A small, portable inverter for EL wire with an audio input! This inverter has a little microphone and will light the connected EL according to the surrounding audio volume. Makes for an easy reactive project.
This inverter requires 6V input (it works great with our 4xAA battery holder) and it can drive 2-3 meters (7 to 10 feet) of our high-brightness EL wire OR 1 meter (3 feet) of EL tape OR a 10cmx10cm piece of EL panel continuously for about 21 hours (off of 4xAA's).
There is a switch for selecting steady/sound/off modes - steady is 'always on'. Comes with a single 2.5mm pitch female JST connectors, standard for all the EL wire and tape we carry. There's also two power wires, you'll need to connect these to a 6VDC power source. The white striped wire goes to +6V, the plain black wire goes to ground.
You can plug any of our EL wire/tape into this inverter directly. To connect a 'raw' piece EL wire to this, you'll want a EL wire couch video too!
Soldering to raw EL wire is a little tricky but luckily we wrote a detailed step-by-step tutorial! The tutorial also covers a lot of information about EL and how it works.
