With many airlines reducing the maximum weight per bag to 50 lb maximum, it is easy to overpack. The Solutions Collection has a built-in digital scale to weigh luggage and avoid surprises and costly over-weight charges. The built-in luggage scale uses load cell technology with a proven history in many digital scale applications. The system's electronics were designed and tested to withstand the punishment luggage must endure from baggage handlers. Pushing a button activates the scale, the LCD display provides the readout in pounds or kilograms, and the unit automatically turns off after 15 seconds to avoid excessive battery drain and extend battery life.
