Review & Giveaway of Andru: Android Themed USB Charger [Updated with Winner]

February 9, 2012

So you remember on Tuesday when we did the unboxing of the Andru – Android USB Charger accessory? Well now is the time to enter so you can win your own Andru. So let’s jump into the mini-review of this cool, adorable (as the ladies would say) charger for your Android device.

How well does it work?

I’ve only used it about 2 times to charge my Droid Bionic, but it seems like it charges it bit faster then the Motorola charger. It was able to charge my Bionic from 0% all the way to 100% in just over an hour (about an hour and 15 minutes), which on the Motorola charger that came with it, takes almost 2 hours to go the full round. So what other functionality could it have? I mean it’s just a charger that looks the Android guy we have seen over the past few years.  But if you have any questions feel free to leave them below in the comments and I will try my best to get back to you.

Andru’s eyes light up when he is plugged in. They are supposed to be white when it’s idle and blue when it’s actually charging. But it looks like a light blue to me the entire time. So I don’t know if it’s just the lighting in my house or what. His arms do around so you can kinda play with him if you wanted.

If you’d like to purchase one, it’s $25 at powerbygen.com.

The Giveaway

Yeah we know you’d love to get one of these, and here’s your chance. Unfortunately we only have one to giveaway. This is only open to US residents as Gen currently only manufacturers a US version of Andru, so we apologize in advance to our international friends.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post by 12:01am Monday morning and you will be entered to win. We are using Rafflecopter for this one, this way it’s fair to everyone, and a winner will be chosen at random. In the widget below you can see how much time is left and how many entries have been collected as well as who has entered.

Thank you to everyone who entered this giveaway. We had over 40 entries, we have notified the winner. Stay tuned to Android Authority for more giveaways in the near future.

      The main reason why it’s only available to people in the US is because it only works on a US power outlet. But we are working on more giveaways in the future, that will hopefully be available to our international friends, so stay tuned.
