Our friends over at Twelve South sent Cali and I sample PlugBugs a few weeks ago. I instantly thought it was such a great idea that I snapped it onto the power brick that came with my 17″ MacBook Pro. And from that day on I started using it!
The only little problem was that with the PlugBug backpacked onto the 85w power supply from Mac, it was a little big for travel purposes. And although it looked fine, the large power adapter was a little bigger than the PlugBug. However, we just switched over to MacBook Airs, and the PlugBug fits the new smaller power brick like a glove!
There isn’t much to be said about this innovative little power adapter. If you regularly need a USB power charger, why use your laptop when you can go straight to the source? When I travel my phone is always filling up from the PlugBug and I wouldn’t want to do without it.
So if you’ve got an Apple laptop, just head on over to Amazon and pick up a PlugBug for $35. This isn’t one of those decisions you need to over think. Just get it, be done with it, and charge your USB devices till your heart’s content!
