In this 2021 Cobra Libre 2 review you’ll learn exactly what to expect from Fun Factory male vibrator, if it works, and the best alternatives. Read on:
It says a lot about a sex toy when it’s been around for a long time.
Well, the original Cobra Libre by FunFactory pretty much invented the concept of vibrators for the penis. Needless to say, it was a smash hit, and now vibrators for men are commonplace.
So when FunFactory came out with the Cobra Libre II, it had a lot more competition.
But how does it hold up now that there’s a ton of competition?
Let’s find out! TL;DR:
Deep, rumbly vibrations? Check. High-quality silicone? Check. Light, portable and long-lasting? Check. Easy to clean? Check.
As specialist toys for your glans go, the Cobra Libre II does everything right. It even fixed the most significant problem the original had — it has convenient buttons now instead of a silly touchpad. Add to that the increased settings, and we have a winner.
The Not So Good
It only comes in one size and is designed around the average penis. If you’re a lot bigger or smaller than average, then it might not be the best choice for you.
It can get pretty noisy on the higher settings, so if you plan on bringing it traveling in a cheap motel with thin walls, maybe put a pillow over it.
Finally, it’s not the most versatile toy out there. If you want something that does more than vibrate the penis head, then choose one of the alternatives mentioned in the end.
The Bottom Line
If you like penis head vibrators, this is your jam. The Cobra Libre does a few things and does them very well — it’s not a versatile jack of all trades. It’s a specialty toy for a particular kind of experience.
If you like that experience, the Cobra Libre is one of the best in this price range.
Cobra Libre II is for you if:
- You like vibrations around your whole glans
- You enjoy powerful stimulation
- You like playing when hard or soft
Cobra Libre II might not be for you if:
- You prefer strokers
- You want whole shaft sensations
- You want something with many different uses

My First Impressions Of Cobra Libre II
The first thought I had when I saw it was, “Huh. It looks exactly the same as the old one.”
That’s not a bad thing. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? The Cobra Libre is supposedly designed after the legendary AC Cobra sports car from the 60s, and it has the same elegant curves and sweeping lines. It’s a pretty little toy.
My second, much happier thought once I took it out of the box was, “Oh, HELL YEAH! IT HAS PROPER BUTTONS!”
Seriously, the touchpad from the last Cobra Libre was easily the worst thing about it. So g*ddamn fiddly, I went crazy just trying to increase the settings or switch it back on.
So yes. Buttons. Low tech is sexy too, sometimes.
The Cobra comes with a magnetic charging cable, so there’s no need to fiddle around trying to get the USB in. I always break my USB cables, so it’s nice not to have to worry about it.
Let’s Talk About Cobra Libre’s Specs
Here are the main numbers:
|Weight||301 g / 10.6 oz|
It’s small, light, and very discreet – all good features in a masturbator. The internal sleeve is a soft, flexible silicone that feels great on the skin.
Its compactness means it’s very portable and good to travel with. The only downside is that because of the small diameter, larger gentlemen might find it a squeeze.
Materials And Electronics
|Body-safe?||Yes, medical grade silicone|
|Charging port?||USB rechargeable|
|Battery life?||40 – 120 minutes|
The original Cobra Libre was one of the first penis vibrators and was already made of body-safe silicone. This shows how forward-thinking FunFactory were.
It’s the same again with the CL2 — the parts that your penis touches are all totally non-porous and body-safe. That’s a lifesaver, considering how much you’ll want to use it!
Design: The Look And Feel
The Cobra Libre was designed with both fashion and function in mind. That’s always a gamble when it comes to sex toys, as you can often end up with a dope-looking toy that disappoints on the business end.
But FunFactory NAILED IT. It looks good and fits perfectly in my hand no matter which way I’m using it. Even just holding it is satisfying.
It comes in black or red and black. I like the red version more, but they’re both sleek and handsome.
And because it’s so light and ergonomic, it’s comfortable to hold for even long periods of time.
I’ve used it for edging many times and found that I could hold it for easily an hour without my hands getting tired, unlike many of the heavier toys.
Cobra Libre’s Key Functionality
11 patterns and speeds is a lot. There’s plenty to get through and plenty more to experiment with: 2 slow and sensual “training modes”, 3 steadily increasing constant vibrations, 3 that go up and down, and 3 that go wild.
It has two motors for extra rumbliness: one that hits right on the frenulum and another that seems to come from all directions. It vibrates the outside too, making it fun for couples’ play.
It’s fully waterproof too, so you can take it in the bath or shower. I always recommend taking a submersible toy in the bathroom to see if it hits different, and for the Cobra Libre II, it’s a definite yes. The underwater vibrations are wavier and more sensuous while still being very powerful. Good times.
Cleaning is pretty easy – just rinse it out with warm water and soap and leave to dry. The wide opening means it dries quicker than many toys, so it’s ready to go again whenever you are!
How To Use Cobra Libre II
First things first: gotta charge it up. The Cobra Libre II requires 8-12 hours the first time you charge it, and about 2 hours every time after that. So it’s not something you can just take out of the box and go to town with, but it’s worth the wait.
It might only be for the glans, but that doesn’t mean the Cobra Libre II is a one-trick pony. It actually works well as a solo or couples toy. Let’s see just how well:
The most common way I’ve used it is alone when I’m already hard. I find it’s best to apply the lube to myself rather than the toy itself, but it’s fine either way.
Then you simply get to work by pressing the FUN button. It starts off on a medium setting, so you can go up or down using the +/- buttons.
It works well whether you’re hard or soft. I like to mix it up and use it both ways, and I’ve found that even if I’m soft, it feels great.
Pro Tip: It’s a nice toy for anyone who has trouble on the erection front.
For Couples’ Play
If you are a straight couple, you can use the vibrations to stimulate you both as one of the motors vibrates the outside plenty. It’s not Magic Wand levels of power but it adds a fun dimension to foreplay.
Using it to grind and vibrate is hot for everyone involved.
It would also work great for pegging or gay men. Just put the Cobra Libre on your penis while you have your prostate worked on for the ultimate reach around!
The first time I used this toy I thought it was going to be just like the others, but I found a good seating position and perfect toy setting… OMG! It didn’t take long and before I knew it I had exploded all over my new toy.LavaLampGeek (Reddit)
Cobra Libre VS Cobra Libre II: What Changed?
I’m not sure which I was more pleased with — the new buttons or the improved motors.
Let’s start with the buttons. This is the only change to the outside design that I could see.
They make a huge difference! Gone are those woeful days of wiping my hands off with a towel, Cobra Libre 1 on my cock, trying to get my fingers dry enough to be able to change the setting on that silly unresponsive touchpad.
Now I just press a button, feel the tactile feedback and know that it’s worked. It’s a simple change, but often it’s the simplest things that make the most difference in how I feel about a toy.
On to the motors, which is the real showstopper upgrade. The original Cobra Libre wasn’t a weak toy, but I remember turning it up to the highest setting and thinking “this is nice but I wish it had a bit more oomph to drag me over the finish line.”
Well, FunFactory must have read my mind because they added a bit more oomph. And a bit more. And a bit more on top of that. Damn this thing is strong.
And it’s not just power. At the highest setting, the vibes have a wavey, earthquake feel to them like it’s rolling the glans around in its mouth.
I wouldn’t call the Cobra Libre a blowjob simulator, but… have you ever had someone suck you off who could move their tongue really fast?
…Can I have their number?
Oh right, the Cobra Libre. The higher settings reminded me of that.
Add to that the new and improved vibration modes, an improved magnetic charging port and travel lock, and it’s a real winner. 🎉
Suffice to say, I enjoyed the first Cobra Libre, but it didn’t break into my roster of toys that I regularly use for my pleasure.
But the new one? It went right on the shelf, and I use it a good few times a month when I’m craving that sweet, sweet head vibration.
Now, Where To Buy Cobra Libre 2?
You can pick up a Cobra Libre II from FunFactory itself.
It’s $130, which isn’t cheap, but as with any sex toy, you get what you pay for. The original Cobra Libre is so durable that some guys have used theirs since it first came out – 10 years!
So that’s $13 per year of use. Suddenly it doesn’t seem so expensive.
More Versatile Alternatives
Hot Octopuss Pulse Solo has pulsing vibrations that feel quite different from the normal kind. You can stroke it or just leave it on your frenulum to work its magic, and I like having that choice.
Check out our review to learn more about the Pulse.
If you enjoy FunFactory’s powerful vibrations but want something you can use in more different ways, take a look at their Manta. It works a bit like a Magic Wand but with added flaps to encircle and stimulate.
I love the Manta because you can use it in so many different ways, both alone and with a partner. Obviously, it’s not as specialized, but if you like to move your toys around and play in different ways, the Manta is an outstanding choice.
Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades, style and good sex toy design is eternal.”
Okay, so maybe I’m misremembering the quote, but it’s still true. The Cobra Libre has stuck around so long because of its good design that’s well made and gives plenty of orgasms.
