A Los Angeles-based startup called ‘RockyBelt’ is looking to build a portable power bank that you wear.
Dubbed the “world’s first wearable modular power bank” – RockyBelt is essentially a belt that boasts LED headlights, GPS tracking, Bluetooth speakers, drink holder, AC outlet, and a power bank.
Though it looks a bit strange at first, the makers describe the RockyBelt as a less cumbersome, hands-free backpack.
The star of the show is the rechargeable battery that’ll boost your phone – or just about anything else. Compact and waterproof, the 28,000mAh power bank features cables for Type-C, Micro USB, and iPhone devices – all neatly tucked away within the belt.
The built-in Bluetooth speakers are designed to take calls, as well as play clear, high-quality tunes from Apple Music, Spotify, and other platforms. What’s more, by adding the pre-amp module, the belt becomes the perfect tool for guitarists looking to rock out on the go.
Other cool features include the built-in LED flashlights and the ultrasonic insect repellent. The flashlights offer a safe, hands-free way to keep your surroundings lit, while the high-tech insect repellent clears away mosquitoes by sending out high-frequency ultrasonic blasts at the press of a button.
In addition, the RockyBelt can be outfitted with a number of bonus modules that include an AC Outlet, Waterproof Pouch, Laser Signal, and GPS.
Early buyers can pick up a RockyBelt for $300 through Indiegogo – additional modules start at $30.
