The Belt Buckle That Can Charge Your Phone

Data from The Goonies was always ready with a good belt-mounted gadget. Now you can own one, too.

The XOO Phone-Charging Belt has a 2100 mAh Lithium Ceramic Polymer battery concealed in its buckle, enabling you to give your phone a boost wherever you go. Assuming you go there with your trousers on, of course.

The product comes in a choice of two styles. The Classic XOO retails at £80, and comes with a zinc buckle and a choice of brown or black leather straps, while another more stylish option has been developed in conjunction with London fashion house Casely-Hayford, priced £100.

Sadly, neither option has a retractable boxing glove that can smack assailants in the face. But we expect they'll add one of those soon.
