PlugBug alters MacBook adapter to power 2 devices

Twelve South picked Tuesday to unveil a unique add-on to help Apple fans that travel with more than one device. PlugBug takes advantage of the changeable connector on a MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro AC adapter to add a 10W USB charger. The add-on can charge anything up to the power levels of an iPad and is seen as a way to charge the tablet, an iPhone, an iPod, or other USB hardware without having to remember all the cables or charge through the MacBook.

The adapter doesn't have to slot into the AC brick to work and has a cap to cover the exposed area. Twelve South imagines it as a substitute for those outside of North America who want a converter.

PlugBugs are already on sale and ship for $35 through the company's own online store.
