Incase not only makes a slew of different iPhone and iPad accessories, but also some of the best connected luggage products on the market. The company also made its way to Vegas this year to announce the next generation of its connected travel eco-system…
This year at CES 2018, Incase is announcing the new premium ProConnected 4-Wheel Hubless Travel Roller and the next generation of its NoviConnected luggage. The previous gen models already featured built-in power banks and app control, so we were excited to see where Incase would take us next.
The new Incase ProConnected 4-Wheel Hubless Roller features a removable Bluetooth-enabled 20,100mAh power bank with both USB-C and your typical USB ports.
Obviously that makes it fully compatible with iPhone, iPad and your brand new MacBook as well. The Incase Smart app offers up real-time battery management and proximity location services for your connected luggage.
Travel well with the Incase Smart App. Paired with the Incase Smart NoviConnected Luggage…the app offers a suite of features from unlocking your lock remotely, to recording your bag’s location and alerting you if it goes out of range. Users can share their Incase Smart device information and monitor their accessories’ power levels from the user-friendly interface. Safe travels.
The Jacquard Nylon interior houses a main trunk compartment, shoe bag, removable accessory pocket and top storage tray for your electronics and internal battery. The graphite Woolenex exterior carries 4 removable “hubless smooth-glide” wheels, a three-stage trolley handle, YKK double coil zippers and a TSA compliant combo lock, all in a carry-on sized package.
The ProConnected power bank is optimized for simultaneous device charging through a dual port design compatible with USB-C and USB-enabled devices…ProConnected and NoviConnected travel solutions pair with the Incase Smart App via Bluetooth® allowing users to locate their connected luggage with proximity feature notifications and offers users remote access to monitor power levels of connected power banks.
In other words you’re totally connected with a Bluetooth tracker right on your carry-on luggage for $599.99. The new case will be available come March 2018.
As for the next gen NoviConnected Hard-Shell 4 Wheel Hubless Roller, it is shipping in “Q3 2018”. It is very similar to the ProConnected model, but with a smaller 12,000mAh power bank and a Class-A-Makrolon polycarbonate shell. You’ll find the same connected functionality here for the most part, as well as “ergonomic top and side carry handles.”
