Drive like Poe Dameron with this ‘Star Wars’ BB-8 USB car charger

This skittish little astromech may not be able to help with navigation or repairs, but it will ensure you’re never stranded without a fully charged smartphone, iPod or tablet.

It’s the pretty darned adorable Star Wars BB-8 USB car charger, which fits snugly into the droid socket of your T-70 X-wing … or the standard cupholder of your more grounded ride. Featuring two 2.1A USB charging ports, it plugs into your cigarette lighter.

However, that’s not all it does (of course): As you can see in the video below, BB-8 also rotates its head and makes signature sounds.

Officially licensed, the Star Wars BB-8 USB car charger is available for preorder from ThinkGeek for $40.
