Quote:
Charleston, SC, January 23, 2013 – Twelve South is pleased to unveil PlugBug World, an all-in-one USB iPad/iPhone charger that converts any MacBook Power Adapter into a dual charger that can be used globally. The powerful PlugBug World piggybacks onto your MacBook power adapter, allowing you to simultaneously charge your MacBook and iPad or iPhone from one electrical outlet.

This world version of the PlugBug charger includes five international snap-on plugs for use in the UK, Europe, Australia, China, and North America.

PlugBug World is compatible with all Apple MacBook Power Adapters and is available now at twelvesouth.com for $44.99 / 39.99 / 44,99 €. More info and images can be found at www.twelvesouth.com.



[Edit] - $44.99 for the unit and $25 Flat Rate Shipping to the UK.....

That's about 45, which isn't too bad I guess.

Great idea - but for the price, I'll stick to using two chargers.

When I travel I do. However I guess this device will charge quicker?

Seems alot to pay to put a USB port 3ft away from where one is already anyways (Your Mac).

Exactly! Just plug the Mac into the outlet and plug the iPhone/iPod/iPad into the Mac. Simple and no need to buy anything extra.

Truth be told, you need less time to charge it with power charger.
