Introducing a Back to the Future-Inspired Wall Charger
For all you shoppers in search of the perfect nerdy stocking stuffer: look no further. As DesignTAXI reports, online novelty retailer ThinkGeek has created an officially licensed Back to the Future-inspired wall charger shaped like the flux capacitor from Dr. Emmett Brown’s time traveling DeLorean.
For the uninitiated, the flux capacitor is the key device that allows the car to journey across different eras. It’s crafted from three flashing tubes, and shaped like an inverted “Y.” True to the films, ThinkGeek’s charger— which can power two devices via USB cord—begins flashing once your phone hits 88 percent juice.
The charger costs $25 and is available for purchase online. And if you want to turn your car into a make-believe time machine, ThinkGeek is also selling the same design in USB car charger form. (It’s currently out of stock, so we’d go with the wall charger if you’re looking to get your Christmas shopping done early.)
