The first thing I wanted to do when I got this scale was to test it for accuracy. I used dumbbells, which of course have a known and accurate weight, inside of a luggage bag to test the scale readings. I found that the weights were within a reasonable tolerance of +/- 0.4 lbs. Here are the results:
Dumbbell Total ______ Scale Reading
20 lbs _____________ 19.8 lbs
30 lbs _____________ 29.6 lbs
35 lbs _____________ 34.8 lbs
50 lbs _____________ 49.6 lbs
With a max load of 660 lbs, this is a mid-weight scale. It might be a bit of overkill for luggage...unless you pack like my wife :). In all seriousness, you could probably get by with a smaller scale for luggage if you want. With that said, this scale will weigh luggage accurately. It might be a bit inconvenient since there is no handle, however. I use this scale to weigh newborn calves and especially for weighing deer. For those purposes, I am pleased with the performance. I suppose this scale will weigh something over a pound, but I recommend weighing items between 2 lbs and up to near the max capacity of 660 lbs. Overall, I'm pleased!
