This unit replaced my old luggage scale which was not always accurate. While the instructions for using the Heys scale could be improved, the unit was easy to use after figuring out the proper sequence of steps. The instructions state to wait for the scale to reach a zero balance and it is important to follow that step. Otherwise, readings can be erroneous. In multiple weighings on the same bag, the scale gave the same reading each time. My old scale would give a different weight each time.
The Heys scale is very compact and easily fits into my carry-on bag. It is a must when traveling to avoid extra baggage fees and with the possibility of airlines charging for carry-ons that are over 25 pounds, this scale will be even more valuable.

This digital E-scale is easy to use and so small and lightweight. It's prefect to slide into your suitcase or handbag when traveling. It measure accurately when checked with the airport scales. I am very happy with it and have bought one for each of my siblings families and they all give great reviews also.
I have put this scale to the test on a variety of recent trips since the purchase. The accuracy is good as when I checked baggage in at the airport, the scale kept me under the limit each time. Finding a good pocket to place the scale in so it would not become misplaced was a bigger concern.
How accurate was the sizing? was not a concern

This is a great item if you travel alot. I got it for a vacation with my daughter, and will give it to her when we are back home, as she travels alot for work. I have to pick up another one for my father too, as he liked how it worked when we visited him!

The Heys Digital E Scale is great ! My sister and I travel together, and she has a tendency to over-pack. Since the airlines have become a lot stricter on the baggage weight, she was going to have to leave some souvenirs behind or pay the over-weight fee. Luckily, I was under- weight and could help out. This taught us both a valuable lesson: The scale doesn't cost much, but overweight luggage does and when you get to the airport, it isn't the time to find out about too much weight. I bought her the Heys scale as soon as we got home.
The first time using the Heys Digital E scale was easy - the directions clear and easy. It took the 2 of us to weigh her bags, because they have to be lifted straight up without touching anything. The digital numbers are large and easy to read.One thing- make sure NOT to hold the strap when weighing- it will give a false reading. Upon arrival at the airport, we weighed the bags just before being put on the airport scale, and there wasn't more than a one pound difference. We've used it many times, and it's saved us a fortune in excess baggage fees ! This purchase was a no-brainer!- very happy.

This has proven to be a valuable tool in my travels. Now I no longer have to stress and worry whether my luggage is over the weight limit. I ended up buying another one for my mom. It is easy to just toss into your bag & everyone in the group can use it to avoid outrageous overage fees and embarrassing scrambles to shift contents to other bags inside the airport.
How accurate was the sizing? Good

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? When I opened it, it wouldn't work. I bought a new battery for it and it worked like a charm!
This is a terrific tool for anyone who packs their bags full for commercial flights. Especially on ski trips, we find ourselves pushing that 50 pound limit on our bags. With this tool we save the embarrassment of unpacking/repacking our bags at the airport, or potentially paying extra fees.
