Packaging and Contents

BitFenix has packaged the Alchemy 2.0 Magnetic LED-Strip in a straightforward easy to open transparent blister pack. The blister pack isn’t heat sealed, and is easy to pop open. Contained in the blister pack are: the LED Strips, the MOLEX pass through DC Adapter, a bridge that allows you to connect multiple strips together, a single double-sided card that serves as advertising for the product, a spec-sheet, and a minimalist set of instructions and warnings.

Frankly, while the packaging is minimalist in the extreme, it is truly well thought out and seems to perform its various purposes well.

The core of the packaging is the card. The base color on the front and back of the card is the color of the LEDs in the strip, and each card is also clearly labeled in a large font as to the contained LED Color. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a somewhat random flame-like “digital” pattern that is placed behind each LED Strip and the adapter blister also in the color of the strip.

The back of the card presents a few photos that present the strips in use, and show the bridge and MOLEX pass through assembly. There’s also a close-up of an individual LED.

As you can see, BitFenix sent us all 5 colors currently available: White, Blue, Red, Purple and Green. Purple is new to the Alchemy 2.0, having replaced Orange in the original Alchemy product line-up.

OK enough about the packaging then. Let’s get on with it!
