Brando’s USB Retro Telephone doesn’t make calls, but does keep time


Are you an USB gadget collector? Here’s one for you… the USB Telephone from Brando. It’s shaped like an old time rotary dial phone… but doesn’t make calls. The rotary area is a clock and the handset is a light with 12 LEDs. The only ‘bad’ thing is that the clock is powered by 3 x R14 batteries which are NOT included. I’m not even sure what R14 batteries are. If that doesn’t scare you away, you order one for $29.00.

    Don’t be intimidated! R14 is just international-speak for what we Merkins call “C Cell Batteries”… the same kind in most flashlights.
