Packaging

In typical fashion, this SteelSeries product also comes in black paging with bright orange trim. A clear plastic outer packaging is used to allow the FREE to sit visible at the top. This leaves the bottom to house the goodies as it is covered with the naming, device compatibility list, Bluetooth connectivity, and the ten plus hours of time offered on a single charge for heavy gaming.

The right side offers very little other than a view of the side of the FREE, since the panel at the bottom only offers the SteelSeries logo.

The back offers a rendering of the FREE as it would wirelessly connect to the devices shown. The image to the right offers three features that are listed first in the multilingual lists of six features that take up the bulk of this panel.

The left side of the packaging offers a view of the controller at the top, but we had to lay it on its face to orient the sticker displaying the specifications in a readable manner. It uses Bluetooth 2.1, offers ten or more hours on a single charge of the Lithium ION battery with just a two hour charge, and concludes with a compatibility list.

This is one location to reference the serial number, and it is also on the back of the FREE. We also see that this product was designed in Denmark, but is made in China.

So that the FREE isn't left to be so free in the packaging, there is this three sided plastic inner package. It keeps the FREE in one place at the top of the box, and acts as a buffer if the packaging is dropped. All of it worked well together inside of a cardboard box to get here, and allowed the FREE to arrive in perfect condition.
