In addition to the low price, Cobra has been segmented into different variants to meet the specific needs of consumers whether it is the working class looking for instant energy or students burning the midnight oil. Cobra Fit, for example, comes with the ActivBurn technology plus L-Carnitine to burn calories, while Cobra Smart has gingko biloba for instant brainergy.
