Tech: New Talking Claptrap USB Hub & Car Charger

ThinkGeek recently released 2 new fun Borderlands talking Claptrap devices, a car charger, and a USB hub.

 

Borderlands Claptrap Talking Car Charger – Exclusive:

$39.99

HELLO TRAVELER!

“Claptrap” is an archaic 18th-century word that means “nonsense” or “rubbish.” It also used to mean “a trick or device to catch applause” – literally a “trap for claps.” Yeah. Either one fits our favorite little CL4P-TP perfectly, don’t you think? If only he’d shut up, ever.

Not much hope of that when you plug this Borderlands Claptrap Talking Car Charger into your vehicle. He fits in a standard cupholder and his eye lights up blue when he’s receiving power. He’ll keep your tablet and phone full of juice while regaling you. Well, actually, he only says three things. “Hahaaaa! I am alive! Let’s get moving o’ noble henchman” when you plug him in. And “Oooh… I finally got an excuse to turn this on” and “How ya feelin’ minion? Ya feelin’ good? I’m feelin’ good” when you use the charging ports. Best part? We added a mute button. Cause we’ve hung out with Claptrap before.

“JUST FOLLOW THE SOOTHING SOUND OF MY VOICE!!!”

Claptrap wrote a song just for you. Are you ready to hear it? Are you ready to feel its funky fresh beat flow through your phalanges? Okay, then, here it goes: Wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub. DROP! (pause.) Wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub.

Whether you need to plug in a subwoofer for proper appreciation of your dubstep mastery or you just have a bunch of peripherals, this Borderlands Claptrap Talking USB Hub will be there for you. This four port hub both charges and transfers data – and it talks a little smack. Each time you connect the hub or interact with one of the ports, you’ll be greeted by a sound file from Claptrap. And because this was our creation? We put in a mute button. You’re welcome.
