This Melbourne-Designed Carry On Luggage Will Charge Your Smart Devices

We’ve all been there. Frantically running around an airport trying to find a free socket to charge our smartphone in, or having to rummage around your bag for shrapnel in a foreign currency to pay for juice from one of those charging stations.

Well, fear not anymore. July is here.

Now, the July carry-on is not the first carry-on luggage with the ability to charge your smart devices, but it’s certainly the first to be designed right here in Melbourne.

The July carry-on case has been devised by Melburnian’s Richard Li—ex-founder of Brosa—and Athan Didaskalou—ex-founder of Three Thousand Thieves—who took twelve months to design and perfect the case.

The case itself is made from 100% aerospace-grade German polycarbonate so it’s tough as nails. The battery is ejectable and has QuickCharge capability with both USB and USB-C ports so you can charge everything from your smartphone to your laptop.

The battery and ports are hidden discretely under the handle, and they pass all airline and airport safety regulations. No drama.

July only sells direct to customers via their website, so you’re not going to cop any middle man margins here. At $295 delivered it’s a pretty good deal.

The case comes in charcoal, navy, burgundy, forrest, and nude.

July also offers a 100-day return trial promise, so if you’re not keen you can send it back free of charge. It also comes with a lifetime warranty.

As part of their ‘Founders Club,’ you also get free monogramming on a complimentary leather tag when you order.
