If you are a mobile worker you'll know the age-old problem of finding power. Combine that with what seems to be a growing number of devices that need a regular charge and - come the end of the day - your laptop quickly starts to look like an octopus.

In steps the PlugBug, a new gadget from Twelve South that fits on your Apple charger to give you a USB socket in which to charge your iPad or your iPhone at the same time via a more powerful wall charger.

Costing $35 in the US, a UK version is due to be launched this summer and will cost £25.
