Darth Vader MimoPowerTube 2

“I find your lack of power disturbing…and insanely cute.”

Look, anybody can have a portable power bank that doubles as a boring silver tube — why not come packing back-up power in the form of the most infamous Sith Lord in the history of the galaxy? 

Help Disney continue its marketing takeover of said galaxy with this very cool Mimoco Darth Vader MimoPowerTube2 power battery, now just $22.99 in the TechnoBuffalo Deals Store.

Setting aside the Star-Wars-iness of it all for a second, this charger packs a 2600mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery, LED lights to chart your power level and Micro USB and Lightning cable compatibility.  But no matter how much we talk about its 500-charge cycle life or its handiness for any iPhone, Android, tablet or 5V device user, its inherent Star-Wars-iness is really what you’re picking this up for, right?

On the neat Star Wars product scale, this one ranks impressively high, sporting a decidedly cartoony caricature of Vader that will probably inspire more cooing “awws” than fear from amused onlookers. But if you don’t want to be seen representing the Dark Side (or you’re just not down with black tech), you can also pick this item up in the glistening white, silver and blue visage of plucky droid R2-D2.

Make sure your iPhone has enough power to keep playing those John Williams’ scores on perpetual repeat with the Darth Vader MimoPowerTube2, now 23% off its regular price.
