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 yellow. 2.5 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, Adafruit use this to pad the inside of the inverter to quiet it down

Adafruit used this to make Adafruit's awesome TRON bag 

Soldering to EL wire is a little tricky but luckily Adafruit 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

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.
