Nifty's XOO Belt

Nifty, a technology start-up based in the United Kingdom, is teaming up with clothing designers Casely-Hayford to craft a fashionable belt that will double as a mobile charger.

The XOO Belt is made with full-grain Italian leather and will come in multiple styles. Nifty's crowdfunding project on Indiegogo has reached nearly 80 percent of its $39,096 funding goal.

"It looks, feels and weighs about the same as a really nice belt … but comes with a mighty 2,100 milliampere-hours of hidden charge and can charge pretty much any device," the creators said. Each buckle contains two charging points.
