NEW PRODUCTS – EL Wire Coin Cell and 1xAAA Mini Inverter

1350_LRG

NEW PRODUCTS – EL Wire Coin Cell and 1xAAA Mini Inverter – Really tiny portable inverters for EL wire. These power off of a single CR2032 coin battery or a single AAA battery (not included!), and can drive up to 50cm / 20 inches of our high-brightness EL wire or 10cm x 1cm long piece of EL tape for 3 hours (or longer if the EL wire is less than 50cm long).

The 1xAAA Mini Inverter has a switch on the side for selecting steady/blink/off modes and comes with a 2.5mm pitch female JST connector.

Like all inverters we’ve used, the 2000 Hz oscillation is slightly audible. To connect a piece EL wire to this, you’ll want a male connector wire if it isn’t already attached.

Soldering to EL wire is a little tricky but luckily we wrote a detailed step-by-step tutorial!

  1. Thanks Jeff, I can see that the soldering WILL be a little awkward, as you suggest, in which case your tutorial will be great for someone with my skill levels!
