NEW PRODUCTS – EL Flowing Effect Wire with Inverter – Blue, Green or Pink – 2.0 meter (6.5 ft)

NEW PRODUCTS – EL Flowing Effect Wire with Inverter – Blue, Green or Pink – 2.0 meter (6.5 ft). If you want to make your EL project a little more dynamic, you can swap in this nifty ‘flowing effect’ EL wire for the every-day stuff. Instead of a single core, this wire is actually a bundle of three thin EL wires. Inside the inverter is a little timer that will cycle through the strands to make it look like its moving. There’s a wheel to adjust the speed and a button to select the mode. The three modes are ‘all on’, ‘all off’ and ‘flow effect’.

This pack comes with 2 meters of EL flow wire attached to a 2xAA inverter, use any AA batteries (alkalines are better and brighter but it works fine with NiMH rechargeables). There’s a belt clip on the inverter so you can attach it to something.

This EL type isn’t meant to be cut and re-soldered because of the triple-core so keep in mind that you can cut it short but we don’t suggest trying to splice or re-solder to the wire. Runs for about 5 hours off of two AA batteries.

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 flow wire will not match the regular EL wire, EL tap or EL panel exactly, they all will be slightly different colors.

  • 2 meter long EL cord, 3mm thick
  • Flow effect can go as slow as 30 Hz

In stock and flowing.

  1. Will you be selling these strands without the inverter? I’d like to just get two of them and connect them to six channels of an El Escudo Dos.

  2. @sparr, the strands are not sold without the inverter.
