Because everyone wants to tote around less things, add-ons that make your current gear more convenient are greatly appreciated. This is TwelveSouth 's new PlugBug Duo feature. Clip your MacBook charger and add a USB port.
I have a MacBook Pro with a USB-C port, but it is particularly useful for those who need to charge gadgets that use traditional USB ports.
Since the "wall watt" charge of MacBook is large enough to take over the electrical socket, the built-in USB port can save lives. There is another advantage: TwelveSouth includes five adapters, so MacBook chargers can be used in more than 150 countries. For comparison, Apple's version of these adapters is $ 29.
This clip is compatible with all MacBook chargers released by Apple in the past, present and in the past. PlugBug Duo does not interfere with charging the laptop. A little bulky, the charger will be more convenient.
PlugBug Duo Bonus for iPhone and iPad
As an added benefit, two additional USB-A ports can supply 2.1 A / 12 W of power. This is enough for quick charging of iPhone and iPad that supports this feature. The iPad charger already provides this combination of A / W, but iPhone 's ones are not provided.
If this idea seems familiar, this will replace PlugBug in 2011, but the number of USB ports has doubled.
PlugBug Duo is available on the TwelveSouth website. It is sold for $ 49.99.
