PowerGo / Power Charging Luggage


PowerGo: power-generating luggage. A challenge many travellers face is recharging devices, such as phones and tablets, on the go.

As the luggage wheels spin, they recharge an integrated battery pack. This pack can accept USB ports to charge users' accessories. A designated zipped compartment allows storage of charging devices.

This system lets users passively recharge their luggage during normal use, and the internal battery provides power whether the suitcase is moving or idle.
