In case you haven’t been feeling like you’ve travelled back in time to the ’90s with this whole Pokémon Go phenomenon, this portable phone charger will make you think otherwise. Atilium’s retro-inspired device carries up to 4400mAh of power to charger your iOS and Android devices from morning to night. But wait, that’s not the best part – the design is. The super cool device acts as a fashion statement, as it can be attached to your belt and it looks and acts like a sleek pager as well! Users can view “messages” with a few basic ’90s inspired preset codes such as:

143 – I love you ❤️

5:46 – Biggie! “Who is this pagin’ me at 5:46 in the morning”

411 – Give me the info!

07734 – Hello

Ugh, nostalgia. With a backlit LCD screen, you can view the messages along with the time (set by your locality) and with a tap of a button, you can view the percentage of battery available. Located at the bottom of the Atilium is a micro USB port (to charge the unit) and a USB port (to plug respective charging cords to power up). Sound too good to be true? Well with your assistance it won’t be. Atilium is asking for pledges to help make this super cool design a reality. Check out the below video and the above gallery to see the Atilium in action. Fingers crossed this retro toy hits the shelves soon.
