External batteries are often seen as a necessary burden, given their unwieldy size and the awkwardness of having your phone plugged in and tied down while simultaneously trying to use it with any semblance of normalcy. Cue the XOO Belt by Nifty, a true example of invisible design which combines minimalist aesthetics with the latest innovations in flexible battery technology to produce a belt that packs 2,100mAh of juice into its length, as well as an additional 800mAh in the buckle. Chargeable via USB, the premium tanned leather belt incorporates a magnetic cable that snaps away when not in use, two charging ports, as well as a ratchet system that allows adjustments of a quarter of an inch. Having already raised $30,000 of its $50,000 USD goal, head over to the product’s Indiegogo page before early bird supplies run out.
