Charge Your iPhone With Darth Vader’s Frickin’ Lightsaber

External USB battery packs are a dime a dozen, and most of them look pretty similar. Why bother with one of those, though, when you can power your iPhone with Darth Vader’s fricking lightsaber?

The Darth Vader Lightsaber Portable Charger is an officially licensed Star Wars product, which means you don’t need to worry about Disney lawyers busting down your door.

Designed to look exactly like the Dark Lord of the Sith’s iconic laser sword, it features a 2,800 mAh battery. That’s not going to recharge an iPad, but for an iPhone, it should be sufficient to get a couple of charges.

As with most of these battery packs, the Darth Vader Lightsaber Portable Charger is charged with a micro USB cable, and the device charges your iPhone just like a real lightsaber, by simply thrumming the switch. It even lights up at the end!
