The Ion Belt is a 3000mAh battery pack that you can wear around your waist
One crafty engineer had the idea of blending a battery pack into an item that you're not likely to forget at home: your belt. Enter the Ion Belt, an accessory that, as the name suggests, is part belt, part external battery pack. The Ion Belt integrates a 3000mAh battery, which should be enough to provide a full charge for most smartphones.
The belt itself is made out of black hand-finished leather and comes with polished buckles, which makes it generic enough to fit with most outfits. On the other hand, you'll notice that this isn's a slim belt that you're likely to wear at a fancy dinner party.
The inventor behind the Ion Belt says that you don't have to worry about the battery pack getting damaged and literally lighting your pants on fire, as a patented technology ensures that the Li-Ion battery modules are properly isolated from the outside world.
If the KickStarter campaign turns out to be successful, the Ion Belt will be priced at $139, considerably pricier than any standard battery pack currently out there. At the time this article was published, the Ion Belt project had raised $28,360 out of its $50,000 goal with 39 days to go.
So, what do you guys think about the Ion Belt?
