  • Great EL wire

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Cool blue glow. Light is uniformly bright across the entire surface and, being electroluminescent, is truly omnidirectional.
    - Good and flexible, can be sewn into fabric (Tron costume!)
    - 12V inverter can be powered from a small 23A battery.

    Cons:

    - Transformer is fairly bulky, but I believe this is necessary to drive the EL wire.
    - Not really a con, but it would be nice to have an SKU with a 3V inverter so we could run these off two AA batteries.

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought three of these to get 9 metres. All three work fine. When driven from a small 23A battery, the inevitable squeal from the inverter is barely audiable. It might be louder if connected to a car alternator.

    Bottomline:

    A great buy.
