The Pelican Air range of cases has been announced recently. Apparently, they boast all of the strength we’ve come to expect from Pelican while reducing the weight by up to 40% – winner. We had a chance to catch up with Pelican at NAB 2016 in Las Vegas and discuss the technology behind their lightweight and durable products.
Pelican Air – lightweight and convenient solutions
It looks as though Pelican are set to continue innovating their lightweight case technology and, as consumers, we’re going to continue to benefit from their commitment to reducing the effect gravity has on our poor legs. With the Pelican Air range and whatever comes next, we may finally see a time where every day isn’t legs day.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned about batteries in planes before, but this incident proves that batteries can pose a real danger on airplanes:
The news was only just published by ABC Australia, but on April 26 this year, there was a fire in the cargo hold of a plane that was about to take off from Melbourne airport to Nadi (Fiji). Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) investigated and found that the smoke came from some kind of Pelicase type suitcase which contained lithium-polymer batteries for a camera drone.
