The Ion Belt is a sleek and stylish device for keeping your trousers up and it will also work as a way of charging your smartphone on the go!
Smartphones are amazing devices but their battery life leaves a lot to be desired. Worry not though, your belt has that covered!
Yes you read that correctly - the Ion Belt is a new product looking for funding on Kickstarter which is a fully functional and rather slick and sleek device which holds up your trousers, and it also includes a battery for charging your phone on the go!
Here's the backer video:
There's a USB port in the buckle, and inside is a 3000 mAh rechargeable cell. Just plug in a cable (any one will do) and press the button and your device will start charging.
Now let's be honest, it's a bit bulkier than a normal belt, but it does have a pretty large battery included. And it's easy to charge the belt itself, though we wouldn't recommend doing it through a computer, that will just take forever. The Kickstarter is looking for a modest sum of $50,000, and with 16 days to go it's well on the way to that target.
The video is pretty awkward too...
Anyway, you too can own one of these Ion Belts for just $89 (+ tax and shipping) and $4999 will get you a special leather edition belt with a 14-carat gold buckle.
