New Wave Toys. A relatively new company started in 2016, which is dedicated to bringing to the modern-day, a wonderful and revolutionary product line of remembering our pasts while enjoying them in the present. RepliTronics is a collection of products that pay homage to many classic 80s tech and merchandise. We’re talking about USB Charge machines made to look exactly like an old-school coin machine—which we’ll be covering here in the article, a power bank that looks like the 70s to 80s walkman cassette player, much like the one Marty McFly has in Back to the Future. They even have this new product out that is basically the smallest Bluetooth speaker we’ve seen ever that looks exactly like a boombox. It is the macro version of their mini version of the RC-M90 BLASTER Stereo from back in the day! This is the original boombox and in its actual size, was heavy and huge!
Well, New Wave Toys has come up with a way that we can enjoy, veterans and new fans alike, the past times of our gaming lives. Enter the USB Charge Machine made to look like an old-school arcade coin machine. This item is a product of the gaming gods with great attention to detail that plucks the nostalgia strings of our childhood. It being a USB charge station at the same time, just brings tears of joy to our eyes.
What’s in the Box?
Upon opening the USB charge machine, you will be greeted with an amazing replica product that will immediately take you back into the past. The charge machine is fully functional with some added features that aren’t functional but for aesthetic purposes which are accurately reproduced. The charge machine is designed with sixth-scale details and is about 8.5 inches tall. This is a perfect size for the charge machine as it can fit comfortably anywhere at home and in the office. The USB charge machine has five USB-A 2.0 ports with one USB-A 3.0 quick-charge port, for a total of 6 USB ports to charge up to 6 devices at a time. The charge machine is made with premium materials including actual wood, metal, plastic, and rubber.
To further the awesomeness of the attention to detail, the charge machine comes with an “Out of Service” light indicator that can be turned on and off by pressing a button on the back of the machine which is really cool. Even cooler, the charge machine comes with four little replica coins that you can place in the coin tray of the machine, adding that extra realism to something small but so great. You also get some stickers to place on the machine for further authenticism which are the Insert Bill and Do Not Fold Bill stickers that you always saw on the coin machines from the old-school arcades.
Last, the charge machine comes with a 10’ power cord to plug into the wall, as well as, having its own power switch to turn the machine on and off and is located in the back. The USB charge machine has surge protection, over/even charging protection, overheating protection, and short circuit protection as well. New Wave Toys made sure they were taking care of their customers, making sure they won’t come into any problems along the way.
Other than that, folks, there is nothing else to really report here other than it works, it's great, and we can’t get enough of the nostalgia we feel when looking at and using this machine. The USB Charge Machine is $69.99 at regular price but it is on sale right now at $49.99 if you head over to the New Wave Toys website, located, here. New Wave Toys has many more products that pay homage to the retro gaming era, the era of greatness, in our opinion, and you can check out more of their awesome products, here.
