NEW PRODUCT – 12V EL wire/tape inverter

Elinverter12V Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – 12V EL wire/tape inverter. This is an equivalent inverter to our 2xAA type, 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. This inverter can drive up to 250 cm of high-brightness EL wire or 60 cm of EL tape.

In stock and shipping now.

  1. Can it really light more high brightness EL than regular? Or is that backwards? I suppose it’s possible to be both more energy efficient and brighter, but then why bother with regular at all?

  2. @michael, hmm – we are not sure what you are asking “This inverter can drive up to 250 cm of high-brightness EL wire or 60 cm of EL tape.”
