Twelve South's PlugBug World: the little red gizmo goes international
Remember the Twelve South PlugBug? It's a cool little bright red adapter that adds a 2.1 Amp USB charger to your MacBook power adapter so you can charge both your MacBook and favorite iOS device at the same time. Today Twelve South unveiled PlugBug World (US$44.99), an international version of the charger that includes snap-on plugs for use in outlets around the world.
Made with the traveler in mind, PlugBug World has snap-on plugs for use in US/Canada/Japan, UK/Hong Kong/Singapore, Continental Europe, Australia/New Zealand and China. They're available for purchase now, and Twelve South is picking up shipping costs in the US. International customers can get flat-rate shipping to most countries.
We'll have a review of the Twelve South PlugBug World soon. It's too bad PlugBug World wasn't out a couple of weeks ago; our intrepid world traveler Mike Schramm could have used it on his trip to Marseilles, France this week.
