If you don’t already have a driver, please purchase a suitable one, separately, here.


This ‘Angel Hair’ EL Wire is not only the brightest of all the thicknesses of EL Wire it is also the most malleable and will hold its shape when bent like a kind of neon modelling wire, making it a fun and useful material to work with.

This listing is for Orange and available in these lengths: 10 centimetre and 3 metres.

This EL Wire comes with a standard connector already attached so simply plugs into any EL inverter – this makes it easy to change between coloured wire on the same driver.

By using splitters you can also connect as many strands of the glowing wire to the same driver

el wire and el tape

EL wire has loads of uses

This neon wire looks amazing when decorating the interior or exterior of cars, can be used inside and outside houses and can even be threaded into clothes and hats

This wire can be cut into smaller lengths and attached to another driver

Our drivers can run many strips of wire as long as the total length of the wire is under the drivers maximum capacity

With some care, the EL wire can be attached to speaker wire to make patterns or extend the neon wire over gaps where it isn’t needed

Joining tape and tubing for re-attaching the wire are available from this store

– this is if you want to cut the EL wire and rejoin it or perhaps attach some wire to a different driver

Cutting the wire into the length you choose is simple… but rejoining it takes care and attention.

You will also definitely need some wire strippers

You can happily use the joining tape and heat shrink tubing for a decent join but if the joint is likely to encounter stress (e.g. if it is threaded into clothes that will then be bent and jostle) or if the join may be hard to reach (e.g. behind a panel in a car) then we would advise soldering to avoid future hassle

There are How-tos and a forum on the site to get some great tips
