The packaging for the UE Mini Boom box is pretty simple. The speaker comes in a rectangular transparent plastic display box, raised on its side atop a small cardboard platform. The box feels pretty heavy given its tiny size though. Inside the box’s platform is single USB to mini-USB charging cord and a manual. And this device also comes with an Android app and iOS app which one should download after pairing the device to the speaker.
