Gondor calls... and Rohan will answer!
I thought it was maybe a box that could generate ~140 degrees to keep your Famous Bowl warm until you got it home. That sounded like an accident waiting to happen.
That said, I got curious and discovered that such a thing actually exists, and now I want one:
I have no actual use for one; my beloved Ninja Cooking System does everything this one does, except I can't hug it. Ninja is my kitchen wire mom.
5 for evil.
will generate massive quantities of toxic chemical waste improperly thrown into landfills (on top of the waste they're feeding to people)
There's four trillion watts of power in that chicken and soda reactor, why add a battery?
I'm sorry, I'm just realizing you've been on a crusade to get an answer to that. I am dumb and oblivious.
This is the video I meat.
the video you meat? so meta...
When think KFC, I think mobility.

That's the worst thing that ever happened to Kentucky Fried Chicken, trying to turn it into a fast-food joint.
When I was a kid, we went to the Colonel's to get a big family meal to sit down and eat at home or take on a picnic. If you decided to have your order as dine-in, the restaurants had big tables and comfortable chairs. None of their food was intended to be crammed down your gullet as you drove to work.
I don't know. I guess they did what they had to in order to stay in business.
I am neutral towards KFC. I don't think I've ever eaten there voluntarily, but the few times I've had their chicken, the experience was adequate.

Modern KFC is typical mass-produced convenience food, but up until about the mid 1970s, each Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant was sort of its own entity.
The Colonel contracted with restaurant owners to lease his special fryer units and they were only allowed to cook chicken in his "special blend of eleven herbs & spices" which they could, of course, only buy from him. Getting caught using anything other than the Colonel's blend would result in loss of the fryer, which was the real secret behind his chicken. People weren't buying a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise, they were just buying to right to sell the Kentucky Fried Chicken. That's how a lot of existing diners & restaurants came to sell it while retaining their own names.
Restaurant owners could also buy the red & white buckets, boxes, signing and other paraphernalia which they often did because it let people know they sold the Colonel's genuine Kentucky Fried Chicken.
There were suggested side items, but as long as they used the official batter mix and maintained the quality standards, the restaurant owners were free to do whatever. They were even allowed to procure their own chicken. and set their own menus.
I can remember one Kentucky Fried Chicken in Mobile, Alabama offering collard greens, fried green tomatoes, fried okra and even shrimp & oyster gumbo on the menu because they were local favorites.
After the Colonel sold the name and his image everything started becoming centralized and standardized.
Recharge a battery... with a battery!
The last time I was in KFC the dude working behind the counter was having a very public chat with a customer on how local state construction jobs don't ask questions about felonies, they just are concerned with "kid touchers" because they sometimes work near schools and how he was "allegedly" guilty of hitting someone over the head with a baseball bat.
