PlugBug is a simple, slick-looking solution for those who are loaded with Apple gizmos but short on wall outlets. That’s probably a pretty niche audience, so sticking with standard iOS device power adapters and saving $35 will be the better choice for most folks. But for travelers who regularly find difficulty in charging their iPhones or iPads alongside their MacBooks, this diminutive device could be a godsend.
PlugBug--a handy travel accessory for jet-setting gadget junkies.
The PlugBug fits seamlessly around the contours of any MacBook power adapter and acts as a 10W USB charger, filling an iPhone’s or iPad’s battery status bar as quickly as Apple’s own 10W adapters. Using an adapter such as PlugBug frees your MacBook’s USB port for other uses, and allows you to continuously charge your iPhone or iPad even when the laptop is turned off. You can’t plug the MacBook’s longer cord into its power adapter when PlugBug is in use, however, and the short length of an iPhone/iPad charging cable could be an issue when stretched from a wall outlet to a hotel desk. But as previously stated, the product is still a welcome workaround for those with a very specific need.
The bottom line. PlugBug is a handy solution for folks who really need it, but it’s a $34.99 luxury for those who aren’t short on wall outlets and don’t mind carrying multiple power adapters.
Any MacBook power adapter
Charge a MacBook and iOS device from a single outlet, no waiting. Stylish.
Two outlets renders PlugBug almost entirely unnecessary.
