flux capacitorFor anyone who has seen the Back To The Future series of movies, you’re probably very familiar with DeLorean, the time traveling machine that is used in their adventures. Now one of the key components of the machine is its flux capacitor that according to Doc Brown, is what makes everything work.

Now if you’re a fan of the movie and you wouldn’t mind a flux capacitor of your own, you’re in luck because the folks at ThinkGeek have made it a reality! Well to be more specific, they have managed to create something that looks like the flux capacitor, minus the time traveling of course.

Basically it’s device that you can plug into your car’s cigarette lighter slot. It will contain two USB ports that will allow you to plug in USB cables to charge your phone while you drive. However if there is one cool feature about it, it’s that the lights in the flux capacitor actually light up, kind of like in the movie, but once again there will not be any time traveling involved, unfortunately.

The flux capacitor charger was actually unveiled earlier this year by ThinkGeek as an April Fool’s joke, but we guess the demand was there, at least enough for them to justify making it into reality. If you’d like to get your hands on it, you will be able to do so at ThinkGeek’s website where it will be priced at $24.99 and is expected to start shipping out in September.
