One Essential Item for Modern-Day Air Travel

Posted by

Thanh asked me to put together a quick post to let you all know about this little gadget that I brought on our recent trip to Portland.

It looks like this:

Digital Handheld Luggage Scale

And is commonly known as a “handheld luggage scale”.

Basically what it does is hook into the handle on your luggage, and tell you in lbs or kgs how heavy your luggage is:

Digital Handheld Luggage Scale with Luggage

Super-essential in today’s world, and lets you know readily whether your check-in luggage or hand-carry is too heavy for your flight. Doubly essential within the USA because most American airlines are really retentive about baggage weight.

Efficient Asians™ travel, well… efficiently.

Mine was a gift (thanks mum!) but you can pick up something similar on Amazon.

I'm originally from Australia, but have lived all over the world for the past 5 years. I love taking things apart and putting them back together, and one of those things is the idea of human performance and how far we can push the limits of what is possible. Most seemingly "impossible" problems are solved by a solution at a higher logical level, or by borrowing a framework from a different discipline. What I write about comes from hearing about something and then trying it out in my own life, often with surprising results. I hope you get a lot out of it and feel free to get in touch with me anytime!
