Cobra CPI 2575 2500W Power Inverter
Cobra CPI 2575 2500W Power Inverter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value!I drive a semi for a living so my inverter is vital to my day-to-day activities as well as powering my CPAP machine all night. I needed reliability and Cobra delivers. This same unit would have cost me a hundred dollars more in a truck stop. I was replacing a smaller inverter so installation was easy - even for a Grandma! I HIGHLY recommend Parts-Express to all my driving friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane Saver!A very well made product. Good user manual, clear instructions.I converted my Prius into a (quiet!) home generator using this gutsy, Cobra inverter. It has enough oomph to power fridge, floor fans, lights in several rooms, FiOS internet equipment, entertainment and computer systems, even the wife's hair drier (gotta look good, even in a hurricane!).Note: The Cobra has a built digital volt meter to monitor primary source voltage. It also displays output power in Watts and Kilowatts. It can deliver 2500 watts max. for short periods (maybe 20-30 minutes), but is designed for less continuosly.My Cobra is mounted on the trunk deck near the Prius 12v battery. It gets warm during use. Its own cooling fans cycle on and off as needed, but heat accumulating in the car needs to be ventilated. I remove the tonneau cover, fold down the rear seats and keep the windows down a crack. (Don't run any car, even a PZEV like the Prius in a closed garage; I have an open sided carport).The UPSs (APC brand) on my computer and other home electronic equipment will not latch "on" with the pseudo sine wave voltage from the Cobra, so I bypass them. (The Cobra manual mentions this is likely to happen).In my setup, the emergency home load varies between 80 - 1500 watts - about 400 average. At that rate, the Prius burns about 1 gallon of gas every 24 hours. A very affordable and reliable way to weather the storm.Thanks, Cobra!

I hooked mine up and it has a load pick noise when it's off and goes away. Why it's on it won't give no power to Mt tv or other devices.  What could cause this?
