This charger includes adapters for C I bought this for a trip to France this summer, knowing that i'd want to charge my iPhone, and one of the two iPads we own. This charger includes adapters for Continental Europe, Asia, the US and the UK, and it allows for charging of one or two devices depending on whether or not you bring your additional Apple charger too. I was incredibly impressed with this charger, the included bag helps with organization, and really can not find a single fault, plus it was great value too!

      Excellent, No Issues Whatsoever, A Small Issue

      This is an excellent product. After doing my research, I figured that the PlugBug World Charger would be a better revision of the original PlugBug (US Version) This is an excellent product. After doing my research, I figured that the PlugBug World Charger would be a better revision of the original PlugBug (US Version) that only worked for the US , eliminating the heat and noise issue perhaps. And I was right. This is my first PlugBug and I absolutely love it. No heat and noise issues as stated by reviewers of the original PlugBug. Saves me time and hassle by allowing me to simultaneously charge my iPhone or iPad along with my MacBook Air. Easy to set up, a little bit bulky but that's certainly obvious, given that you're given an extra outlet for the USB charging capability. Comes with the plugs that allows you to charge in other countries and a small bag to hold those plugs. One design limitation, however, is the US adapter plug provided with the PlugBug isn't retractable like the Apple adapter plug. Simple fix around that is to use the Apple adapter plug, even though it sticks out just a little bit. A minor concern. Highly recommended piece of gear if you own a MacBook and an iPad or an iPhone.

      Great Customer Service

      I bought one as I do a lot of international travel. I already have the regular model and love the full power USB port which makes charging much faster. This t I bought one as I do a lot of international travel. I already have the regular model and love the full power USB port which makes charging much faster. This time I seem to have gotten one with some quality faults as the USB plug was dead When I contacted Twelve South they sent out a replacement by courier and took care of all the shipping and cross border charges. I had it in two days. Fantastic service. I am having another problem with a product bought through the Apple online store and the manufacturer is putting up a lot of hoops to jump through in order to get a replacement product. Makes you grateful for how good Twelve South customer service is.

      Feels cheap and doesn't fit new Mac Book Pro (2016) charger

      I like the idea of this device, not just due to the international adapters but to provide a USB charger output given the MacBook Pro now one has USB C connector I like the idea of this device, not just due to the international adapters but to provide a USB charger output given the MacBook Pro now one has USB C connectors and I have 3 USB based apple devices in addition to the MacBook to charge whilst I'm travelling. However the adapter will not fit the new MacBook Pro power brick. The steel locating pin seems to be too big for the PlugBug. And the whole device feel cheaply made and even brittle. I'll be returning to Apple and relying on travel adaptors instead. Shame - nice idea, poorly implemented.

      Not compatible with newest MacBook 2016 Power Adapters!

      If you have a MacBook Pro 2016 (with or without touchbar) it WON'T fit. Don't bother.

But it didn't fit right, and got stuck on the power brick! I'm now stuck at the airport without a power brick for my computer. It's okay, it's only 15 hours of flights.......
