Star Wars R2-D2 USB Wall Charger geeks out your home

r2-d2_usb_chargerI am quite sure everyone who is a movie buff, whether a moderate, serious or hardcore one, would be looking forward to see just how Star Wars Episode VII would be like when it hits the silver screen at the end of the year. It will be a mammoth hit, that is for sure, but as to whether this hit will be able to break all box office records for the year remains to be seen. Still, this does not mean that the merch market is going to be empty – no sir, here we are with the $29.99 Star Wars R2-D2 USB Wall Charger which is guaranteed to generate interest simply due to the nostalgic and geeky factors.

The Star Wars R2-D2 USB Wall Charger works as it is named – it is a simple USB wall charger, except that it comes in the form factor of everyone’s favorite astromech droid – R2-D2. There will be a couple of USB ports to help you get started right out of the box – 2.1A + 1.0A, allowing you to charge up two different USB devices simultaneously. This ThinkGeek creation and exclusive is unable to be shipped outside of the US due to licensing restrictions, bummer! It might not make any sound when plugged in, but it sure as heck will light up!
