“Claptrap” is an archaic 18th-century word that means “nonsense” or “rubbish.” It also used to mean “a trick or device to catch applause” – literally a “trap for claps.” Yeah. Either one fits our favorite little CL4P-TP perfectly, don’t you think? If only he’d shut up, ever.
Not much hope of that when you plug this Borderlands Claptrap Talking Car Charger into your vehicle. He fits in a standard cupholder and his eye lights up blue when he’s receiving power. He’ll keep your tablet and phone full of juice while regaling you. Well, actually, he only says three things. “Hahaaaa! I am alive! Let’s get moving o’ noble henchman” when you plug him in. And “Oooh… I finally got an excuse to turn this on” and “How ya feelin’ minion? Ya feelin’ good? I’m feelin’ good” when you use the charging ports. Best part? We added a mute button. Cause we’ve hung out with Claptrap before.
