May the force be with you. This iconic line can become even more true with this delightful car charger that is shaped like none other than beloved Star Wars character R2D2. It’s the R2-D2 USB Car Charger, and without having to go to Tosche Station, you will get to have this incredibly well made and useful device with you to charge your smart phone or any other USB compatible device. It provides 2.1 amps of energy so you can charge two tablets with it (even simultaneously if you’re short on time and need that done.)
Fitting in your car’s cupholder (or at least most cupholders), it can plug into a cigarette lighter adapter to take energy from your car, which can also be used to transfer energy to your USB-compatible devices. It makes cute sounds too as its used. It has a rotating head with a light up eye so it even lets you rotate him around a bit (always be gentle with these things.)
It’s officially licensed merchandise, so you won’t have to worry about Disney coming after those who sell it to you. You will need the USB cable but those aren’t expensive. Better yet, all the cute R2D2 beeps and boops you remember from Star Wars can come back to you in no time by pressing the center button on his chest. The power needs to be connected and this will work when charging. There is a blue/red light around each USB port to indicate its status regarding whether or not it can offer power to devices plugged into it.
The dimensions of ol’ R2D2 are 5.5 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide, 2 inch diameter and a 36 inch long cable. The cigarette holder needs to be a 12V one to fit the adapter. You’ll have a blast keeping the Star Wars universe close to you, and help charge your electronic USB devices too, not to mention bragging rights to your less cool buddies!
