New Product Roundup – September 17th to September 23rd

Another Saturday means another New Product Roundup! Probably the most exciting news this week was our announcement of our flat rate shipping charge dropping to $11.95 for all Canadian Customers – but in addition to that we added a bunch of new products to the shop as well! This week we have some great new EL wire products from SparkFun – just in time to get started with those glowing Halloween projects! We have also added a new 2.5 x 5.5mm DC barrel plug for all of those devices that don’t fit the 2.1mm plug. Let’s go have a closer look!




DC Barrel Plug – 5.5 x 2.5mm

The DC barrel plug is a very common connector; these power connectors are found on just about everything! This DIY plug is great for adding a common connector to the end of wires. The 5.5 x 2.5mm plug is the “larger” version of this common connector – if the 2.1mm version does not fit, this is probably the correct connector.

EL Wire Starter Kit – Blue

This kit includes everything you need to get started with EL wire (even the batteries!). Simply plug in the EL wire to the inverter, add batteries, and turn it on – that’s it!

EL Wire – Purple

EL Wire (electroluminescent wire) is a special wire that emits light when electric current is passed through it. This piece of EL wire is 3 meters long and can be bent / twisted in fairly sharp corners. This specific EL Wire glows a Purple / Blue color. The pre-terminated connection plugs directly into the SparkFun EL Inverter (not included).

EL Wire – Red

Just like the EL wire listed above, this piece of EL wire is 3 meters long and can be bent / twisted in fairly sharp corners. This specific EL Wire glows a Red / Dark Orange color. The pre-terminated connection plugs directly into the SparkFun EL Inverter (not included).

EL Wire – Green

And finally, we also have this really nice 3 meter Green EL Wire. This isn’t the normal Yellow / Green (Lime Green) that most EL wire tends to be; this is actually a very nice medium green! The pre-terminated connection plugs directly into the SparkFun EL Inverter (not included).
