Today is one of the busiest travel days of the year in the U.S. as people are taking the skies and the roads in order to get to their Thanksgiving destination. If there’s one thing we know about a road trip, it’s the fact that nowadays, you need a way to keep your cellphone charged, especially if you’re streaming media from it to your vehicle. Unfortunately, not all vehicles have USB ports, but if you have a 12 volt outlet and a free cup holder, then you can just have R2-D2 be your USB-charging co-pilot.

The R2-D2 USB Car Charger can sit comfortable in your vehicle’s cup holder and is able to plug into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter adapter to charge up a total of two USB devices, such as smartphones or tablets, at the same time.

Having an R2-D2 sitting at your side, charging your USB devices would be cool enough, but that’s not all this droid can do. When you plug in a device to the R2-D2 USB Car Charger, his dome will start turning and lighting up as he lets out a series of beeps.

The R2-D2 USB Car Charger can be purchased at ThinkGeek for $49.99. I’m lucky enough to have a car with USB ports, but I would still want this for my car.
