During the Soviet era, every family had at least one balance. But how else to sell vegetables and fruits on the market? It was then a humble mechanical accessory that used a spring and scale. Now the situation has changed. Finding a mechanical steelyard on sale is extremely difficult. But their electronic counterparts are being sold more and more actively. They are also used to measure the mass of an object by weight. Moreover, they are much more convenient and informative – the result will be indicated with an accuracy of at least 100 grams. Let's take a look at the best electronic steelyards. Or luggage scales, as they are also called.

One of the most convenient steelyards among all those included in our review. But he is also the most expensive. Not everyone wants to pay 1300 rubles for such a device. Perhaps this purchase is seen as relevant for those who travel abroad almost every week. With such a steelyard, you can quickly find out the weight of your luggage. This way you will find out whether he will be allowed into the aircraft cabin, whether he will have to pay for an overweight.
The device has a white painted casing. This strongly distinguishes it from the background of modern electronics, usually with a black case. The steelyard has only two buttons and a small segment display. The device shows the weight of the object suspended from it with an accuracy of 100 g. It is suggested to hang the bag on a metal loop and a cloth strap attached to it. You definitely won't be able to damage the handle of a bag with such a design.
Many electronic steelyards are terribly afraid of a heavy load. But the Beurer LS10 is not one of those. With its maximum, you can weigh a 50-kilogram object. Needless to say that even just keeping such a weight on outstretched arms is extremely difficult? Therefore, you can be sure that you will never get to the limit.
The device is powered by three LR44 batteries. It seems that they will be enough for the entire period of using the balance. It should also be noted that the German manufacturer provides a three-year warranty period. Once again, they make it clear to us that it is possible to use such weights for many years, nothing will happen to them. Well, in conclusion, we note that a flashlight is located on the side of the steelyard. You should not count on a particularly high brightness of the glow, but its very presence is still pleasant.
- Sturdy construction;
- There is a belt for securing cargo;
- Built-in flashlight;
- There is an overload indicator;
- Maximum permissible weight – 50 kg;
- Extended warranty period;
- A well-readable display is used.
- High price.
Outwardly, this steelyard looks like a folded penknife. However, this can be said about many of its competitors. As you can see, it comes with a comfortable belt, to which the load is suspended. Well, the result is displayed here on a segment display. Unlike the model discussed above, there are two digits after the decimal point. This means that you can see a more accurate weight. Of course, this is not so important when weighing luggage. But if you need to know the weight of a relatively small object, then you will definitely thank the developers from Tefal!
On the side of the display are buttons for turning the device on and off. The manufacturer made these keys touch sensitive. But this does not mean that there are any questions about their durability. As for the hinge, it also turned out to be very reliable. It is difficult to say how large an item must be for this strap to break. The manufacturer himself states in the technical specifications that the maximum steelyard is designed for weighing a 40-kilogram mass. Interestingly, there is even a taro compensation function. This means that the weight of the bag in which the item is located will not affect the measurement result. In short, this is a great option for those who need to regularly check the weight of vegetables, luggage or something else. Only the price tag will not please you. In the official online store of Tefal, they ask for 1800 rubles for an electronic steerage. It is clear that in other places you can stumble upon a lower cost, but in any case, it will not be a cheap purchase.
- Weight is determined with an accuracy of 50 g;
- Able to support 40 kg;
- Convenient strap for hanging the load;
- Built-in well-readable backlit display;
- Long work with two AAA-batteries;
- There is a tarot compensation function.
- Very high cost.
US Medica Digital Luggage Scale
Another road scales sold at far from the lowest price. Their distinctive feature is not an orange case, made of plastic. Even a flashlight, which is a bright LED built into one of the side ends, is not surprising. The main difference between this model and its competitors is the ability to use it as a power bank! To do this, the Digital Luggage Scale includes a full-size USB port, from which a wire can be connected, for example, to a smartphone.
It should be understood that the manufacturer needed to make the steerage small enough, so he built a not very capacious battery into it. 2600 mAh is not the parameter that would allow charging a modern smartphone completely. But this will be quite enough to return at least part of the charge to the device when only these scales are at hand. Well, the steelyard itself is charged via the micro-USB connector. Perhaps this is the main drawback of the device. If you are going to sell it for 2 thousand rubles, then equip it with a more modern USB Type-C socket!
As for the main functionality, the electronic steelyard is nothing special. Information is displayed here on a relatively small display, supplemented by backlighting. The numbers are 11 mm high, so in most cases even an elderly person can see them. Unlike the specimens mentioned above, the measurement step here is ten grams. With the maximum use of this device, you can weigh a 50-kilogram load. For this, by tradition, a loop strap is used that clings to a metal hook. Residents of other countries should like the fact that here you can switch between units of measurement – grams, kilograms, ounces and pounds are available. As if this is a good choice even for those who regularly deal with considerable amounts of gold!
- Maximum measurable weight – 50 kg;
- The display is backlit;
- You can switch the unit of measure;
- Able to play the role of a flashlight;
- Powerbank is built in;
- Automatic shutdown implemented;
- Long battery life from a full charge.
- Very high cost.
This electronic steelyard has a much less interesting appearance. It feels like its body is made of fairly cheap plastic. Yes, they still did not paint it in a different color, leaving it black. At the same time, no one began to lower the price tag. The manufacturer asks for 2 thousand rubles for his creation. Is it worth it?
The measurement result is displayed here on the simplest segment display, which is familiar to many from calculators. I am glad that the device measures the mass with an accuracy of 10 grams. Perhaps this is the main advantage of this balance. But does everyone need such high accuracy? This is a big question.
The mass is measured here by hanging the load from a metal hook. In this regard, the device is very similar to the old mechanical steelyards. Alas, there is no cloth strap in the kit. Of course, you can make it yourself, but it will take some time …
Continuing the conversation about Samsonite CO1-09100, one cannot fail to mention the backlight of the screen. This allows you to see the measurement result even if you are in a dark room. By the way, the same result can be displayed not only in kilograms, but also in pounds. As for the maximum load, it is 40 kg. It seems that this will be enough for most buyers. Nothing bad can be said about the batteries that provide power – they will need to be replaced only after many years of using the balance wheel.
- The warranty period has been extended to two years;
- The display is backlit;
- The measurement step is only 10g;
- Able to weigh a 40 kg load;
- Long battery life.
- Not the most interesting design;
- I would like a more modern screen;
- High price;
- No belt included.
This electronic steelyard surprises with a large number of buttons. All of them are located here under a very large display. All this hints that the device has advanced functionality. This is evidenced by the price of 3 thousand rubles.
But let's start by describing the disadvantages. The accessory also has them. Basically, the buyer can complain about the measured weight. You can weigh a maximum of 25 kg load. If it turns out to be heavier, the device will warn you about it. And there is a risk that the plastic case simply will not withstand a more serious mass. It is also possible to criticize the steelyard for the lack of a weighing strap that would attach to the hook used here.
As for the rest, there are no complaints about this model. It measures weight in kilograms and pounds. And the device is able to remember it! Switching between the measurement results is carried out by pressing the arrow buttons. The device memorizes a maximum of eight weighings. This is very useful in cases where you are measuring the mass of several items, but do not have a paper with a pen on hand. The steelyard can also sum up the weight of the saved measurements, replacing the calculator with itself! Now, won't you be surprised that the Rapala RCTDS50 is in demand among anglers?
In a word, this is an excellent electronic balance, albeit not devoid of flaws. It remains to add that its display is backlit, which can come in handy at any time. The device is powered by two AAA batteries, which will only need to be replaced after 600 hours of continuous operation.
- Stores up to eight measurement results;
- The sum of eight weighings can be calculated;
- The display is backlit;
- High measurement accuracy;
- Long-term operation from a set of batteries.
- Moisture protection would not hurt;
- High price;
- Not very high weighing limit;
- I would also like to get a strap for securing the load.
This accessory is marketed as road scales. It has a convenient strap that wraps around the handle of the luggage bag, after which you can weigh. Perhaps this is one of the most inexpensive ways to avoid overweight when boarding an aircraft, because the LUMME LU-1326 costs only 400 rubles.
This model has a very compact size. But not so much that it was inconvenient to hold the balance in hand when weighing. The result is shown here on a modest segment display. Alas, the measurement accuracy is equal to one hundred grams, so the steelyard is definitely not suitable for anglers. But fans of selling their vegetables may well be satisfied with such accuracy.
Maximum of such a steelyard can be used to weigh a 40-kg load. In this case, the result can also be indicated in pounds. This should appeal to those who regularly travel abroad. When nothing is suspended from the steelyard, the display automatically turns off. This ensures incredibly long battery life. By the way, it comes in the kit.
- Nice design;
- Supplied with a load securing strap;
- Very low cost;
- Long-term operation from one battery;
- Small size and weight;
- Huge maximum load;
- There are at least two color options;
- Taro compensation is available.
- Measurement accuracy is not very high.
Another electronic steelyard, available in at least two colors. And it is also very cheap – in Russian stores they ask for about 400 rubles for it. For this money, you will receive a relatively small device, the body of which is made of plastic. If the weight to be weighed is not very heavy, a finger ring can be used. Attachment to the load is carried out by means of a metal hook. No belt included. But on the other hand, there is a battery that provides the steelyard with a very long work.
This model can measure loads up to 25 kg. If the mass is less than ten kilograms, the measurement step will not exceed 5 grams. However, there are still questions about the accuracy of measurements. One of the shoppers wrote a review in anger, which says that the steelyard took a pound bag of sugar for twice as much. It is possible that this man got married. Be that as it may, but we recommend choosing a more expensive steelyard for yourself – it will definitely not have such problems.
But let's get back to Energy BEZ-150. This model is greatly simplified. It provides measurement results in kilograms only. Its display is a segment one, it can be backlit at night. Saving the result is not implemented here, and the function of tarot compensation is also absent. The device is switched on by pressing the corresponding button. He can turn off automatically, which will definitely please a forgetful person.
- Low cost;
- There are a couple of color options;
- The display is supplemented with a backlight;
- Long battery life.
- No belt for securing cargo;
- The accuracy of the displayed results is questionable;
- The maximum can be weighed only 25 kg;
- Not very comfortable to hold.
This is a list of the best luggage weights. With their help, you can quickly find out if your bag will be allowed on the plane. It is also, perhaps, the best way to weigh a cat – yes, the result will be interesting to a person at any age. Such an accessory can come in handy in other situations that are much less predictable. Therefore, we recommend to hurry up with the purchase.
