Smart luggage is a smart idea and an advance in technology for travelers. Smart luggage gives a traveler an opportunity to charge personal devices such as cell phones, ipads, laptop computers... However airlines are announcing a smart luggage ban that will begin in 2018 for certain types of smart luggage.
If you have done any traveling to other countries around the world, then you know that you need to have electric plug adapters. Otherwise you will not be able to use your electric products such as computers, phone charger, electric shaver, hair dryer... You may possibly need a voltage converter also for non computer products in some countries.
