The Dark Beret 1000W is packaged in a somewhat large-sized black box, with very little supporting information printed on the exterior of box; it is an exercise in minimalism, though it’s difficult to tell if this is a good thing or not for the average consumer.  Inside the box, the Dark Beret itself and accessories are packaged very well and snug, with no worries about damage.  Included is a manual, screws, zip ties, and a storage bag to be used for storing excess cables. A very complete package here, no question.
