Meet Andru. He's an Android. Like all Androids, he's adorable. He sits on your desk and makes you smile at his cute little expressionless face while you toil away on those TPS reports. This little 'droid is a hard worker, too. When you need him to, he transforms into a USB wall charger and provides precious juice to all your gadgets.

Your new little buddy costs $25, and he'll make sure he's worth every penny. Andru comes with a stand to hide his power-plug legs when they're not needed, as well as a green and white micro-USB cable. Thankfully, more and more devices these days are using a standard charging cable, so a good majority of you with major Android handsets out there should be able to make use of our favorite green buddy to charge your phones.

Oh, and did we mention his eyes light up? Yes. It turns out his eyes are blue, by the way. You can also move his arms to make him wave. Now, if you'll excuse me, the cuteness overload is making me cry rainbows. I need to go order about ten of these right now.

    That's cool but, $25 dollars for a charger? It'd better fully charge my device in 5 minutes.

      Well, it's not just a charger, it is also an Android figurine. And it glows. It's definitely one of those things you don't need but want. Badly.

        Artem I hate you..... I want it now but have tk wait till I get paid.. you cruel cruel man....

        I am going to wire my desk so that there is a plug built Into it but is flush with the desk so the android doesn't show its plugs or look like there Is anything there...

      • Mesmorino

        And since it won't work in the UK without an adapter, no amount of glowing eyes is ever going to convince me to buy one

        Having said that, is it actually going to work anywhere outside of the US and Canada? Granted that's a pretty big market, but still. The rest of us DO exist after all.

          Shipping internationally is both difficult and expensive. I can understand complaints when it's software we're talking about, but it takes a lot of money to be able to ship overseas, let alone to actually ship stuff.

          For example, the company I work for took five years to develop the necessary infrastructure to ship laptops internationally. We still don't ship to every country.

        • curiouser

          not even Canada :(

  • Nick Coad

    That's cool, but of course the plug won't work here in Australia without an adapter, which would spoil it I think.

  • watson387

    That thing is sweet! Now to convince the wife I need it...

  • Big waner

    If it was the size of a cat i would buy

  • Rob

    Perhaps Android Police would consider doing a giveaway for one of these babies. :)

    Hmm, UK plugs have to be three-pin so an Android design might not work here, but maybe someone could market a similar Ron Jeremy charger. :)

  • slurms mckenzie

    really cool but damn 25$ is a little too much for me. ill wait to see if the price comes down to around 10-15$
