These jeans charge your phone while it's in your pocket

When it comes to your smartphone, we know. You can't live without it. (How did we ever?)

There's probably no worse feeling these days than discovering that it's dead. The battery died, and you're nowhere near a plug, or you just didn't want to lug around your charger.

If you don't mind sacrificing some fashion sense, and some money, there's another option. It's a pair of jeans from Joe's Jeans.

As you can guess, its #Hello jeans aren't ordinary jeans. They look nice, like a regular pair of high-quality, skinny leg jeans.

Except, when your phone is dead, there's a slot just above the back pocket with a battery pack in it. Take your dead phone and stick it in your back pocket. Attach a little wire from the battery pack into it until it's charged and, mercifully, you're reconnected with the wireless world.

There are a couple of drawbacks to #Hello jeans. The battery pack is housed in an unsightly slot; it looks like a pocket turned to a 90-degree angle, with something in it. Then there's the price.

The jeans cost about $189, with the battery thrown in for free. If you just need the battery pack, that'll be $49.
