Yellow! http://www.adafruit.com/products/585

All come with 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) of our high brightness, long life EL wire, a handy 2xAA pocket inverter and a pack of extras like heat shrink, copper tape and foam padding – stuff you’ll want to use if you decide to mod the EL wire.


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.

  1. Why does the White EL Wire look blue in every picture I’ve seen on the Adafruit site? Maybe something to do with your camera (I know how hard this can be)? The reason I ask is that I’m thinking these EL Wires may be useful illuminating objects in macro-photography. Thanks, Drone

  2. They’re not a pure white, the coating is pink to try to neutralize the real aqua color. So it has a blue tint, check the datasheet for wavelengths.

  3. @Drone: I would recommend against using EL lighting for photo work except as a special effect accent light. Their output spectrum is just not suited to rendering a subject well in a (realistic-looking) photograph, and you will be agonizing over (unresolvable) color-balance issues.
