For the ultra-connected
For the past two years, Delsey has been working on Pluggage, a suitcase with a built-in charger. Travelers can charge their smartphones anywhere, so no need to fight for available charging stations at airport lounges.
Customers who purchase a Pluggage bag will be able to download an app that confirms whether the traveler's checked bag has been loaded on the plane. The app will also alert the owner if the bag has been opened.
Other noteworthy features: an overload indicator to help travelers avoid getting slapped with an overweight baggage fee; users can vote online for their favorite add-ons.
Good to know: The Pluggage is still in production and the first bags will not be available for purchase until the second quarter of 2016. The bag will cost around $600 for a 22-inch model.
If you can't wait that long for a new bag, you may want to check out Delsey's new Helium Shadow 3.0. It's a hard-case bag, with a unique top lid opening for packing all your small electronic devices.
