The ThermalStrike Heated Luggage makes sure no bed bugs travel in your suitcase

ThermalStrike Heated Luggage

It’s happened to all of us at least once. You think you’re going to stay in a nice hotel, and it turns out all the photos are over 30 years old, and it’s not quite the grand place it once was. There are cracks in the walls, the caulking needs to be redone, and worst of all, there are bugs. It’s not the ones you can easily see that you should worry about either.

Tiny bugs have a habit of making a home in places we don’t want them and settling down to make a family. Of course, if you pick up these little insects on your travels and they come home with you, the problem at the hotel will quickly become yours as well. If you don’t want bed bugs catching a ride home with you, then you can use the ThermalStrike Heated Luggage. This is a hard shell polycarbonate case that was designed to kill bed bugs in all stages of life, including their eggs.

This is TSA and FAA compliant luggage that has 360 degree rotational wheels, which means getting through an airport will be a breeze. Until you’ve had a piece of luggage with wheels that can spin like that, you don’t realize how annoying it is to walk around with a hulking suitcase on two wheels. To use the heating aspect of this luggage, plug in the timer, and set it to 2, 4, or 8 hours, and let it run while you sleep. If you’re a little overly cautious, you’ll want to run it again whenever you get home, just to be on the safe side. Should you be in need of a way to annihilate bed bugs while traveling, this will cost you $199.
