The future of travel is here with Raden luggage. Available in both a carry-on size and a larger size to check in, both models share the same features. The Raden suitcase has two USB ports, and can be used as a charger for your iPhone, iPad, or any other devices using a USB cord. This luggage has an integrated scale so you can weigh it before you leave the house and there won’t be any unpleasant surprises when you get to the airport. It contains a tracker, so you’ll be able to know where in the world your suitcase is at any given time.

Raden offers two different suitcase models, the A22 Carry and the A28 Check. Weighing in at just 8.4 pounds, the A22 Carry measures 22 inches by 14 inches by 9 inches, which meets the carry-on requirements for most airlines. The A28 Check model weighs 13 pounds and measures 28 inches by 21 inches by 13 inches. Both models are available in seven different colors and two different finishes, glossy or matte. I tested Raden’s A22 Carry in the color Light Purple with the glossy finish.

Each Raden suitcase contains a 7,800mAh battery which gives up to four full smartphone charges. There are two USB ports, so you can charge two devices simultaneously.

Raden offers a free accompanying app that you’ll want to download and pair to your suitcase in order to be able to use all of its features. You set up a Raden account within the app and allow it track your location. Then you’ll get information about the closest airports, weather, and how to get there. You an also input information about your upcoming trips and what airline you’re flying, and the app will let you know your luggage weight requirements for that airline.

You can weigh your Raden luggage using nothing more than the suitcase, your hand, and the app. You’ll need to calibrate your suitcase, then you can weigh it by holding it off the ground for a few seconds. The app walks you through exactly how to do this.

The suitcase automatically tracks its own location using Bluetooth Low Energy, which has a range of 100 feet. By checking the app, you can see if your suitcase is within reach, within range, or out of range. If your suitcase is out of range, then Raden’s Crowd GPS will use any nearby user’s smartphone to send time-stamped coordinates to Raden’s server. This is assuming, of course, that there are other Raden users in proximity to your suitcase.

Additionally, the suitcase has a TSA combination lock and comes with a USB cord, protective cover/laundry bag, eye mask, and earplugs. Note that the other end of the USB cable is a micro-USB plug, which you’ll need in order to charge up the suitcase itself. You can also use the same cord to charge any mUSB devices you may own, but for Apple products, you’ll need to use your own lightning-to-USB cord.
