Powerful iOS Charger and international functionality
on 13 February 2013
I bought this device as I was looking for a faster way to charge my iPad Mini. Anyone with an iPad Mini knows how slow the supplied charger is. That is because it is actually the same charger as supplied with the iPhone - not the more powerful one supplied with full-sized iPads.
The PlugBug is a fair bit more expensive at £40 than the official Apple iPad charger which costs £15, but the PlugBug has the added benefit of full international capabilities. It also allows me to carry only 1 charger when I travel abroad. For these reasons I decided to go for the PlugBug.
I'm very happy with my decision. The PlugBug does charge the iPad Mini and my iPhone more quickly and gives me an extra USB port on my desk.
If you were wondering whether you can use the AC power cord that comes with you Macbook to extend the reach of the PlugBug you'll be pleased to know you can. It doesn't look particularly elegant, which is probably why there aren't any photos, but it works without a problem.
