This one does more than just use it for power - and operates differently on-screen. The moment you plug it in the Explora operates almost as if it has built-in WiFi.

With the previous connector you had to set it up separately to work with a specific WiFi - and then connect it to your Explora. This one comes up with a list of all available wiFi networks on your TV screen (just like your phone would when connecting to wifi) and you can choose - and easily change - wifi networks, enter the password etc.
