announced a new powerline adapter (TPL-306E) that is about 30% smaller than its predecessor, the TPL-303E series, thus taking up a little less space around the outlet.

A single TPL-306E is $54.99, and a kit with two of the devices is $99.99. Both are available now and have a 3-year limited warranty.
