Danbo is a Cardboard Robot that Moonlights as a Battery Pack

screenshot_1991Well, that’s nice, Danbo is always cute. The little cardboard robot that could, for sale in the form of yet another little knick-knack — wait, what’s that? 6,000 mAh battery? Oh, OK then. Attention given.

This is Danbo the cardboard robot’s head, but there’s way more going on in this head than just air and maybe packaging material. The 6,000 mAh battery inside this portable charger is big enough to charge the average smartphone 2.5 times over, which is pretty great from something that’s only about 3” x 2” x 1.5”. Seeing as how that’s probably more than enough battery power for you to use on your phone in one day, the battery pack has two USB ports, so you can charge two devices at once. There’s also a Micro USB port when it comes time to charge the battery pack itself.

Danbo’s eyes light up during charging, and automatically shut down (along with the battery) when your device is fully charged. The fact that it’s Danbo is great enough, but when you consider that this is a truly pocketable 6,000 mAh battery, well, that’s just a good deal now matter how you slice it. You can get the officially named Robot Head Portable Charger from Firebox now for $58.19.


  1. I love Danbo and have MANY models, but have never really used them to charge my phone. Cool!
