With the R2-D2 USB Car Charger There’s No Need to Go to The Tosche Station

For the Star Wars non-believers, we’ll mention that the Tosche Station was a power and distribution station located outside the town of Anchorhead on Tatooine. It was the power source of some surrounding cities, via dozens of sturdy underground cables. It also stocked useful supplies such as power converters.

Sure, the station also provided services similar to auto shop places, as in vehicle repairs and other things like that. We may not be able to fly like Luke Skywalker, and we’re still some years away from testing the hoverbike, but that doesn’t mean we can get the small accessories until the moment comes.

When it senses the device is running out of power, the R2-D2 charge sitting your car’s cup holder will whistle sadly. Make him bloop and bleep happily again by letting him use your vehicle’s power to recharge your devices. You’ll get 2.1 Amps through each of his USB charging ports, which translates into enough power to fill up two tablets or smartphones or anything else that charges that way for that matter.

Accuracy is critical, which is why R2-D2’s dome rotates and lights up; he also can whistle and beep. The Star Wars gizmo also comes with flexible arms that allow you to customize it to fit in the car. Available at Think Geek’s online store, the best part about this scaled Droid is that it will only cost you $40 to get one.

Will the astromech robot support the driver as it does in the movies with Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi? Well, if you consider your phone or tablet as the weapon of the 21st century then the answer is yes.
