No need for 3 Power Points
When your PC, monitor and printer together require 3 power points buy
you only have 1 or 2. You can either buy an extension cable costing
$40 or get 2 Cobra Cables for just $4 each. If you have another peripheral,
you simply get another Cobra Cable and connect to your peripheral.
Not limited by 2 Power Points
If your office has 2 power points for your PC and monitor and you want
to bring your own appliance such as a fan or a radio but you have no more
power points, what can you do? You can either spend $40 for an extension
cable or buy a Cobra Cable for $4 to connect your monitor to the PC power
socket. You then free one power point at the wall socket for your
One power point is all you need.
In many offices, there is only one power point and yet you need at
least 2 power points for a PC and monitor. There is no need to waste
$40 for an extension cable. Simply plug in a Cobra Cable between
your PC and monitor and the power cord from the Cobra Cable to the power
point on the wall.
He just bought a Pentium PC with ATX motherboard but to save some money,
he wanted to recycle his former VGA monitor. The problem is that
his old monitor does not have a plug to the power point on the wall.
The power cable is soldered to the monitor and was preiously connected
to the female socket of the old PC. This problem can be resolved
by using a Cobra Cable to connect the PC to the cable of the monitor.
|For PC vendors:
When delivering a PC to a home and after setting up the PC, you realise
that there are not enough power sockets. What can you do? You
need 3 sockets for a PC, monitor and printer. You can either ask
them to buy an extension cable costing $40 or introduce them to Cobra Inside
for just $4. The latter is neater.
|For notebook users.
Ever encounter a scenerio where you need to power up your notebook to
get some work done but do not have any available power point? You
can connect a Cobra Cable from your notebook to a PC to monitor and draw
the power from there. You simply switch off the monitor, remove the
power cord from the monitor, connect the Cobra Cable to the monitor and
your notebook, then re-connect the power cord to the Cobra Cable.
When he carry a notebook and an LCD projector for presentation, he has
to carry an extra extension cable for his notebook and projector.
With a Cobra Cable, he can connect the Cobra Cable from the notebook to
the projector. The power cord then connects to the Cobra Cable.
He does not need an extension cable.
When travelling overseas with your notebook, there is a possibility
that your power cord is not compatible with the power socket of that country.
If you have a Cobra Cable and there is a PC around, you can use the Cobra
Cable to draw power from the PC, monitor or peripheral to your notebook.
|For network administrators.
Having too many hubs, routers, printers etc etc and requiring too many
power points. No problem, you can use Cobra Cables to connect your
devices to the power point in a cascade manner.
|For equipment manufacturers
(eg. printer manufacturer):
Avoid too many power plug standards
Singapore, Malaysia and UK use the 3-pin (flat) power plug. USA
uses the 2-pin (flat) power plug. China uses the 3-pin (angled and
flat) power plug. Indonesia and France used the 2-round pin with
a earth socket continental power plug. When preparing to distribute
the printers worldwide, they have to stock at least 4 different types of
power cords. The boxes have to be packed, sealed and stored separately,
to ensure that the printers are not shipped with a wrong power cord to
One Cobra to reduce inventories
With a Cobra Inside, all these problems are resolved. Since a
Cobra Cable draws its power from the PC power socket which is a standard
worldwide, there is no need to keep stocks of different power plugs.
This saves inventory, storage and administrative costs. Now that
all the packagings are the same with a Cobra Cable inside, the boxes need
not be stored separately and monitored. With Cobra Inside, there
is no possibility of wrongly delivering wrong power cords to different
countries. Inventory is greatly reduced since you need only maintain
inventory of one package instead of 5. Reduced inventory implies
less space, less administration, less monitoring, less confusion and less
Currently printers require a male connector for a power cord because
there are 5 different types of power cord. With a Cobra Inside, they
can do away with the male connector by directly soldering the Cobra Cable
to the printer. This is possible because the Cobra Cable has a standard
connector to PCs worldwide. Direct soldering saves material costs
and packaging/handling costs.
|For the electrically inclined.
If you are familar with electrical works, with some igenuity, you can
create a lot of additional uses for the Cobra Cable. For example,
you can connect the Cobra Cable to an 4-way extension socket and you don't
need a wall plug. Another example, you can replace the female end
of the normal connector to another type of connector while retaining the
Cobra end. The newly attached connector may be able compatible to
your radio, CD or cassette player. Please do not attempt this unless
you are a qualified electrician.
