The Wireless Charging Smartbag is the ultimate solution for users on the go, who fail to find time to recharge devices. The combination of proprietary smart device connection cables, adapters, and battery banks into this Smartbag can substantially increase the freedom and organization of users of Qi enabled devices. Current market research shows no viable all-in-one solution that provides this ease-of-use. According to Cisco VNI, the number of networked devices per person is expected to jump to fourteen by 2022. This paper discusses the work, validation, and development of the resulting fully inclusive system utilizing a mobile application to allow users to view battery percentage data for each registered device including the backpack itself, as well as the ability to prioritize device charging based on need and available charging capacity. Additional features include a Smartbag charging dock, GPS geolocation, and Global Wifi HotSpot.
