NEW DELHI: Fast food chain KFC has launched a meal box in India which allows its customers to charge their mobile phones as they tuck into fried chicken.
Dubbed â€œWatt a Boxâ€, the limited edition box comes with a built-in power bank.
The box costs 149 rupees (RM8.90) and includes five food items from its menu.
Only a few lucky customers will be served the â€œWatt a Boxâ€ which is available at selected outlets, The Times of India reported.
Those who participate in an online contest on KFC Indiaâ€™s Facebook page will also get the chance to win the power bank box.
KFC Indiaâ€™s chief marketing officer Lluis Ruiz Ribot said the chain wanted to introduce an â€œelement of utilityâ€ into its meal boxes.
â€œEach one of us spends a considerable time on our smartphones daily, and the phone battery going dead is almost like a nightmare! No longer is that the case, with the â€˜Watt a Box aroundâ€™,â€ he added.
The power bank claimed to have a battery capacity of 6,100mAh – enough to fully charge an iPhone 6 three times. But a check by tech website BGR India found that it did not hold enough battery power to charge even one phone. â€“ The Straits Time/Asia News Network
