R2-PD2 "Parts Drop"
Balin travels with an R2 unit he calls Parts or Parts Drop (PD), not because he thinks the droid is extra parts but because the droid has a tendency (despite repeated attempts to reprogram) to take random parts from ships and places it has been and keeps them stored in hidden locations for later uses.
