Star Wars MimoPowerBot has power but is not unlimited

mimopowerbot“Power! Unlimited power!,” screams Emperor Palpatine as he releases a barrage of Force Lightning against the newly dismembered Jedi Master Mace Windu, electrocuting the master of Vaapad style lightsaber technique before sending him flying to his death below, while the newly turned Anakin Skywalker looks on helplessly, knowing that he has but little choice to be a Sith as there is no apparent room for redemption with the Jedi. Well, learning the ways of the Force might provide you with unlimited power, but reality bites as we deal with juicing up our smartphones and other mobile devices all the time. Even if it were to arrive in a Star Wars theme like the $49.99 Star Wars MimoPowerBot, you will still need to charge it from time to time.

The Star Wars MimoPowerBot is a 5,200mAh portable power bank in reality, where each of them will be accompanied by a USB charging cable complete with multiple tips. They might look cute, but they happen to pack a ton of power when you need it most. The multiple tips would comprise of microUSB, miniUSB, Nokia, Apple 30 pin, and Apple Lightning), and it will also boast of a carrying pouch in order to have one stash it all in one place. Charging it up is as easy as plugging into a USB port, and one will be able to select from either Darth Vader or R2-D2 designs. It has a cycle Life of 500 times, so I would say on the average of maxing it out twice a week, you will most probably need a replacement in three years’ time.
