EL Driver 12V Input Options:

We have found it is impossible to guess how you will be using our EL Wire, EL Tape and Drivers, so you will see on this website we have tried to give you as many choices as possible.

This driver is no exceptions as it also has a range of power inputs that cover most potential uses, please choose one of these from the dropdown menu:

inverter driver for 5-20m of el wire

maybe you have your own 12V 5.5mm/2.1mm input you want to use, perhaps you will be using one of the 2-way power splitters, or will you be cutting off the connector and using the bare wires?

Whatever your reason, this option gives you just the driver (as in the pic above) – without any external power connectors like the rest of these listed below…

This 3 x 18650 Rechargeable Battery Box will plug straight into the driver. It is fairly large (76mm x 60mm x 19mm) and the leads for the output are 15cm long but will make this EL Driver portable.

These small but powerful Li-ion batteries come in a range of sizes, but for this size of driver it is recommended to use the largest 5000mAh

These Li-ion batteries come with an intelligent charger.


6) Mains Powered

7) 2 way Splitter for 12V Power Input (5.5mm)

2 to 1 splitter for 12v 2.1mm 5.5mm adapter

If you’re thinking of running two of these units off of one power source, then get yourself one of these splitters.

Please note this is a Splitter from the Battery to the Driver, so you would only need one Battery pack for 2 x Drivers.

Most people also use Splitters that come from the Driver to the EL Wire (so you only need 1 x Driver for many EL Wires) – you can get those types of EL WIRE SPLITTERS HERE
