Mobile and navigation accessories manufacturer Cobra Electronics announced a bevy of new products today, which it plans to demo next week during CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

Two of the devices include the Cobra AirWave Mini and AirWave Box (pictured above). Unlike the original AirWave , which we saw at CTIA 2013, these gadgets not only receive audio via a Bluetooth connection, but play it as well.

The Mini will be available in February for $39.99 and features a rugged, weatherproof design. The Box also has a durable construction with a soft-touch rubber exterior, but it can be fully dunked underwater as well. It will go for $79.99 and will be available in March. 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.

In contrast, the CPP 300 features an LCD battery status indicator, as well as USB and Micro-USB outlets and built-in outlet plugs. Users can purchase the portable CPP 100 and CPP 300 starting in February for $49.95 and $79.95, respectively.

Another product that the company plans to demo is the JumPack, an emergency powerpack with a built-in flashlight. Set to launch in April for $129.95, the JumPack can jump-start car batteries, as well as smartphones and other electronic devices. 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.
