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

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

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!

    Andru is a very creative way of charging the best product out there. I work in an office in which everyone but me has an iPhone, and all day I have to hear about how great their phones are...blah, blah, blah. And yet they are amazed by what my Rezound can do when I show them. It would be great to have this at my desk to constantly and easily show off my Android pride to all the Fanboys here!!!!

  • http://theultimatetechnews.blogpost.com Dhaval

    You want to charge your favorite android phone, doing so using a wall charger is normal. You want to do something different, how about using an Android Mascot? Since its about charging your favorite android phone, might as well do it along with the help of a little green bot. It is an adorable little alien looking green mascot which is here to stay.
