I discovered it at Hong Kong's Mongkok Computer Centre during a trip in March this year. It's a replacement AC adaptor for the MacBook with a solid 60W output, so you can leave your standard adaptor at home (which I love, because the regular powerbrick now lives in my office and the XPower lives in my tech 'grab-bag'); there's a USB-C socket into which you plug your MacBook (tip: buy a decent and preferably tough USB-C cable so this too can live in your traveltech bag); plus a pair of standard USB sockets rated at 2.4A so they've got the juice to handle tablets and larger smartphones; AND, the cool bit, it includes plugheads for UK, EU and AU sockets, while the 'native' prongs are US (you flip 'em out to connect to a US powerpoint or flip 'em up to accept a plughead adaptor). Current list price is HKD$328, although at MCC mine was HKD$348 – either way you're talking A$60, which I rate as an absolute bargain for all that it does and how it's made my life so much easier!
Oh, if you are in HK and head to MCC or its Wanchai equivalent to pick up one of these chargers, XPower also makes a versatile three-in-one USB cable with Lightning, USB-C and microUSB plugs which might be worth looking for. I grabbed one of these because it replaces three stand-alone cables, works with my iPhone and iPad, and it's very long and nylon-coated, making it practical and durable while on the road. Can't recall the price but it wouldn't have been very much.

It has an interchangeable plug like an iPhone charger and provides 4 USB ports and 2 Australian sockets for items that can't be powered by USB..
