The Freedom Power series products are modular units designed to provide high performance and output, and therefore appeal to hardcore enthusiasts and modders who wouldn’t like to compromise performance over aesthetics. Today we will see if it can compete with some of the other high quality offerings in this sector.

Packaging and Bundle

The Akasa Freedom Power 1000W unit is supplied in a black, sturdy cardboard package. Everything is very carefully packed inside the box and the Styrofoam pieces combined with the sturdiness of the package ought to provide adequate protection during shipping. Aesthetically the package of the Freedom Power is uninteresting, but most of the unit’s technical specifications can be found at the sides and the rear part of the box which is helpful if browsing in a local store.

The bundle contains a typical AC power cable, thumbscrews, a set of cable management straps, a manual and a small pouch for storing the unused modular cables. The modular cables are supplied in a separate plastic box. All of the cables are fully sleeved black and all of the connectors are black as well.
