A new pair of jeans are designed to hold a specially designed battery pack to charge your phone easily … for a price.

High-end LA-based designer Joe’s Jeans just released their new line of #Hello skinny jeans. It features a hidden pocket for a specially designed battery at the side of the hip, and a special pocket for your iPhone right underneath for easy charging.

However, one pair, plus batteries that aren’t included, will cost you. The #Hello jean will come in four different styles, each one costing $189.

You’ll also need to buy a silver battery for $49 made to fit the jean’s pocket, which comes with a cord that only charges iPhones 5 and after. In order to prevent over charging, the company designed the battery will only charge your phone from 70-85%.
