Canadian Office Products Association Honors Cobra Tag With Most
Innovative Product Award of Excellence & People's Choice Award for
Best New Office Product of the Year 
CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 --  Cobra Electronics
Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of
award-winning mobile and consumer electronics, today announced that
Cobra Tag(TM), a personal loss prevention alarm for protecting
valuables, has been recognized by the Canadian Office Products
Association (COPA) with two outstanding awards -- the Most Innovative
Product Award of Excellence and the People's Choice Award for Best
New Office Product of the Year. COPA is the leading representative of
Canada's office products retailers and manufacturers. Products
entered in this awards program were evaluated by the COPA Awards
Committee in several product categories. 
The Cobra Tag is an innovative alarm and loss prevention system for
protecting smartphones and other personal items. This system pairs
the free Cobra Tag smartphone app with a small, brilliantly designed
key fob device via Bluetooth(R) that can be attached to any valuable
such as car keys, a briefcase, luggage or a purse to be protected
from theft or accidental loss. The device has a two-way notification
system that moni
tors the distance between both items and produces an
audible alert to the owner when the valuable item or the smartphone
is being left behind. Cobra Tag also includes a handy feature that
allows the owner to tap a button on the Tag device to force the
smartphone to ring, and a similar function on the smartphone's app to
make the Tag unit ring. If the items become separated, the Cobra Tag
app records the GPS location and time and day of the event and sends
this information to a pre-configured contact list via email, text or
social media account.  
"COPA is a highly respected authority and a powerhouse in the office
products industry, so all of us at Cobra are proud to accept these
two highly prestigious awards," said Sally Washlow, senior vice
president of marketing and sales for Cobra. "As we all know, it's
almost impossible to place a value on the true cost of losing and
trying to replace a smartphone, purse or laptop and the associated
contents, and consumers and organization like COPA across North
America are clearly acknowledging that the small cost of Cobra Tag is
miniscule in comparison to the value this breakthrough system
