    Andru Android USB cable charger

    Another product sent along for me to test out was Andru. Andru is a unique USB charger that is focused on the Android platform, but can be used to charge up other devices requiring a microUSB cable.

    Andru package contents

    Inside the package you will find Andru, a matching stand, and a matching USB to micro-USB cable. Andru is a green Android robot with a full-sized USB opening at the top between his antennae. His legs are two prongs for a typical outlet with the stand serving to cover the prongs in green.

  • Wow. Utterly speechless...

    I think the only thing missing was

    'Available at all good retailers'

    So to get reviews out of you we have to send you free junk? Couldn't zdnet pay you or something? Kudos on choosing some tat for both apple and android... It at least keeps the teenagers out of the comments.

    FYI a review would typically give some kind of personal experience of the product; strengths/weaknesses ... Things you liked/didn't like?

    I was in a newsagent the other day that had headphones with little London busses on them. Thats kind of fun for tourists... Maybe I could send you a pair and you could advertise them? They work with all phones?
    • What do you expect? Companies don't always send reviews free stuff

      The most prominent example being Apple.

      BTW, if you expect them to buy and review random items you're crazy; from what I hear this is a side job for most of the writers here. They don't get paid nearly enough.
  • I haven't been a teenager for nearly 40 years

    but I think these are great!

    And to be fair, they're listed under 'Latest Articles' not 'News'.
