Andru is probably the most adorable power adapter in the universe. The bugdroid-inspired plug has movable arms, flexible antennae, and light-up eyes (blue means charging, white is for standby), making it a perfect desk charger and about 100 times more dynamic than the average power brick.
The 2.5" adapter has 5V/1A DC output, and normally costs $25 each for an Andru, Andru Dark, Andru Chill, or Andra (pink) unit. In preparation for holiday shopping (or just for fun, who knows?) Read More
One of the best things about being an Android fan is having a killer little mascot that defines the brand. The Bug Droid is everywhere – on cases, shirts, posters, toys, speakers, and a lot more. If you can dream it up, it probably exists somewhere. Out of all the Android-branded accessories, however, PoweredByGen's Andru is one of the best – it's a device charger that looks like the Bug Droid. Read More
It's not enough to charge your phone with a standard microUSB cable. No, it's best if it's plugged into something that looks like the Android mascot (obviously). That used to mean your most meaningful charging could only take place where a standard AC outlet was available via the lovable Andru. Well now you can show your Android love on the go with HoneyDru, a 2.0A car charger that looks like a certain platform logo from a few years back. Read More
Andru, PowerbyGen's hit device charger based on our favorite robot, is unquestionably the most adorable adapter you'll ever see. Since his debut last year, Andru has been joined by white and dark versions and international accessories.
Today, PowerbyGen has expanded the family with Andra, a "more graceful" alternative to "her hunkier companions."
If you're familiar with Andru, you already know what you'll be getting with Andra: a pink version of the charger, with pose-able arms, a stand, and light-up eyes. Read More
Do you know Andru? He's possibly the most adorable little phone charger you'll ever see. With a USB port on top of his head, he'll charge right into your heart. Now folks from Europe and the UK can get an Andru of their very own with the new SHUTL adapters. Maybe to make up for the delay, there are some deals to be had.
Here at Android Police, we kind of sort of unabashedly love the Andru wall chargers. Even my black heart cannot deny their ridiculous cuteness. At $25 a pop, though, they're probably up there among the most pricey power interfaces you can purchase this side of a Best Buy Magnolia Home Theater store. But if you've been looking to get your hands on one at a discount, good news: you can grab a pair of these adorable little electrified bugdroids for just $35 - 30% off the regular price. Read More
This morning, Gen announced the newest addition to the Andru family: Chill. He's a relaxed little guy with a good demeanor. On the other side of the fence, though, is his cousin, Andru Dark. He's the wicked one of the bunch, with red glowing eyes and an appetite for destruction. Then there's the original Andru - the old, wise one. He's figured out the balance between good and evil, and is just happy to be included. Read More
You remember this little guy? Of course you do. He's freaking cute, how could you not remember? Don't act like you don't want one. Everyone does. However, if you've loved the idea but were holding out for one in white, today's your lucky day. Right now, the useful bugdroid buddy has gone on sale in a new 'Chill' flavor. Perfectly white with a nice silver accent along the neckline. Fantastic. Read More
There are many ways to show your support for Android beyond your device itself, and some of them are even tasteful. If you've bought every Bugdroid-sporting case, T-shirt and bumper sticker, there's just one thing left: a green robot Micro-USB charger. Of course, the Android mascot's ubiquitous shade of green isn't for everybody, so Andru creators Gen have been preparing a darker version to match your ebony desk and jet-black monitors. Read More
Remember our little friend Andru? Of course you do (and if not, I've conveniently linked a reminder in the first sentence, so you can act like you do)! He's so tiny, adorable, and charges your device with the greatest of ease. With all his charm, it's no surprise that he's one of our favorite Android accessories.
While he's quite the looker with his green exterior, he's going to be getting a makeover over the next month or two, and will be available in three more colors: black, white, and pink. Read More
