I’ve seen lots of chargers that are small enough to slip into a pocket, but this is the first wearable one I’ve seen. The Volt Buckle is seeking funding as an Indiegogo project. If they can receive pledges of $60,000 by August 13, they will produce a belt buckle that will also serve as a charging dock for smartphones. The buckle will pop off the belt to plug into the wall and serve as a dock to hold the phone. A charging cable will be stored behind the belt, so you’ll have nothing to carry in your pockets. An early-bird pledge of $50 gets you one aluminum Volt charger and a belt; the pledge will change to $60 after the early bird rewards have been claimed.
