No matter how convenient the iPhone becomes, nostalgia for the oversized Macintosh computers of the past will never die. According to Gizmodo, the latest reincarnation of the vintage gadget is a pint-sized charging stand for your smartphone.

To set your iPhone 6 or 7 back 30 years or so, just turn it on its side and slip it into the silicone sleeve. The accessory is nothing more than an extra piece of hardware—any old-school sounds or graphics must be provided on your own.

iPhone users can purchase the stand in white or black for about $37 (€35) from elago. And for the owners who can’t bear to bring their device back to present-day once they’re done charging it, this vintage-inspired Apple phone case may be of interest.
