R2-D2 World Power Adapter: No Need to Go to Toshi Station to Pick up Some Power Converters

While BB-8 might be newer and more adorable, R2-D2 will always be our #1 droid. He’s always been a highly versatile member of robot society, offering up just the right tool at just the right moment. Need a holographic projection of a princess in need? Check. How about an interface for hacking into an Imperial destroyer? Got it covered. Need a periscope for negotiating bogs on Dagobah? No prob. Now it turns out R2 has another trick up his robotic sleeves – he’s can help your electronic devices work all around the world.

Inside this R2 unit, you’ll find power adapters for converting between US, UK, AUS, and EU-standard wall outlets, so you can travel without worrying that your gadget will work around the globe. Since most modern gadgets support multiple voltages automatically, you should just be able to plug your power brick into the appropriate adapter inside of R2’s footless chassis. You’ll still want to double-check that your devices are multi-voltage compatible before plugging them into a strange outlet and frying them like that time R2 got fried in the back of Luke’s X-wing fighter during the battle of Yavin.

The R2-D2 global power adapter is available from Brando for $42.
