File this under, WANT! External battery solutions number in the hundreds if not the thousands all over the internet. But mimoco is making one that sets itself apart from all the others on the market. Meet, the Star Wars MimoPowerBot™. Darth Vader and R2-D2 are both 5200mAh ready and sport a 2.1A output to charge not only your smartphone but your tablets as well. This is a definite must have for any Star Wars fan and priced fairly at $60 (probably a little higher than other similar sized batteries but you factor in licensing fees from Lucas/Disney). There are other fun characters to choose from but Darth and R2 are the Star Wars choices. Check out the full press release below and hit the link after to pick yours up!
