R2-D2 USB Car Charger – the little robot’s got your back, Jack


These pesky robots get everywhere and we’re just about fed up with all their messing around. Not content with threatening world peace, harvesting human bodies for batteries and trying to exterminate John Connor, the things are now wheedling their way into our lives as phone chargers.

Sucks. This R2-D2 USB Charger is a perfect example of robot love gone one step too far. Sure it’s cute to have a little buddy whistling and blooping at you when your phone’s out of juice, but you know, it’s just a hunk of metal.


The thing plugs into your cigar socket in the car, and features two USB ports which are meaty enough at 2.1 amps to charge your tablets as well as phones. OK, so it will charge just about any USB device out there, but even so…this is definitely not the Droid you are looking for. Priced at $49.99. Oh yeah, watch the funny video too.
