Take it to the Limit

Whenever we take a flight somewhere, we are inevitably faced with the task of packing light and that's not always an easy thing to do. When at the airport check-in, we often find ourselves silently praying that we don't get dinged with overweight baggage charges. We recently discovered the Heys xScale® PRO, a tiny yet powerful device that weighs luggage on the go. The handheld auto-locking digital scale can weigh up to 110 lbs (50 kg). So now when we're away on a trip or just preparing to leave for one, we can confidently check our bags knowing that we haven't exceeded the limit. Sweet!
