    ThinkGeek Mr. Fusion Car Charger

    I didn't see this posted anywhere else...

    https://www.ebgames.ca/Toys-Collectibles/Games/728304

    It's a Mr. Fusion car charger. Sort of like the flux capacitor one. USB power ports from your 12v cigar lighter receptacle. Releasing November 18th, 2017.

    The website link is to a video game store chain here called EB Games. I did not see this product on the ThinkGeek website directly though. One of the people working at EB Games said their parent company bought a stake in ThinkGeek so much of their stuff for sale you can see in person at this video game store chain.

    Now we just need a cupholder solution to hold it in the DeLorean!

    Very Cool. We have a Think Geek store in our local mall, so I'll ask about this next time I'm there, if not mail order works as well. Thanks for sharing.

    EB Games must be related to Gamestop, as GameStop bought ThinkGeek about a year or so (maybe two?) ago.

    How do you figure? It's 7 inches tall including the black base that sits in the cup holder. It's a min half the size.

    From a design standpoint it looks like they purchased a diamond select 1:1 Mr. Fusion, copied it and scaled it down.

    Diamond Select Fusion for reference:



    Think Geek version:


    Obviously they made some changes to the base to fit inside a cup holder, and the USB ports on the back side of the Krups grinder, but other than that it looks pretty accurate.

    Also, it looks like the scale is 1:3 for anyone interested.

    I was being sarcastic/exaggerating, but it is ridiculously large.
