Last Updated: February 12th, 2012

Remember yesterday, when we introduced you to an adorable USB charger named Andru? In case you missed it, Andru, from Gen, is a cute Android accessory that "wants to charge your phone." This little guy is not only a USB charger, but an awesome cubicle decoration. Modeled after the bugdroid we all know and love, Andru's power-plug legs can be hidden by a matching base, he has moveable arms, and his eyes light up blue, making Andru perhaps the most dynamic, fun USB charger you'll ever encounter. Luckily for our readers, Power by Gen has given us 4 Andru units to give away. Keep reading to find out how you can win!

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Greg Dommel

  • Matt Palmer

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

The Giveaway

Before we get into rules, I should mention that this particular giveaway is limited to the U.S., as Gen currently only produces a U.S. version of Andru, and will only ship within the 50 states. If you want to be the first to find out when Gen starts releasing new versions, you can join their mailing list here or follow Gen on Twitter or Facebook.

To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling us what you think of Andru. As with our most recent lightning giveaway, we're using a new giveaway management tool by Rafflecopter, which you'll see below.

Note: You have to click "+1 DO IT!" and ENTER in the widget below for your entry to be counted.

Winners will be chosen randomly, but feel free to get creative with your entry. The giveaway will run for about 3 days, so hurry up and submit your comment for your chance to get an adorable Andru USB charger!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000143543714 Jeremy Gomez

    This little guy is seriously awesome. It's not only a cool decoration, but it's actually useful too. Definitely worthy to be part of any Android collection. :)

  • Dan

    Someone stole my hubs from my desk at work.. working with mainly iOS developers, it would be fantastic to see them suffer at the hands of an Android hub!

  • ack154

    OMG, MY HEAD. There's something sticking out of my head!!

  • Elad

    these things are pretty damn adorable!

  • http://www.smple.com John McMullen

    I think Andru is awesome b/c it just brings some colors to all those boring chargers! It will be a total chick magnet for sure for when I have guests in my room :P

  • strra

    why didn't i think of that?

  • shamekia

    I have a great home for Andru in my office and I know my EVO 3D will welcome him with open arms.

  • Edward Kim

    I would really want one... for my work... im in the IT field and it would be perfect for my desk....

  • Wolf Revels

    As a stagehand I depend on my device all throughout my long days. This makes my Galaxy SII very hungry. Being the kind of busy guy that I am, doing my best to see all your entertainment needs are safely met? I could really use Andru"s help to keep my baby well fed.

  • techvudu

    Andru is a total win on the swag front. Nothing says "I'm a fanboy" like a green robot charging station. Totally diggin the included cable and the fact that it plugs in to his head. I'm in for sure.

  • Andre

    Ill take a green booger which can charge my phone. Thanks

  • Tyler

    Love it! Yes, please!
