Charge on the road with the R2D2 USB Car Charger
Never use your cars’ cup holder? Or are you bored of traveling to work all by yourself? Then maybe you should give this R2D2 USB Car Charger a go! It will instantly fit almost all vehicles, and if not you can adapt the arms for adjustments. Connect it to your cigarette lighter power source and charge up to two smartphones or tablets (or any other USB connected devise) at the same time.
This charger measures a total length of 5.5 inches. It’s 3.5 inches at it’s widest and to help a perfect fit in your cup holder the bottom measures 2 inches in width. A 36 inches charging cable is included but you will need to have the USB cables for your products yourself (which often come with any smartphone, tablet or digital camera for example). Two USB ports are integrated which each will give you 2.1 Amps, so like we mentioned before you can in fact charge two items simultaneously. Connect R2 to your cigarette adapter and he will whistle or even bleep happily as soon as he gets to charge. The integrated light will switch between blue and red to keep you updated about his charging progress. But don’t worry to keep an eye on this indicator light, he’ll rotate his head too when his charge is complete.
A pretty cool gadget for those who spend quite some time in their cars. ThinkGeek sells it for $39.99 but free shipping only applies to orders from $75.00. Still a very reasonable price considering the fact that Amazon sells one for $73.00! We couldn’t find it any cheaper online so most probably you want to check out ThinkGeek’s website to discover whether this product is in stock and how much shipping costs you will have to pay.
