Defeat the Wall Warts With PlugBug
CREDIT: Twelve South
Standardized USB power adapters are a great thing. Too bad they only work with one device at a time. If you own a Mac, an iPhone and iPad and are itching to charge more than one, Twelve South’s PlugBug is the thing for you.
It’s a 10-watt adapter that fits on top of a typical Mac power plug. It allows for two devices and the extra wattage means they’ll charge in the same time. It can also act alone. At $34.99 it’s not a bad deal and no more expensive than many other wall warts. It can also work on its own, if you’re only charging one device. (It also takes up less space).
