UPDATED PRODUCT – 12V EL wire/tape inverter. This is an inverter for EL wire and tape, similar to our pocket inverter, except it is a brick that takes 12V input instead of 2 AA batteries. This means its good for ‘fixed’ installations since you can just plug it into a 12V wall adapter. It’s also good for portable projects where you want to have a big battery pack like a 8xAA holder which will last 4-5 times longer than just 2xAA’s. It is also more powerful, and can drive twice as much EL! Another nice thing about this inverter is it’s a potted brick, so its quieter than the ‘open’ inverter with a switch.
It’s got twice the power of the pocket inverter, you can drive up to 6 meters combined of our high brightness EL wire (20 feet), or 12 meters (40 feet) of plain EL, or up to 100 square centimeters combined of panel/tape – so either a 10x10cm square or 1 meter of 1 cm wide tape.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
