Родной

Родной (adj., m.) - slangy: accessory belonging to something from the very beginning, original packaging, not replaced.

Literally: native, own. Compare: родной брат, родная речь.

Examples:
1. Как носить молокоотсос на работу? В родной коробке неудобно, может быть, есть какие-то специальные сумочки? (How should I take the breast pump with me at work? Its package is not handy, are there any special bags for it?)

2. Купил б/у Нокию, довольно потрепанная, конечно, но батарейка и наушники родные. (I bought a secondhand Nokia, it's really worn, of course, but the battery and the earphones are original.)
