KFC’s New Meal Box Will Actually Charge Your Phone While You’re Eating

KFC has been very experimental in 2016. From tweeting a NSFW ad that obviously conceptualized a dude getting a hand job on a couch, to developing a line of edible nail polish that actually tasted like chicken, KFC’s been bringing the heat. With that said, KFC’s newest item is even more outside the box.

Well, actually, it is the box.

Aptly titled, Watt-A-Box, KFC India’s newest limited edition item is a 5-in-1 box featuring a chicken sandwich, a few chicken strips, a side, a beverage — and a phone charger. Yes, a phone charger.

The box has a USB port on the side and it supports both Android and iPhone smartphones, however, its reliability has already been questioned in various reports, stating that charger can’t hold a true charge.

 

Yum! Brands, KFC’s parent company, probably picked up the fact that no one talks to each other while having a meal together anymore.

That’s so 2015.

So in order to avoid any awkward silences or just to make sure KFC guests now have the opportunity to keep Snapchatting, or posting their KFC meals to Instagram. At least that was KFC’s plan.

Apparently, battery loss is a huge issue in the Indian community.
