Mimoco® Announces Star Wars x MimoPowerBot Line Beth Snyder June 27, 2014 Press Release 6 Flares 6 Flares × It should come as no surprise that I'm bringing this one to your attention. Mimoco®, Star Wars, and battery charging all in one fabulous package? How could I possibly resist? These are known as MimoPowerBot™, not to be confused with MIMOBOT® (the line of flash drives from Mimoco), and I'm pretty sure I need them. They of course come in a wide variety of characters in general, but the ones being unveiled at CE Week 2014 are Darth Vader and R2-D2. I'm sure they'd be a lovely addition to my Mimoco® Star Wars collection. Each Star Wars x MimoPowerBot™ has a 5200mAh capacity lithium-ion battery with a 2.1A output, designed to charge not just smartphones, but also tablets or any other 5V USB-powered devices. They're supposed to be able to charge a smartphone three times before needing to be recharged themselves, and they're just a neat thing to have in your bag. I can't imagine any self-respecting Star Wars fan wanting to be without one. And now you can pre-order yours for delivery by Christmas at a cost of just $59.99 US each. What are you waiting for?
