by Caitlyn - on July 24, 2014

While it may be more commonly seen in re-enactments, movies, and with LARPers, there’s a use for chainmail that you may not have expected.

R2-D9 USB Car Charger juices up your gadgets en route

by Edwin - on July 24, 2014

r2-d9We have seen the R2-D2 USB Car Charger listed right at the top in our list of 12 of the coolest Star Wars gadgets, so where does that leave the $39.99 R2-D9 USB Car Charger? Well, this is a unique release considering how it happens to be a 2014 ThinkGeek Con exclusive, and it will only go on sale whenever ThinkGeek happens to be at a convention, making it all the more desirable if you are a hard core Star Wars fan.

The R2-D9 USB Car Charger will sport a couple of USB charging ports, where each of them will be able to offer 2.1 Amps of juice – which is more than adequate to handle a couple of tablets at once. I suppose when it comes to the versatility of R2 astromech droids, there is very little that they are unable to do. In fact, this is an officially licensed Star Wars merchandise, which means you can proudly say that you do not have any kind of bootleg products or cheap ripoffs. Not only that, R2-D9′s dome is not static as it is capable of rotating and lighting up, as he whistles and beeps whenever power is connected, and also does the same as your device begins to get its battery charged. If you want him to animate on purpose, just press the center button that turns power to the ports on, and this little droid is good to go. The blue/red LED inside the front radar eye lens will show off the current USB port power status.

Cordless Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller ushers Mickey out of the picture

by Edwin - on July 24, 2014

rodent-repellerRodents can be quite a nuisance regardless of where it resides, not to mention them being disease carriers. However, getting rid of them can be extremely challenging, as they have more or less honed the skills of survival over so many years in existence. Mouse traps are not exactly the best way to get rid of them, too, except for the dumber ones out there which results in the rest of the pack ending up smarter. The $34.95 Cordless Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller might prove to be an option that is worth checking out though.

This cordless device can be placed just about anywhere whether at home or in a garage in order to deter rodents using an ultrasonic frequency that remains inaudible to humans. Since it does not make use of toxic poisons or treacherous traps, this particularly compact repeller will be able to drive away both mice and rats as it emits 88-decibel tones that are harsh and unwelcoming to rodents. Being different from other similar devices that emit only a single frequency that rodents can adjust to eventually, the Cordless Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller will vary its wail between 25 kHz and 32 kHz, making sure that critters will not be able to adapt to the sound. Other specifications include a LED power indicator, an audible test button, and hardware for wall mounting, all powered by a trio of AA batteries.
