Nifty reinvents the original wearable, by making your belt – known for keeping your trousers from falling to the ground – a charging station for your smartphone. Well, you could charge just about anything that’s powered by USB, but it’s probably a good idea if whatever gadget you’re using up actually fits your pocket. The belt itself is obviously charged via USB, there are no loose batteries or anything in this thing.
Not all belts will work with every outfit, so Nifty is making several styles for you to order when you’re backing the project. But you don’t care about that, you want to know how much juice the XOO belt can give your oh so important gadgets. Well, it’s pretty impressive actually, and all without making a bulky belt full of taped-together batteries.
We’ve hidden six overlapping layers of cutting-edge flexible battery within each belt to give a base power of 1,300mAh of charge. Add this to the 800mAh in each buckle—for a total of 2,100mAh—and you’ve enough to fully charge an iPhone 6 with some left over. Works with iOS, Android and Windows devices.
Each buckle contains 2 charging points—to transfer charge in and out of the belt—along with 2x400mAh lithium-ion batteries. We opted to use a ratchet mechanism to better secure your belt along with zinc buckles for solid wear and a beautiful finish.
There are various XOO belts to choose from in the perks, and if you want to hang back, you can pay for a 10% voucher. But seriously, you want one of these belts, right?
