"so jeff you've got a lot of heavy bags that usually sit on this. do you think this device will be able to measure up to the type of bags you usually place on this scale?" "oh, i think so. it actually looks like a pretty hefty device. our scales are calibrated every year, once a year, so you know the weight is exactly accurate on these. so i'd be interested in seeing how it stacks up to it." to test the airscale we'll weigh 2 different bags of luggage. first with the air scale, and then with the scale at southwest. first up bag 1. jeff clips the strap on to the air scale, and sets it from charging mode to scale mode. he clips it onto the luggage and weighs...it reads 29 pounds. he weighs the same bag over to their southwest scale- sot-" and right about 30..so it was about a pound difference. right about a pound difference. " we try the second bag. it's a little heavier. and the air scale has a problem with that. "no..does that just say no. yup." the air scale can't handle our bag that weighs 70 pounds even though the instructions say it can weight up to 80. "-right it's under the limit and it's not registering. " so we decide to take some weight out and try again. our weight with the air scale for this bag... sot- "just under 40." he weighs the bag on the southwest scale- sot - "about 40 pounds. around 40. so it is, would you say it's pretty accurate? i'd say it's pretty accurate, yeah." sot-" i believe it performed as far as the weight, it did really well. when it gets to a certain weight and it doesn't register, i could see that being an issue. as accurate as it seems to be. like if they're doing this before they get here, in line it's going to speed up the process, i would definitely recommend it myself to our passengers or friends. i got to ask you though, does it work?" "i would say it works, yes." ch>> shane and jeff also were able to test the device charging element to the air scale, and jeff said that worked as well. .
