ThinkGeek has traveled back in time to April 1, 2014 for the inspiration to build its next GeekLabs creation, the Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger.
Styled after the iconic Flux Capacitor from the movie Back to the Future, ThinkGeek’s Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger is a two-port USB hub that plugs into your car’s existing 12V vehicle power adapter (cigarette lighter). The Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger is capable of charging both a smart phone and tablet at the same time from the dedicated ports located on its side.
The special-effects are true to the original movie prop. ThinkGeek’s Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger lights up and “fluxes” just as it did in the movie’s iconic DeLorean.
“We wanted to create something that would not only work, but give people the chance to enjoy a Flux Capacitor in the real world,” states Ty Liotta, Chief Mad Scientist of GeekLabs told Drox Tech. When asked if he’s tried to hit 88mph while operating the device, Liotta had no comment.
The Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger was originally an April Fool’s product during this year’s celebration of the holiday. Available now at ThinkGeek.com, the device retails for $24.99.
