It hasn't been this cheap for almost a year. I own one and it's quite good. It has 360° leveller and flashes when the correct weight is registered. It also has a retractable tape measure.
Also available at Dick Smith.
Weight limit: 50kg
Batteries: 2 x AAA

Accurate to 3kg
Accurate to 3kg
So a carry-on may show 7kg, but actually be 10kg, so you'd need to check it in an pay the penalty?
I meant I weighed a 3kg mill jug and the scale said 3kg.
@sween64: Don't want to get all nerdy but just to set the record straight, 3 litre milk weighs ~3.1 kg(milk's density being 1.033 kg/litre). So based on this sample, the accuracy is 96.67%. That's excluding the weight of the milk container itself.
@pjbargain15: > Don't want to get all nerdy but
Where did you get the 3kg figure from? I have one and it doesn't seem that inaccurate - it even 'zeros' itself on startup each time.
Accurate enough. The weight I get is usually what the airport scales get from memory.
don't forget to put "@kogan" at the end of the title, good deal tho!
It's a Kogan product but sure.
Edit: scrimshaw did it for me and it reminded me to check DSE, thanks
Yes & no. I've used a few types and these Kogan ones are actually pretty good. Good strong build quality, uses AAA Batteries, constantly accurate (relatively speaking) and has a mini Tape Measure built-in however they have been cheaper before (got my last few for $9ea delivered IIRC).
seems better than the other version that uses button type battery. at least AAA easier to find and cheaper i think and can be rechargeable
Thought i received a $30 off kogan voucher after purchasing from ticketek.
Instead, I got "Hi there, Welcome Back to Kogan.com". :(:(
I kinda want one to weigh laundry loads. So mostly small sizes like 2.5kg, 7kg, etc… Could this do it accurately? I've tried with cheapo ones, but it's usually off by ~1kg.
Nothing would stop you from weighting your weight + laundry loads, put down the laundry loads and then weight your weight again. The difference in weight will be the weight of your laundry loads.
Like on a scale? I've never thought of doing that before, but it sounds like it would work. I still need to buy a scale though.
A hook scale is going to be more accurate and consistent than stand-on ones.
too much of maths when the great 12 $ bargain is there :-)
Why do you want to weigh your laundry, what does it achieve?
Well there is load limits for certain cycles. And I'm worried about overloading the washing machine and damaging it, especially since washing machines aren't cheap. I don't know if it's a legitimate concern or not.
Do you own a bathroom scale?
Just weigh yourself then weigh yourself holding a basket of your clothes
I couldn't find one, but it sounds like a good idea!
Used it for travel. Pretty convenient and it gets the job done +- 0.5kg but i remember mine was $6 or $9
…is this a bargain?
Kinda just seems like what it should cost.
Thanks OP. Didn’t want it but ordered one anyway!
It might help the (profanity) who are instructed to re pack their suitcase in front of you at the check-in BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO STUPID NOT TO WEIGH THEM BEFOREHAND..
This is worth getting and great to have in view of airlines being so tight on weight.
I got the $9 one from kmart, but at least this one takes AAA batteries.
I'm going to weigh my laundry before and after it's washed and dried, so I know how much dirt was on there
Oh my god hahaha!
This was a better deal and its rechargeable via micro usb. Plus, with an in-built power bank and powerful flashlight.
I know right, I've been waiting for this deal to resurface.
Thank you, ordered one!
Cheers, used my 90mm Cordless Framing Nailer-CB500 $10 credit
According to the product manual… "You can measure your carry-on luggage in inches, centimetres or millimetres."
Saw simiar before at aldi selling it at ~$7 ?
Yep, I bought the Aldi one. I'd say exact same product for almost half the price. So I can't agree that this is a good deal…unless you can never get to the shops, then maybe the shipping is worth it.
just in time before I travel definately need this.
Thanks, got it for $2 dollars as there were $10 ref feral credit left.
For what it's worth, K-mart have a basic digital luggage scale for $9 everyday. It's a good travel size and seems accurate in my experience.
Reject stores have that same one as Kmart. I bought the same model on ebay but with backlight green screen for $4.54 and I have tried it, it's awesome.
kmart sells one for $9 of similar size/features.
Can I ask a silly question please? How do you use the device to weigh a luggage which is more than 20kg? Where do you strap it on and maintain the balance without your own intervention getting in the way? I do own one but never worked out how to use it. Appreciate any advice.
It's has a strap and a hook. You put the strap through the handle of your luggage and the hook connects back to itself.
Why is the strap on one side and not in the middle as all luggage scale? Not quite ergonomic!
How exactly does it work? i can see you hook it around the luggage, but how does that measure? Do you lift it up?
Yes. The luggage applies a force in a downwards direction thanks to gravity.
Haha. But how much would you tug before you lift the luggage
you have to lift the luggage off the floor to get an accurate reading.. i dunno how some ppl get through life
Well, thats what i assumed for it to work, but looking at the pictures and the weight limit of 50kg, i questioned it ability to hold such weight before breaking because i can't tell whether its plastic or metal. I'm not stupid but its one of the things that I've never seen before, i'm sure it'd be the same for you.
My one just arrived today
Reasonable size solid plastic build
as stated has a strap to strap the handle of your luggage then lift luggage to measure the weight.
The reason for the weight on one side is to get a better grip when weighing.
Thanks, actually helpful.
