The new Hybrid Power Assisted (PA) Bag from Live Luggage capitalises on the company’s pioneering hard top PA series — the world’s first power assisted luggage launched to worldwide acclaim last year — yet is a lightweight, flexible solution for air travellers.
Still retaining motorised wheels and the anti-gravity handle, the Hybrid PA Bag includes a laptop case and overnight travel bag which can both be separately removed to suit the differing check-in requirements of the world’s airlines.
Work out in the gym or the bedroom — not the airport
— with Live Luggage’s new power-assisted suitcase
“This lightweight version of our acclaimed powered suitcase is the ultimate in flexibility and luxury. It takes the strain out of your journey with power-assisted features that make the luggage simply feel almost weightless,” said Live Luggage managing director, Clive Hemsley.
“This flexible packing system suits all types of traveller. The Live Luggage Multi-Bag check-in system is able to meet all airline restrictions. You can either check-in the whole case as one item, or remove either or both the laptop and weekend bags – which can themselves be carried individually or zipped together as one item and taken on board the aircraft as hand luggage.”
The Hybrid PA Bag features Live Luggage’s patented innovative, extendable “anti-gravity” handle that pivots away from the case. This is height-adjustable for user-comfort, so no matter how tall or short the person, 85 per cent of the weight of the luggage is balanced over the suitcase wheels.
The wheels are powered by a rechargeable 12V battery the same size as a standard laptop charger. Because the suitcase determines exactly how much power is needed in any situation, it is highly efficient, resulting in a range of up to 2.4km, and batteries are quickly recharged. Plus, if you are caught without power, you can simply disable the motors and — thanks to the anti-gravity handle — the case will still be much easier to move than traditional designs.
Every PA and Hybrid PA series suitcase is tagged with a unique, laser-etched serial number. In the event of a case going astray, a text message and e-mail will be sent to the owner with details of its location. There is even a built-in umbrella in the anti-gravity handle, which is secure when the case is in locked mode.
