With the latest installment in the Star Wars saga dominating the box office, the want and need for intergalactic merch is at fever pitch. But rather than picking up any officially licensed merch, grab something that’s equal parts practical and dorktastic, like this R2-D2 USB car charger.

It beeps and bloops just like the big screen version of the droid we’ve all grown to love. While it’s unclear if the real R2-D2 has any USB ports, this miniature version comes with 2. And with 2.1 amps flowing freely to each of those ports, you could charge two devices at the same time. So, if you and your passenger both need to charge your respective phones, R2 can handle that.

R2’s dome will even rotate and his “eye” also lights up, in addition to his fun sound effects. The best part, however, is that his feet and arms are flexible enough to ensure he fits easily into most cupholders. He won’t, however, be able to troubleshoot any issues you might have with your speeder (aka car).
