The package of the Toughpower is HUGE and heavier than I expected. If I were in a store lifting this box off a shelf I'd sure have the impression that a quality product is within. The box design has a lot of red for a Thermaltake product, where usually orange is dominant.

Box contents:
  • Power supply unit
  • Cables + Cable bag
  • Power Cord
  • Instruction Manual
  • Screw package
  • Rubber vibration dampener
