  • Certainly *NOT* EL!

    Er, cheap, you certainly won't be able to shock yourself on it.


    Ok, so these are clearly not EL in any way. EL means "Electro-Luminescent", a technology which uses a layer of crystals over a conductive substrate, and a transparent conductive top coat. A special high frequency, high voltage power supply then makes all the materials glow beautifully.
    This is not that. This is a bit of clear plastic wire, which attaches to a little LED-in-a-box.
    Don't buy this if you are expecting a cheap source of EL wire!
    I just bought 5, waited months for delivery, and they are tat.
    Oh, and the LED isn't even very bright.


    My plan was to sew these into a jacket. That's not going to work, and you'd not see it unless totally dark.


    Don't buy this, it is mis-described.
