Before you buy that international plug kit for your trip abroad this summer to Europe, you might want to consider the PlugBug World. If you recall, I told you about the first PlugBug, which added a USB plug to any Macbook power adapter and effectively gave you more power bang for your buck.
Clearly you can charge your 5V devices via any Macbook computer’s USB slot, but at that power rating you’ll be waiting two-fold for a tablet to charge. However, if you’ve got a dedicated plug or battery that puts out 2.1 amps, as with the PlugBug, you can charge your iPad two times as fast and not take up a USB slot on your Macbook Air or Pro. And now with the newest version, the PlugBug World, you can take your Macbook’s power adapter across the globe as it includes adapters for US/Canada/Japan, Continental Europe, UK/Hong Kong/Singapore, China, and Australia/New Zealand.
The PlugBug World sells for $44.99. That’s $5 more than Apple’s World Travel Adapter Kit
