Any and every true Star Wars fan knows that R2-D2 is a plucky droid that exists to give just as good as he gets. He’s taken some royal beatings in service to the Republic, the Rebel Alliance and two generations of Skywalkers along the way, but they can’t compare to some of the critical assists he has given when the chips have been down. From carting around secret distress messages, shutting down trash compactors before they can reduce his pals the thickness of filing folders and delivering damning Death Star schematics to helping track Luke Skywalker down to a secluded cliff, he’s always packing a little extra juice where it counts.
Sure, this R2-D2 AC/USB Power Station’s footprint consumes two Type B sockets in a U.S.-standard outlet. That kind of thing normally has us mystifying English scholars with newly invented expletives. Not this time. This ThinkGeek original and exclusive wall-mounted charger actually provides four Type B sockets in addition to an extra two USB ports (2.1A and 1.0A), making it an ingeniously designed power strip.
That R2…what a giver.
