Now discontinued. 

We are all very sorry to hear that ABLENET has had to discontinue the Powerlink Australian version due to unviability.

Please note we would not be permitted to legally sell the US or UK versions which will continue so you may see them on international web sites.

At the moment there is no product that directly replaces the Powerlink.  There are wireless options but not wired for mains appliances.
