Tech knickknack website ThinkGeek has reintroduced the Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger, a blast from the past for fans of the Back to the Future movies. The device plugs into a traditional 12V power adapter - i.e. cigarette lighter - and is able to charge a smartphone and tablet simultaneously.

Originally an April Fool's product earlier in the year, the device was popular enough that ThinkGeek decided to bring it back. The Flux Capacitor USB car charger is available for $24.99.

 

"We wanted to create something that would not only work, but give people the chance to enjoy a Flux Capacitor in the real-world," said Ty Liotta, GeekLabs' Chief Mad Scientist, in a press statement.
