The Cobra Pro 3000W came in a great looking color printed box, with photos and specs of the power inverter. Opening the box revealed a well-protected product held in place by custom molded foam. Materials used in the construction was mostly plastic, with some metal. Quality of materials used, as well as fit and finish, was very good. Also included is the remote controller, power and ground controls, mounting kit, and user guide.


I really like the design of the Cobra Pro 3000W. It’s a professional grade power inverter, with enough power to run just about anything. And the remote controller simplifies it’s use. Through the controller you can not only monitor the inverter, it also has fast charge ports. You can quick charge smaller devices such as smartphones or tablets.


While the remote controller adds some great useability, the brawn of the inverter is in the main body. It included 4 GCFI outlets, an LED display and comes with 2-gauge power and ground cables. That should tell you most of what you need to know about the Cobra Pro 3000W. It packs a punch. 3000 watts continuous, or 6000 watts peak. That’s enough to power just about anything. Appliances such as a microwave, fridge, or even power tools. No wonder it’s called professional grade!


For the installation, the user guide was easy to follow. Not all owner’s manuals are easy to read and follow. This one was. Installation was rather straight forward, and simple. Now that’s it’s installed, let’s see how it performs.


There’s not a whole lot to the Cobra Pro 3000W. The large red LED next to the outlets showed the voltage of my truck’s battery. The remote controller in blue LED showed both the input voltage from the battery, as well as the output in watts. The remote controller worked great at charging my smartphone. And the inverter had no problem powering a saw, and an impact wrench. When all is said and done, that’s probably the best compliment that can be given: that it performed as advertised. And that’s just what the Cobra Pro 3000W did.


Sometimes we need power on the go. Some of us may need more power than others. And it’s smart to be prepared for what you may need, and the Cobra Pro 3000W will have you covered. Based on its design, features, quality and performance, the Cobra Pro 3000W has earned our Editor’s Choice Award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at
