NEW PRODUCT – Sewable EL wire welted piping starter pack – Aqua – 5 meters

Window-73

NEW PRODUCT – Sewable EL wire welted piping starter pack – Aqua – 5 meters (PACK VERSION!) A little bundle to get you started! This project pack contains:

  • 5 meters (over 16 ft) of welted EL wire piping in Aqua. 5 meters is the maximum amount for the pocket driver – it is cut and soldered so it’s 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 EL wire to make our awesome TRON bag

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

In stock and shipping now.
