Befriend BB-8 with this adorable car charger


Daniel Anderson

BB-8 was the very best things in Star Wars the Force Awakens and you can make sure he never leaves your side with this great gift

BB-8 is just the best and if you've been missing the little astro droid since the adventure of Star Wars the Force Awakens you can get one of your very own for your next car-based adventure!

Those clever sorts over at ThinkGeek have put together another exclusive creation which takes the best nerdy stuff and makes it actually useful. This time it's an actual little BB-8 which handily also plugs into your cigarrette lighter and works as an in-car charger.

The little guy comes with two ports and will work with anything that takes a USB, provided you have the required cable. So you can charge phones, tablets, cameras, even your smartwatch if you're into that sort of thing. And he's perfectly crafted to rest easily in your cup holder so he's secure no matter how bumpy the ride gets.

There's a button to spark off some choice conversation, and also three volume settings (including mute) if you'd rather have some quiet time. You can tell BB-8 is working with a handy light and even if you've got nothing to charge - which is rare these days - you'll always have some company.

Now for the bad news - this little sucker costs $40 and is currently only available for shipping to the US and Canada. That might change in the future so stay tuned!
