Packaging

Little information is available on the front of the package, but we do get a good glimpse of the unit and can see that plenty of passive ventilation is present.

The left half of the back goes over the efficiency of the unit and DC to DC regulation.

The other half gives us a shot inside the unit, claims super tight voltage regulation and silent operation.

One side is void of any information while the other provides us with some features and the I/O specifications of the power supply.

Both top and bottom are the same and feature no additional information.
