Smart bag - hand luggage or checked-in luggage? 

Both options are allowed, provided you remove the batteries from the smart bag. Pack the batteries separately and secure them properly (to avoid short circuits). The primary battery and a maximum of two spare batteries must be carried in the cabin (in hand luggage).
