Just Shut Up And Take My Money: R2D2 USB Car Charger

Shame is a funny thing.  When you embrace the source of shame, it becomes a newfound source of identity.  Rather than something to hide from the world, it becomes a point of pride.  Why the heck am I telling you this?  Because you need to stop hiding your Star Wars toys in the closet and bring them out for the world to see.  Carry them to lunch, bring them to work, and, heck, get this R2D2 USB Car Charger then put it in your car.  Liberate yourself with the force!

I kid, I kid.  We both know you're a shameless Star Wars geek.  That's why we both know you're replacing whatever perfectly good car charger you're using with this one, which lets the little repair droid give your phones and tablets the much-needed juice they crave.

The R2D2 USB Car Charger measures 5.5 x 3.5 inches (h x w), with a 2-inch diameter at the bottom so it can fit snugly into your car's cupholder.  Plug it to the cigarette lighter adapter and you've got yourself a pair of USB charging ports ready to supply enough power to charge two tablets simultaneously.  This is officially-licensed Star Wars merch, so there's a good amount of authentic R2D2 detail, complete with flexible arms, a rotating dome, and a LED indicator inside R2's front radar eye lens.  Press the button in the center and the robot will animate, rotating its head, lighting up, whistling, and beeping because that's what robots from the 1970s are supposed to do.

Thinkgeek has the R2D2 USB Car Charger available now, priced at $49.99.
