EL Wire Starter Pack – Red/Orange


EL Wire Starter Pack – Red/Orange




EL Wire, also known as Electroluminescent wire is a stiff wire core coated with phosphor and then covered with a protective PVC sheath. When an AC signal is applied to it, it glows an aqua (blue green) color. You can make it look different colors by changing the coating, for example this is a reddish orange. It looks a little like thin neon. Very bendable, it keeps its shape and you can curl it around your finger. Its an easy way to add some glow to a project, not as bright as LEDs but uses a lot less power!

This kit includes all of the parts to get you up and running – there is 2.5 meters (over 8 ft) of high-brightness, long-life EL wire in Red / Dark Orange, a small EL inverter that runs on 2 AA batteries, heat shrink, copper tape, and some foam tape.
