The world’s largest fried chicken chain has come up with a wacky new idea that will fill your stomach as well as your iPhone.

As part of a promotion in India, KFC has introduced a new limited edition “Watt A Box” that packs all the greasy finger-lickin’ chicken you could want, along with with a USB port and portable battery that eaters can use to recharge their iPhones with while grubbing.

Check it out:

Watt A Box packs a 6,100mAh rechargeable battery and a Lightning USB cable. There’s also a mini-USB port for Android users, and it appears that the battery can be removed and reused — if not, WOW, what a waste!

Unfortunately, it’s currently only available at a couple of locations in Delhi and Mumbai as part of a weeklong promotion through Facebook. No word on if the box will ever make its way to the U.S., but I’m not sure I’d be willing to eat at KFC just to get one anyway.
