Packaging

The simplistic packaging highlights a few features on the front. LLC Resonant and DC-DC tech are simply ways that power supplies increase efficiency.

There is a nice feature list on the back. Not much is out of the ordinary here except the Zero Voltage Switch. A ZVS allows for reduced energy loss and less heat generated. As is the case, it is typical for less heatsinks to be needed within the unit.

There is also a nice connector list on the back of the packaging. Unfortunately there isn't a list of cable quantity or cable length here with it.

I/O specifications are located on the back as well for those who are curious.

Both top and bottom of the box contain nothing more than a glimpse of the power supply.

The sides are both blank with the exception of Leap's logo. It would be nice to see things a little more spread out and a bit more information available.
