In this week's edition of "Things You Didn't Know You Needed," KFC has launched a meal box that will charge your phone while you eat.
KFC India's brand new "Watt A Box" offers a boost in energy for both you and your device, with a built-in power bank and USB cables for charging. Certain customers at select KFC locations in Mumbai and Delhi will receive the limited-edition meal box.
"With the launch of Watt A Box, we have gone a step ahead and also introduced an element of utility into the box," KFC India's Chief Marketing Officer, Lluis Ruiz Ribot, told the Times of India. "Each one of us spends a considerable time on our smartphones daily, and the phone battery going dead is almost like a nightmare!"
Before you get too excited, BGR's tests show an iPhone 5s only gained 17 percent battery after charging on the Watt A Box for half an hour. And once the power bank is drained, that's all she wrote, folks. Fully recharging the power bank yielded just 7 percent more phone charge.
While we've all experienced the creeping dread that accompanies a dwindling phone battery, perhaps we should adjust to the FOMO and eat our chicken in peace. No? OK, fast food battery box it is.
