PlugBug World

Have a USB-C MacBook? You need a PlugBug.


The USB-C MacBooks are the best laptops out there, but the loss of standard USB ports can make it difficult to charge your iPhone, wireless headphones and other peripherals on the go. By adding PlugBug World to your MacBook power adapter you immediately gain back a standard USB-A port that allows you to charge your MacBook AND iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch at the same time (and without dongles!). This 2.1-Amp USB wall charger piggybacks onto your MacBook Power Adapter, creating a one-of-a-kind, dual charging unit that means you don't need an extra dongle to convert USB-C to USB! As an added bonus, PlugBug World's five international snap on plugs give you power no matter where you roam.

PlugBug World FAQs

Is PlugBug World compatible with all MacBook models?

PlugBug World is compatible with all Apple MagSafe Power Adapters, and with the Apple USB-C Power Adapter for the 12-inch MacBook. However, it is not compatible with the 2016 MacBook Pro models.

Will PlugBug World fit my older MacBook Power Adapter?

PlugBug World fits all current AND previous MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Power Adapters. It even fits other Apple products like the Apple Battery Charger, Airport Express, iPad Charger and even older Apple USB Chargers - anything that uses the white removable 'duck-head' part for its power plugs - PlugBug World fits!

I have the original PlugBug? Is there a kit I can buy to upgrade my PlugBug to a PlugBug World?

No. Since the plug on the original PlugBug (strictly for the US, Canadian, and Japanese outlets), is not removable, it cannot be interchanged with the international plugs of PlugBug World.

Very quick service.

We’re planning a trip to Ireland and I wanted to make sure everybody had a converter for their cell phones. I placed the order with Twelve South, and I had it within two days.

Very efficient thank you

Very good

It is small enough to carry with you and not bulky is you are planning a trip abroad.. the material seems cheap.. not as it looks on the picture.. it is transparent red , I will see if it is long lasting when I tray it on a 220V plug.
