The Cobra CPP 50

The ultraportable CPP 50 is the smallest of the three chargers. It is not a solar-powered charger and relies only on its internal 5,000mAh battery.

The Cobra CPP 100

CPP 100 is made out of plastic and is relatively lightweight. It has solar panels on one side, and features a battery indicator and a narrow green handle up top so it can be attached easily to your backpack or bag.

More panels, more power

This body design increases its ability to draw in solar power, shortening the amount of time it takes to charge itself.

Triple the charging

The device is decked out with two USB outputs, as well as two attached cables for a USB and MicroUSB connection, meaning that it can charge up to three handsets at a time.

Cords that tuck in

When not in use, the cords tuck neatly into the body of the device. The 100 and 300 will be available in February and will cost $49.95, and $79.95, respectively. In April, the CPP 50 will go on sale for $39.95.
