Both Bluetooth speakers have a reported music playback time of 10 hours and a standby time of 120 hours.
In addition, Cobra will introduce two reusable solar-powered mobile device chargers, known as the Cobra CPP 100 and CPP 300. While both products have 6,000mAh batteries inside, the former features USB and Micro-USB outlets, and an LED indicator that displays the battery's status.

Another product that the company plans to demo is the JumPack, an emergency powerpack with a built-in flashlight.

It features an LED battery status indicator, a 7,500mAh lithium-cobalt battery, and a USB outlet. It has a 200A starting current and a 400A peak current.
Other products Cobra will introduce at CES that aren't related to mobile technology include the HH450 Dual and CWR 200 radios, the 8500 Pro HD GPS system, and the CXT 1035 walkie-talkie.
