583 - EL wire starter pack - Blue 2.5 meter (8.2 ft)


A little bundle to get you started! This project pack contains:

  • 2.5 meters (over 8 ft) of high-brightness, long-life EL wire in Blue. 2.5 meters is the maximum amount for the pocket driver - it is cut and soldered so its ready to go!
  • Pocket EL inverter runs on 2 AA Alkaline or rechargeable batteries (not included)
  • 2 inches of heat shink, both 1/8" and 1/4" for protecting the EL wire after soldering if you end up wanting to change the wire up
  • 2 inches of copper tape, used when soldering EL wire
  • 2 inches of foam tape, we use this to pad the inside of the inverter to quiet it down

We used this to make our awesome TRON bag

Soldering to EL wire is a little tricky but luckily we wrote a detailed step-by-step tutorial! Youll need wire strippers, a soldering iron and solder, copper tape and heat shrink. A third-hand tool is really useful as well.

Please note! EL tape, EL wire and EL panel are made with different processes - the color and brightness will not be consistent between the different types of EL products. The EL tape will not match the EL wire or EL panel exactly, they all will be slightly different colors.
