Quick Review and Contest: Andru Android Charger Takes the Charging Cake, Win 1 of 4 Now! (Updated: Winners Picked)

The Andru charger was introduced a couple of weeks back and has since taken the Android collectible world by storm. As the coolest charger you will ever find, Andru lights up while plugged in, has bendable arms, movable antennas, and is your ultimate desk companion.

If your first thought runs along the lines of “Oh, another cheap plastic accessory,” then think again. This charger is actually much higher in quality than I had imagined it would be. It is sturdy plastic and rubber, the green and white matching cord feel of the highest quality, and none of the moving parts feel as if they are on the verge of falling off. It’s a great little charger for the Android enthusiast in the building.

At $25 a pop, you may have a hard time justifying it especially with the half dozen other chargers you have lying around your house. Trust me though, as an Android fanboy, this is definitely worth it.

Jump past the break for photos and contest details. Yep, we’re giving 4 away.  

Contest:

Since we love to give stuff away and the Power by Gen team (makers of Andru) are awesome, we thought we would hand out 4 to the DL community in the simplest of contests. It wouldn’t be fair if a number of you didn’t have a chance to experience Andru and all of his eye-glowing glory for free. Ready?

Instructions:

  1. Follow Andru on Twitter.
  2. In the comments, tell us how many ugly OEM chargers you have lying around your house and where you plan to use Andru (office, bedroom, bathroom, etc.).
  3. We will pick a winner from the comments tomorrow afternoon at 3:00PM Pacific.

Good luck everyone!

Update – Winners:  Our 4 winners taken from the comments are…

Logan Lopez – Hopes that this charger does it in style. It does, my friend.
RadicalPie –  Who has a flush outlet to charge with Bugdroid standing upright. Jealous.
David Larsen –  Just broke a charger and could use such a stylish one.
geedee82 –  Another office Andru on the way!

Congrats guys!

    Geez, at least 7 being an LTE device owner. Gotta have a good network of chargers to make it through the day sometimes, so that means one on the nightstand, one in the car, one on my desk at the office, one in my laptop bag with a retractable cord that travels with me at all times and doubles as a car charger in a pinch, one at my fiance’s place and a couple more for her phone…This one is the tits though and would definitely see heavy use if acquired :D

    Ah, the joys of owning a smartphone!

    I have enough OEM chargers to wrap my entire phone with! Having one, neat looking green one would match my green cruzerlite case, and fit perfectly in my room.

    I plan on using it at work, since I have a plug right on my desk.  It would be so cute here.

    Got five chargers (from my Droid X, blackberry, Bluetooth head set, wife’s RAZR, and my new Galaxy Nexus) and plan on using Andru in my bed room. I bet my kids will love it as a night light. He will help me keep the bad apple away.

    I made a Twitter account just for the chance to win.
    I have about 4 Frankenstein chargers laying around my house. All do the job, some what, but whenever a chord or USB doesn’t work its time to piece together again.
    I would use it at home ( 3 iPhone using roomates) and work ( full of iPhone users)
    My thunderbolt needs andru! Ride the lightning!!

    I have about 5 different charger for my Galaxy Nexus and to be quite honest they are not as unique as this one.  I plan on using this charger (if I win it) wherever I can show it off!  So that means, my bedroom, kitchen, and especially my office so I can make those Apple fanboys “green” with envy!  Here’s hoping I get lucky!!  :D

    I have about 3 different OEM chargers for old phones.  I plan on using the Andru charger at work so I can show it off.  Not that I need to charge my Droid RAZR MAXX at work because the battery life is ridiculously long in this phone.  ;)

    I have 2 OEM Chargers for Phones with Micro-USB connectivity. I have about 5 OEM chargers from non-mobile micro USB connected things (Logitech Harmony Remote among others). 

    I will use Andru in my bedroom. He will help me sleep.
