Cobra Libre briefly turns on during charging - I was wondering about that noise for days!

Howells Howells
I had this really weird noise for several days, it came and went then it came back again. It's like someone was drilling in the basement for 1 second at a time. I blamed the neighbours as it woke me up. It went on from 6AM to 10AM every 15 minutes.. When I finally woke up, played with my Cobra Libre and the noise was gone. I couldn't see the connection.

Later I'm just working on my PC then I heard the noise again. I suspected my cat was doing that to something, or the furnace was getting old or the snow was falling through somewhere but none of that was plausible. Then it hit me it was the Cobra Libre!!! It sits in a drawer where I got my charging station and it resonated the things there...

What's more weird is that it actually did that DURING charging. I'd like to know if this is a bug or feature. Maybe to remind me to take it off from the charger as I tend to to overcharge everything. I don't know how long I put it on but it might have been more than 12 hours. And the frequency of "drills" increased over time.

I wish they'd release a Cobra Libre II with no auto-off and no oversensitive buttons that even ghosts can turn on and DURING chargin If you have a Cobra Libre, did this happen to you?

Living with others I would not be too happy if one of my toys started up without me doing it.

Mine does not do what you describe. Also if I remember correctly, it's designed to shut off automatically when you start to charge it.

Then what's wrong with it? Nothing touched the touch panels. How long have you charged it the longest?

I've left it plugged in overnight and not noticed the issue you're describing. However, the Cobra Libres do seem buggy. You may want to try to exchange it if you still can or contact FF.

My unit does the same thing and thought this was normal, further more;

I've had the Cobra Libre for approximately two months. Unfortunately, just recently when I turn the unit on, after about two minutes it turns off. The only way to turn it back on again is to connect the charger and disconnect it, then it will turn back on, but only for about two minutes.

Anyone have any suggestion how I can remedy this problem.

Btw, I was considering buying a second unit, but why should I if there is no assurance this wont happen again.

If you've had it only two months, I think FunFactory would still replace it for you. If you bought it here you can submit a support ticket and they may be able to help you, or you can contact FunFactory directly.

One of the motors has just died.. Contacted EF but it's 3-4 months old already. Dunno what'll happen because shipping it back is troublesome as I'm not in the US.

AFAIK FunFactory wouldn't do anything (but is there a warranty kind of thing?):
