Gone are the days when binding yourself to a wall outlet for electricity is the norm— GoPlug powers mobility!
The GoPlug Smart Power Bank is a beautiful, intelligent and adaptable battery pack designed around the workflows of business professionals, photographers, creatives, travelers and commuters. It's more than just a battery, it's your day-to-day essential life saver, and it does things other power supplies can't.
The GoPlug Smart Power Bank connects to an APP on your smartphone, enabling features that will forever change the way you power mobility. When batteries die, productivity should not.
GoPlug has also designed each bag along-side their revolutionary smart power bank so they work seamlessly well together. These products will keep users connected and increase productivity, leading to increased revenue and eliminate stress for unproductive, frustrated, on-the-go professionals who constantly run out of power.
While overall function of luggage and backpacks hasn’t changed in over eight decades, items carried in them have. By adding power and smart technology into GoPlug Bags, we have disrupted this archaic industry and become the new standard for what bags should be. A mobile app, combined with smart technology, gives travelers added security, enabling them to track their bag or find lost luggage, and added peace-of-mind with a movement alarm. Additional (unrevealed) GoPlug innovations will again set the gold standard for the market.
These are the only bags on the market with AC and DC power outlets perfectly suited for multiple bag options. Our suite of products is a perfect marriage between technology, style, and innovation.
Additionally GoPlug solves all problems consumers and Incumbents face.

Solution to Incumbents Problems
Start-ups, like GoPlug, with smart technology and/or power integrated into bags, have begun emerging in this space. Trunkster, Bluesmart, Away, and Raden have received investments from private equity partners. Trunkster, a powered luggage start-up company, recently appeared on ABC’s SharkTank receiving a $1.5 million dollar investment from Mark Cuban at a $28M valuation— Nearly 30 times their YTD Sales. Bluesmart, a pre-revenue powered bag start-up, raised $14.5M in seed money in late 2015. GoPlug already has revenue of $250K and we’re estimating to close 2016 with an additional $4.2M in revenue.
We’re better than these startups for many reasons. Our tech is bleeding edge and we have more product offerings. Other competitive advantages include:
GoPlug is uniquely positioned with proprietary technology and design elements clearly established in the market. Power and Smart Technology are key drivers in the bag and luggage industry— GoPlug offers both. Conversations with executives at incumbent bag companies confirmed through their internal market research that the top four things consumers look for when purchasing bags/Luggage are:
2) Smart Technology
3) Expandable Accessories
4) Suite with Modular/Interchangeable components
As you can see, every big player is suffering from the same problem driving the consumer market.
In 2015, the global luggage market generated about 31.62 billion U.S. dollars alone. This amount will double by 2020. Some key drivers are:
