scales used to be good .. this model looks fancy but the top metal cover comes off easily. It looks like it has been stuck on with a little hot glue.

  •  

    These are great. Very accurate.

    •  

      I should clarify, the similar model they used to sell a year or two ago is very accurate and no issues. Noticed the above about new ones maybe not being as well built.

  •  

    I bought similar ones on ebay a few years ago for about half that price. Still going strong and never a moment's trouble with them.

    Mine takes one CR2032 battery.

    For the poster who complained about flat batteries - a little secret very few people know about. You take the battery out in between trips. In any case I keep a stock of batteries, bought for pennies on ebay, as I have other things that need these batteries. Not paying $5 at Woolies for one battery. I use my scales for all sorts of weighing at home, not just travel, so I leave the battery in.

      Too much of hassle.

    •  

      Just don't let kids near the batteries if you are taking them out, dangerous if swallowed.

        No kids in my house.

        In any case, I am always careful with batteries, specially those very small watch batteries. I seem to have so many things that need them. Wish they would standardise on just one or two sizes, one for watches, and one for torches, clocks, scales and other things. Every new thing I buy needs a different battery to the ones I have in stock!

    Looks pretty much exactly the same as the one I've bought from Ebay and been using for years. Not really a bargain as it's a normal price (other than you don't need to wait for it to arrive from China).

    I'm not sure how good this luggage scale from Aldi, but I bought this from The Good Guys 4 years ago and it's really very good. It's so accurate that even weighing scale at Airport hardly differs!!

    •  

      Yes I now use this Salter and it's accurate. I also have one from eBay, one from Aliexpress and 2 of these Aldi ones. Problem with these 4 are that the measured weight can sometimes differ slightly between readings. If your luggage is heavy, I find that they have a hard time locking on the weight - the luggage has to remain very still. With the Salter it pretty much returns a reading within seconds even if your luggage is bobbing around being suspended in mid air.

    Can it even support 40KGs before it breaks?

    •  

      Which airline allows more than 30KG in one bag? There is some work safely lay I think that only allows maximum of 33 or 35KG.

      •  

        you don't necessarily have to use it for luggage, there are other circumstances where you need to weight something maybe upto 45 kgs.

  •  

    I find these hanging types really inaccurate (or I just cheaped out too much lol). Never had issues doing it the ol fashioned way using normal scales with yourself then holding the bag.
    Call it free exercise lol.

  •  

    Hmm, seems like a good buy, but I'll have to weigh up between the pros and cons.

  •  

    Anyone having problems with their scale? I removed the plastic and it still didn't turn on

    For anyone interested I checked the accuracy of these at work today using a calibrated balance. I used 2 different buckets with work related stuff in them, weighed them on the calibrated balance and then picked up the buckets with the Aldi scales.

    Bucket 1 on calibrated balance: 17.100kg
    Aldi measured mass: 17.13kg
    Difference = approx 30 grams (0.03kg)

    Bucket 2 on calibrated balance: 31.234kg
    Aldi measured mass: 31.17kg
    Difference = approx 64 grams (0.064kg)

    Pretty accurate.
