Packaging and Bundle

The Fusion is the first PSU we have seen supplied in a plastic packaging instead of a cardboard box. The packaging is not very thick but feels strong therefore it ought to be safe during transportation. Some of the product’s features can be seen at the front of the package, while the unit itself is clearly visible through the sides and rear of the plastic box. You will find a small manual, 4 black mounting screws, an AC power cable and a sticker with the company logo supplied with the Fusion.
