    Any particular reason for the concern?

    BPA is used to impart the unbreakable, shatter proof property to the polymers/ plastics.Only polymers with recycle codes 2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE), 5 (PP) and a few 7 (proprietary resins) don't have BPA content. Others plastic types (including most code 7 polymers) might or might not have BPA depending on the manufacturer.

    You can check the Passport's SIM/ SD Card slot cover for the code. The whole plastic body should be of the same plastic.

    Hey, heavy is a great thing, so you will not dare to tell to my face that it is too square or too big, lol.

    I'm sure there is. Along with lots of other toxic materials. Just don't put it in your mouth. Would it even fit?

    Most likely there is either BPA or phthalates in the back cover. Phthalates are actually worse than BPA - they're hormone mimics, and like real hormones, they go through the skin.

    The other plastic components aren't soft enough to contain BPA. Maybe the SIM card. Get a leather case and stop worrying.

    If you were aware of all the things that you should be concerned about, you'd probably go insane or kill yourself. Don't sweat the small things in life.

    Actually I am finding the weight to be spot on, feels like I am holding a quality device. I think tech is getting too light and fragile.

    You don't need worry about that.

    BPA in PET water bottles and aluminium can's inner lining should be a much bigger concern for everyone.
