Not an Arc Reactor
File this under silly.
It's a USB car charger in the shape of Iron Man (or Iron Patriot/War Machine).
I enjoy collecting little toy figurines of superheroes. I admit I have an Iron Man t-shirt that I wear, but I couldn't think of a good reason for the Iron Man CAR CHARGER. Until, I thought of my friend Dave, and his son.
It's almost time for that summertime drive to the relatives' house - a grueling 3 hour car ride. Fortunately, your kids have the luxury of mobile devices in the back seat, so they can watch videos, rather than punching each other with each passing car.
Or your kid might have electronic devices at their disposal for even short car trips. The thing is'. kids don't charge their devices.
To the rescue: Iron Man car charger. There's probably a cigarette lighter socket in your back seat - even if there isn't a lighter -
Plug it in and let your kid light up on the way to Aunt Semla's.
