MIAMI, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- After raising more than $320,000 on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, crowdfunding for the new Plevo smart luggage continues on Indiegogo InDemand.
Plevo smart luggage, which features the world's first patented garment hanger system, ensures travelers' garments will be wrinkle-free when they arrive at their destination, also makes packing and un-packing for trips much easier, as well.
"We're ecstatic with the response from backers on Kickstarter, who drove presales of Plevo luggage five times higher than our initial campaign goal," said Plevo Founder and CEO Federico Pelatti. "This durable and technologically advanced luggage is designed to simplify packing for busy travelers, and we anticipate more travelers will take advantage of our early-bird crowdfunding discounts still available on Indiegogo over the next few weeks."
With Plevo, travelers no longer need to worry whether their bags will make the weight limit – or where their bags go if the airline loses them.
With its smart dashboard, Plevo is the first suitcase designed to solve both problems – offering a digital scale to let travelers know immediately whether their bags will make the weight limits. And featuring GPS location tracking so travelers can track their bag no matter where it winds up during transit.
Additional tech features include a charging port for gadgets, a removable USB battery pack, a Smart Lock feature (with Face ID, Touch ID or Morse Code), connectivity with Plevo's Android and iOS app, removable 360-degree wheels and lightweight, durable, water-resistant materials.
Created for both business or leisure travel, Plevo suitcases are available in three featured-models during crowdfunding – one for carry-on and two for checked luggage – and each model comes with a 100 percent lifetime guarantee.
The largest Plevo model, the UP, contains a patented garment hanger to keep a traveler's best business wear vertical and wrinkle-free during transport. The UP model is 31.4 inches by 19.7 inches by 11 inches, large enough to bring all the essentials and help busy travelers save time packing and unpacking. It also has removable 360-degree wheels, which means no more fumbling with a garment bag in one hand and a suitcase in the other when loading it into overhead airline storage.
The Infinite model is also designed to be checked-in and is a bit smaller than the UP for maximum mobility – measuring 28.3 inches by 17.9 inches by 11 inches (with an expandable textile option that makes the depth 12.5 inches).
The Runner model combines Plevo's best features with the most portability. Measuring 22 by 13.9 by 9 inches, the Runner is small enough to be a carry-on bag. And, again thanks to the removable wheels, it's even more compatible for overhead storage bins.
All three Plevo models are available in silver, red, blue or pink gold, and all offer these features:
- Removable USB Battery pack
- Smart Lock (Face ID, Touch ID, Morse Code)
- Built-in digital scale
- Android and iOS app
- Distance alerts
- Removable 360-degree wheels with separate packaging
- Battery with 8.000 mAh
The UP model also includes:
- Garment hanger
- GPS location tracking
- Dimensions in inches: 31.4x19.7x11
The Infinite model also includes:
- GPS location tracking
- Expandable textile
- Dimensions in inches: 28.3x17.9x11 (depth up to 12.5 inches with the textile expansion)

- Removable sleeve (for storing device and personal items)
- Dimensions in inches: 22x13.9x9, meeting airline carry-on specifications
All Plevo models comply with TSA, DOT, FAA and IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations, and international airline regulators have confirmed Plevo smart luggage is compliant with all travel regulations. Also, its removable battery makes moving through security checkpoints with Plevo luggage super easy.

The team behind the Plevo line of suitcases – including founder and CEO Federico Pelatti, co-founder and product designer Ivan Nieto and co-founder Federico Guyet – have delivered on solving a need that they experienced as prolific travelers. They wanted to produce the world's first vertical luggage using smart technology. The idea came about in 2015 and the Plevo team spent three years designing and testing the product, then began the manufacturing process in 2018.
