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:

    I would be proud to have Andru as a sidekick! Ever since I have discovered the Android operating system, I have felt a passion, much like the passion I once felt for the Windows operating systen many years ago. The possibilities seem endless, and for me, learning new things about the Android OS is so much fun! I would like to have Andru to commemorate my love and passion towards my Android device. He keeps the geek in me young! Please send him my way! Thanks!

  • theonlymikeg

    this would look awesome on my wall outlet over my desk. These are on my "Want List"

  • George

    Well, it says I entered the moment I logged in, despite not having done a thing. So I suppose THIS is my entry. If it counts great, if not that sucks.

    I want one of these. As for creative... well, I just recently received a new desk. Very nice and fancy. Since it's a gift and since the gifter is a major neat freak, I am essentially forbidden from even remotely enjoying my desk. But for Andru, here's what I'm willing to do. I am willing to cut a hole right into the top of the desk to situate him, so he's right next to me as I work and within easy reach so I can charge my Nexus S. Also, way too many of my friends (as well as brother) are diehard Apple fans. Nothing would please me more than having a sign of my Android fandom being right there on my desk staring them in their Apple loving faces. Mocking them with it's glowing eyes as it charges my phone. Waving at them in a manner saying "Hey, look at me. I'm cool and you're not." Something like that.
