Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger, DeLorean Not Included ($24.99)

Great Scott! It's not quite the same as the time-travel gizmo from Back to the Future, but this port can charge two iPhones at once and that beautiful Flux Capacitor light sequence we all know and love is front and center. As a bonus, the flexible arm pivots up and down so you can better customize it to best fit your vehicle's power port placement.

The Chemist's Cocktail Kit includes a graduated Erlenmeyer flask decanter, six graduated test tubes, a glass stirring rod, stainless steel shaker with strainer and a powder-coated steel rack. Why?
