KFC's new take-out box can charge your phone

Want to enjoy some fried chicken and get your smartphone charged along with it? That probably just took a chunk from your smartphone battery -- but don't worry dudes, KFC's got your back with a device charger in your take-out box. Just don't try to plug it in while you're fingers-deep in greasy chicken.

KFC has you covered with its 5-in-1 meal box called Watt a Box. Created in collaboration with its Mumbai-based digital agency, Blink Digital, the limited edition Watt a Box can only be won through contests held at select stores in Delhi and Mumbai, or through an online contest on KFC India’s Facebook page.

Sadly, the promotion is currently only available in Delhi and Mumbai, India. But reports say that the charger is pretty terrible, netting BGR's writer 17 percent phone life over half an hour until the box's battery was fully drained. When they plugged it in to refresh it, they only got 7 percent. It's safe to say we're not missing much.

The power bank claims to have a 6,100mAh battery but the claims fell short during our brief test. 
The box comes with magnetic flaps and contains your usual meal but has a power bank integrated on its side. The box also comes with micro-USB and Lightning cables to charge your iPhone or Android smartphones. The best thing is the power bank is removable, so you can carry it along.

The "Watt A Box" charger came out of a partnership with the Mumbai-based digital agency Blink Digital, so we're unlikely to see it come to American shores anyway. Add it to the list of weird regionally-released promotional items, like Pizza Hut's movie projector box in Hong Kong or KFC's paper-thin bluetooth keyboard in Germany. Or KFC's chicken-flavored nail polish, also in Hong Kong. Or its fried chicken "accessories" in Japan. Y'know what? Maybe it's a good thing that we've kept our fried chicken experience pure.
