Shipping packages of tech with varying dimensions and weight can mean a lot of money in shipping costs, so for various purposes like shipping, packing and transportation to/from repair, I'd like to know the size (within 2cm on each axis) and weight (within 100 grams total) of the items in Valve Index box unpacked:
- Valve Index headset
- Knuckle controllers
- Base stations
- Cable and breakout box
- (possibly something else required to set up the whole kit to play that isn't listed)
Valve's official store and information pages don't have any information on that. Wikipedia page has only the headset weight referencing gaming news sites. I haven't found reviews weighing anything other than the headset though.
Steam support responded with this:
The shipping weight of the Valve Index kit is approximately 6kg. We cannot give you a more precise answer than this [...]
That is unfortunately not precise enough and doesn't line up with other weight measurements, seems to be an outlier for some reason. I'll post an answer when I get it, I suppose.
