The folks at Twelve South have just announced the PlugBug Duo, a new and improved version of the original PlugBug World. It's available to order right now for $49.99 from Amazon and Twelve South's own site. Not familiar with what the PlugBug is meant to do? Well, the concept is simple. You add this accessory to your MacBook charging brick and it adds some USB ports and the ability to quickly swap out world adapters for charging while traveling. If you take your MacBook on the go with you, this is an absolute must-have accessory.
With the PlugBug Duo, Twelve South has added another full-size USB port to the adapter, now giving you access to two of them. You can use these ports to charge your iPhone, AirPods, and other accessories without tying up any ports on your computer. It comes with five different snap-on plugs to convert the power supply to work in Japan, Hong Kong, UK, Continental Europe, China, Australia, and New Zealand.
The best part about this accessory is that it looks like it's built right into your charging brick. The PlugBug fits nicely with Apple's hardware, and Twelve South does an amazing job of designing its accessories to look and feel like premium add-ons. If you don't need the extra USB port that the PlugBug Duo offers, you can pick yourself up a PlugBug World for $20 less right now at Amazon, which is the lowest it's ever sold for. You could also just grab a set of world adapters and a USB-C power bank for an even more portable solution for your world travels.
