Kickstarter: RepliTronics – Charge Machine and Power Bank Replicas

New Wave Toys has returned with a new Kickstarter project, that's looking to raise funds for a pair of new pieces from their RepliTronics line. Both designed to bring some Retro flair to the mundane landscape of charging devices, the RepliTronics USB Charge Machine is a fully-functional, 8.5-inch tall USB charging station built into a miniaturized, vintage arcade Change Machine replica. And the RepliTronics Hotline 16000 mAh Power Bank is a multi-functional, portable power bank built into a replica 1:1 scale, vintage personal cassette player. 

There are a number of various funding levels, with the Charge Machine available at the $45.00 level and the Hotline available at the $35.00 funding level. This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Tuesday, September 10th 2019 at 2:59AM ET.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.
