  • Overview

    The Twelve South PlugBug World is an ingenious device that creates a dual charger and international power adapter using your existing MacBook power adapter. PlugBug World allows you to power up your MacBook and iPhone or iPad/iPad mini from one outlet, in any major country, using one of five included international plugs.

    Use PlugBug World locally to charge your MacBook and iPhone at the same time from one outlet. When you travel, put PlugBug World in your bag and you have one charger that can be used to power two devices pretty much anywhere. PlugBug World also works as an international USB charger for iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini.

    The powerful 10-watt PlugBug World can charge your iPad up to four times faster than your MacBook and will charge an iPad mini two times faster than the factory charger.

    PlugBug World piggybacks onto all MacBook power adapters. Clear out all of the extra cables and chargers in your bag and replace them with one bright red PlugBug World.

      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.

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!

      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.

      Works in Europe, But Caution

      I am rating this a 2 for very specific reason, it does not have a grounding connection on the adapters. I went to Zurich, Switzerland, Athens & Crete, Greece I am rating this a 2 for very specific reason, it does not have a grounding connection on the adapters. I went to Zurich, Switzerland, Athens & Crete, Greece recently(March/April 2015), at all 3 locations, my macbook "buzzed" when I was touching it while charging This is 100% due to no grounding in the plug bug. I replaced the plug bug with a long cable that has the european connector with grounding and the buzz went away. The USB worked well, however, my iPhone experienced the same buzz as my mac did while charging both at the same time. This is an expensive adapter to not have grounding. I do NOT recommend purchasing. Make sure whatever you buy has a grounding connector. Looks like a square metal spring tab at edge of european plug.

      Don't bother

      This product is made of inferior plastic, it is bulky, and the USB plug never did work well.
