Follow these tips in this video tutorial
Charging your Power Pack
Plug the supplied 110/220 V charger into a power outlet and the mini-USB jack into the socket located in the top handle of the case. The main battery will be fully charged in 8 hours. You can also charge the battery by connecting a USB C charger to the USB C port on the handle, which operates in both directions, charging and discharging.
Charging your mobile devices
You can charge your devices with the USB ports located on the top of the suitcase under the flaps: there is one USB A for all your devices and one USB C for your laptop.
There is an additional USB A socket in the back “Easy-Access” pocket to charge the devices you placed inside.
Why a fingerprint lock ?
How do I configure the fingerprint lock?
First time registration :
When you have received your new suitcase, no fingerprint is recorded in the Memory, any finger will open it until you have recorded one. To record the first fingerprint:
- Place one finger on the sensor to Wake up the system,
- Press the button next to the sensor and hold it down for 2 seconds. The LED will lit yellow quickly,
- Place one finger on the sensor for scanning. The LED lits up blue then green when the scan is completed,
- Remove the finger, the LED flashes again.
- You have to scan the same finger 4 times in succession to record a full fingerprint, until the LED changes to solid blue.
Your fingerprint is saved and will be the only one that can open the bag, it is the master fingerprint that allows to register any additional fingerprint.
How to open your Xtend® with the Auto-Lock feature?
When the zippers pullers are inserted in the lock, the suitcase is automatically closed. To reopen your Xtend®, simply place your finger on the sensor (or open it with the key provided). If a fingerprint is not recognized the LED will change from green to red. Try again with a finger already memorized.
What to do if the Auto-Lock feature does not seem to work?
Should the lock remain dead when you touch it – no light, no sound – you may follow this step:
In video ( or images below)
- Use a USB C charger, or use the USB C adapter (gold color) and the micro USB cable that you plug into a USB charger. It is important to use a charger plugged in the main, not a battery. This should reactivate the lock.
- Let it charge for 30’ before unplugging.
- As you can remove the Power Bank, you may wonder how to remove the tiny battery of the lock? Actually it is so little than it can stay in the suitcase. Also it is not visible by the security scanner.

Simply undo the zipper that goes around the lower section of the suitcase; Pull the telescopic handle to its maximum.
Expand your Xtend® by holding the telescopic handle with one hand, then with the other hand pull the top handle.

Your Xtend® has been designed in accordance to civil aviation regulation FAA. The electronic lock is normally dormant and turns on as you approach a finger to save battery life. You can safely open your luggage during a flight, as long as the signal “fasten your seatbelt” is not lit.
