Twelve South PlugBug World was announced beginning this year and I have no idea why is it not selling in Singapore yet, not even the Apple Online Store in Singapore.
When Li Xiang went to Hong Kong last week, she bought it for me from the Apple Store in IFC Mall, Hong Kong. It is retailing for HK$348 (S$60). Li Xiang also mentioned that the Twelve South PlugBug World is not displayed on the shelves and you might need to request the store assistant to get it from their storeroom.
I got my first Twelve South PlugBug Charger when I was in Las Vegas, US last year but because the plug is meant to be used in US/Canada/Japan, I can’t really use it out of the box in Singapore without an adapter.
I think Twelve South got lots of request to make the Twelve South PlugBug international and hence Twelve South PlugBug World was borned.
