Great EL wire – Flexible 2-Mode Blue Light EL Strip (DC 12V/3M-Length) Reviews

posted by Trimbonz on 11/12/2012 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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.
