Last week on the 12th December 2012, eneloop announced two new limited-edition ‘eneloop tones’ rechargeable battery packs. The eneloop uomo for men in enigmatic shades of purple, grey, black and white; and eneloop rouge for women in scintillating hues of pink.
There are 8 glittering AA batteries in each Eneloop Glitter pack and each battery has a capacity of 1,900mAh (1.2V) and can approximately last through 1,800 recharge cycles. The batteries are capable of retaining 70% capacity even after five years of storage.

The PlugBug charger acts as an US travel adapter for your MacBook Pro/Air MacSafe Power Adapter and on top of that it gives you an additional USB port that allows you to charge your iPhone or iPad. I find it super useful for hotels that has limited power sockets. If you prefer not to attached it to your MacSafe Power Adapter, no worries as it can be used as a standalone USB charger.
