it's the modern man's utility belt.

Nobody likes running out of phone battery, and the idea of your trousers falling down in public is an even less desirable prospect.

That’s what gave the makers of the ION Belt the crafty idea of integrating a phone charger into an essential item of clothing that you’ll never leave the house without.

The ION belt looks and feels like a regular belt, made from hand-finished black leather with a standard metal buckle. But inside, it’s packing a whopping 3000 mAh of charging power – enough for one-and-a-half iPhone 6 charges.

There’s a tiny LED battery indicator on the belt that activates when you press the power button to show the belt’s charging status.

You don’t just have to stick to charging your phone either. You can plug in devices like your tablet and GoPro too for some shifty charging when you’re caught short.
