PlugBug Duo MacBook Travel Adapter & USB Device Charger
Twelve South has made the PlugBug, a nifty MacBook charger accessory with an adorable name that might help absorb some of the rage you feel at Apple for constantly F'ing with your devices' ports and power sources. The dashing red PlugBug attaches to your MacBook or iPad charger in place of Apple's white 2-prong or extension cord to expand your USB port availability by two. Gone may be the conveniences of charging existing USB devices from your new USB-C-addled laptop (and they were never available on your tablet in the first place) but with a PlugBug, they're at least still within easy reach.
The PlugBug is a nice tool to have while computing on-the-go at coffee shops, airports, and the ER waiting room, and the PlugBug Duo shown here adds more versatility with a set of 5 plug adapters for foreign travel. In addition to the standard US / Canada / Japan plug, you can swap out for a UK / HongKong / Singapore, Continental Europe, Australia / New Zealand, or China adapter to continue powering your laptop, and accessing the 2 USB ports, on your trips.
The PlugBug Duo's USB charging ports are 2.1 amps, suitable for fast charging iPads, iPhones, and Apple Watches. The charger accessory works with Apple MagSafe + USB-C Power Adapters and any USB charging cable.
