Pros & Cons
The Cobra CPI 480 is a 12-Volt DC to 120-Volt AC power inverter that provides 400 Watts of power handling and 800 Watts of peak power. This inverter can be connected to the car battery or directly into the cigarette lighter socket. This product comes with a cigarette lighter plug.
According to most reviewers this inverter works well with small devices like laptops, phones, iPods, cordless tools, Christmas lights, etc. Cigarette lighter socket works great when using for loads less than 150W. Using battery cables also gives perfect charge. Reviewers also like the USB output that is used to charge phones, iPods, laptops, etc.
It is recommended to use direct battery connection (instead of cigarette lighter socket) with load over 150Watt. In few cases there was problem with load more than 150W. Few reviewers also complained having received bad units or units went bad within few months of use. Some reviewers also praised technical support provided by the company.
