These Half-Life power banks let you charge your phone like Gordon Freeman

It looks like Half-Life fans will soon get a chance to reconnect with the games, in a manner of speaking. No, sadly there’s no news of a Half-Life 3 right now, but for fans of the series something pretty exciting is in the works – there’s a crowdfunding campaign to make power banks in the iconic style of the Half-Life HEV Charger.

An “HEV Charge Monitor and Power Bank” funding campaign launched on IndieGoGo by electrical engineer András Gajdács and two other team members aims to bring the orange version of the wall-mounted devices “to your home or backpack” as little personal chargers – one portable and the other wall-connected. Best of all, they’ll come with “various sound and visual effects.”

The first proposal, the HEV Charge Monitor, is a lower-budget option, which needs to be connected to both a wall power source and your phone. It’ll monitor and display the charging of your device and will feature a menu system, letting you assign effects to some events. It’ll cost you £24 (around $29.60). The second, the HEV Power Bank, will be a standalone item ready for charging on the go, with faster charging and even more options for adding effects to events. It’ll cost £40 (around $49.30).
