Our take on the Cobra CPI880 by Crutchfield's Jon Paulette
With 800 watts of continuous power, Cobra's CPI880 inverter is the one to have when you want all the comforts of home (or office) with you when you're traveling. It converts your car's battery power, so you can power office equipment and household appliances from your vehicle. You'll have all the power you need to keep up with work or whip up dinner.
This converter can power a blender, a food processor, a small refrigerator, or even many large flat-screen TVs, so it'll come in handy for tailgating. In addition to the two AC outlets, you'll also find a USB output for charging phones, tablets, handheld video games, laptops, and more.
