You’re probably fresh off of watching Thor The Dark World and now you want as much Thor memorabilia as possible. For me, I see another superhero movie hitting theaters worldwide making the next big wave of movie tie-in accessories. And although Loki seems to be the most popular character at the moment, we can’t forget about the most important character of all – Thor’s Hammer!
We all know the stars of the movie are Thor and Loki, yet our tough avenger would be nothing without his trusty hammer, Mjolnir. Now you can own Thor’s Hammer as a USB Charger. What makes this charger a little more supernatural is that it’s actually a USB battery pack. The battery pack itself is massive in terms of aluminum, zinc and plastic clad power pack weighs in at 450g and measures 13 x 8 x 5cm in size. In spite of that, the hammer’s handle does make it easy to carry the battery around.
The device itself looks fantastic. If Thor had a smartphone, this is how he would charge it. It has both a standard sized USB 2.0 port in addition to a micro USB option for charging devices and can throw up to 52 watts of power through the Sanyo rechargeable batteries embedded within it. That’s not all. It also has LEDs and audio effects that come from the built-in speakers when you swing it. As you might have already guessed, this portable battery pack allows you to charge your mobile USB devices when AC plug are not available.
It includes a micro USB charging port as well as a full sized USB 2.0 with a 2.1A output anything up to a power hungry iPad. On top of that, the Thor Hammer USB also uses high quality Sanyo rechargeable batteries and comes in three versions:
- 2600 mAh
- 5200 mAh
- 10400 mAh
Although it incorporates an incredible 52 watts of power, 10400 mAh models will take ten full hours to recharge. As novelty item though, probably its coolest feature is the fact that the battery powers built in LEDs and speakers that mimic Mjolnir’s effects when you swing it. The only catch (besides its size) is that the model is only (technically) available in Asia for the moment so along with its respectable $125 asking price you’ll have to source out special shipping.
