Some major airlines no longer accept ‘smart’ luggage with non-removable lithium ion batteries as checked or carry-on luggage. The powerful batteries can potentially overheat and pose a fire hazard during flight. In some instances, smart bags with removable batteries will be allowed on board if the battery can be removed on site and taken on board with the customer. Check with your airline for restrictions.
