We don’t normally cover this sort of thing, but this is too cool not to share. The guys at ThinkGeek have stock back up on their Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger! YES you can own a Flux Capacitor and time travel… well in your own imagination, at least you can charge your phone etc in style. What once was an Think Geek’s April Fools joke has now turned into reality by Think Geek. Stock levels fly out quicker then 88 MPH.
“GREAT SCOTT!! Marty has travelled back in time and taken the Flux Capacitor with him. We’re not exactly sure where, so Doc Brown has authorized us to make these smaller Flux Capacitors to you so we can crowd-search time for Marty. Each one is capable of returning to a specific point in time, so you can join the search. Just plug it into your car’s 12V vehicle power adapter (cigarette lighter) and turn it on. 88mph and . . . ok, don’t go that fast. That would be bad, because the Flux Capacitor Car Charger won’t really take you through time – but it will charge all your USB-powered goodies.”
Each Flux Capacitor Car Charger has two USB ports, each capable of charging almost any USB powered device (1 x 1A and 1 x 2.1A). But it also has that beautiful Flux Capacitor light sequence we all know and love. Even traffic jams (either terrestrial or aerial (if your car is powered by Mr. Fusion)) won’t bother you because your device will be charging and the Flux Capacitor Car Charger‘s pulse will make you feel more important than anyone else. It’s time to write your name in your underwear, Calvin, and get yourself a Flux Capacitor Car Charger in the present (so you can enjoy it in the future).

While we are on the Back To The Future subject and you don’t have a car. Think Geek also has a Flux Capacitor Wristwatch which is also a ThinkGeek creation & exclusive!
One day, we were all standing on toilets here at ThinkGeek (hanging a whole bunch of clocks), and we all simultaneously fell off and hit our heads on sinks. It was a very strange day, to say the least, but it was also the day we thought of making this Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch. But enough small talk, there’s work to be done. Using a Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch, we’ve got to get you back… to the present!
Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats). At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date. But the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch just doesn’t tell the time – with a press of the middle button, you can also activate “Time Travel” mode, where the Flux Capacitor will flux and the time circuit will display a random date. Will you travel to said date if you run 88mph? Actually, we’re not sure. If you do, however, manage to do that, please send us a postcard.
