Got this to put in my little RV. I was looking for something small enough to not draw down
the one battery I have in the Coach. Installed under a cabinet close to the battery and
ran 10 ga wire to it. Plug in the Coach electrical cord to it and turned it on. It will
run a Radio or TV or the Microwave or the Fan in my A/C but not the A/C itself which would
take about a 3000 watt inverter which would drain my battery really fast! I watched TV and
listened to the radio for 2 days and finally ran the battery down running the A/C fan on the
second day. It's a little workhorse. Good for the price too!

The first one died within about 6 weeks. That is not a good sign... but Cobra made good and sent me a new one which has been working flawlessly for > year. I like this unit because the fan is active, not passive. So if you are using it to, say, charge a phone or run a laptop with a charged battery, (e.g. not much current draw) the fan stays off. As a noise-freak, that makes me happy. The power rating seems realistic, unlike two other units I tried. I'm quite happy with it, minus the dead original of course.

Bought this for tailgating at Buffet. I was actually able to hook it up to a lawn tractor battery and power a blender. I wasn't sure if the battery would have enough juice, but it worked great and was much easier to transport than a car or marine battery. Testing at home showed the low voltage alarms and whatnot work very well. I just wish this came with a cigarette lighter cord for those times you're just using it on low-amp devices the way some other inverters do. Also, I agree with some other reviews that the mounting tab locations look like they would make getting the screws in there difficult. I haven't tried mounting it, but the edges of the case definitely would get in the way. Creative DIYers would find a way to make it work, so no big deal.

mine works great. i don't use the wires that it comes with. they are short and thin. i modified my old jumper cables to use with it. i cut the clamps off of one end and permanently attached that to the inverter. now i have big clamps with 12 foot wires for a little more flexibility. i have used it for camping to make coffee and it worked great. i have also hooked up various power tools and those fired right up. (power drill, circ saw). i had my truck running while i was using it only because i was nervous about killing my battery. (we camp out in the middle of nowhere). it's a good little tool, i would recommend it.

As I have learned from previous experience...Cobra makes attractive looking components......UNFORTUNATELY....that old saying of "All show and No go"....Is true to the letter here....

This inverter has no manual override switch or external fuses to reset or replace ..should a fault situation arise....I purchased this unit new from a very repuatable CB shop and it came highly recommended.....

After 1 day of use.....I plugged in my electric shaver (which always ran very effectively hooked to a 175 watt inverter)....The new unit gave off a heated smoke smell and the redc light came on.....no audio warning and the fan quit running....and the unit shut down.....I unplugged the 2 cables thinking it must need to rest without incoming power......No effect....The unit is dead in the water and I am out the price of the unit.....

The shipping cost to send it back for repair is high and not worth risking another failure.

My advice to anybody needing an inverter.......AVOID A UNIT THAT HAS NO MANUAL RESET BUTTON OR EXTERNAL FUSES

and remember......just because something looks impressive....What you see isn't always what you get

COBRA......you need to upgrade your inverter products to be equipped with a reset override and external fuses that can be owner serviced

Used the Cobra CPI 880 800 watt inverter connected to a small solar/battery setup on a shed with no power.It runs a light, small radio,police scanner and a dremel pretty flawlessly. Of course I used a power strip but the inverter did fine. Like previous reviews stated its a little tough to mount this unit because the unit partially blocks the base. But just used some bolt head wood screws versus phillips head. open end wrench tightened them right down to the base. Used 0 gauge battery wire on run from battery. No complaints.

This works great. Hooked it up to the clamps of my portable jump starter (just to test it out) and it ran a box fan high. Than I tried my desktop which is a gaming computer I built. Q6600 quad core overclocked to 3.4ghz 3x500gb raid 0 and 2x1.5tb hard drives. Geforce 8800 superclocked. Its 4 years old give me a break. It ran my desktop from start up to gaming and it was also running my monitor too. After 10 min or so the low voltage alarm came on but remember I was testing it with a portable jumpstarter that wasn't even fully charged. All in all its great. Its sitting in my car next to my amp so I can connect it to my amps power connection when I need to run something big.
