Express 4K and 4K+

I have heard that you can purchase a micro USB ethernet adaptor for these new devices for a hard wired connection. Is this true and how would you connect it since there is only 1 port for the micro USB power?

The same way they do it with the Fire TV Stick. The Ethernet adapter has a power connection and it passes the power through the USB connection to the Stick, along with the network connection. USB is quite versatile.
