EL Driver Options:

We have found it is impossible to guess how you will be using the 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 exception as it also has a range of power inputs that cover most potential uses, please choose one of these from the dropdown menu:


5 mode sequencer for 5m 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?

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…


2) Crocodile Clips

Perfect if you already have your own 12V battery to run this driver


3) 8xAA Battery Box


This 8xAA Battery Box will plug straight into the driver. It is fairly large (126mm X 72mm X 18mm) but will make this EL Driver portable



4) 3 x 18650 Rechargeable Battery Box


This 3 x 18650 Rechargeable Battery Box will plug straight into the driver. It is fairly large (63mm X 58mm X 30mm) and the leads for the output are 15cm long but will make this EL Driver portable.


5) Rechargeable Li-ion Battery

rechargable li-ion battery

Much smaller and lighter than the Battery Box, these powerful Li-ion batteries come in a range of sizes

1000mAh: 81g (6.5cm x 3.7cm x 1.8cm)

1800mAh: 100g (5cm x 3.3cm x 2.7cm)

6) Mains Powered

This handy PSU can be used to make this EL Driver powered off of Mains Electricity (UK, US or Euro plugs are available)


7) Car Lighter Adaptor

This adaptor plugs into the car lighter socket. It is fused and ends with a 5.5mm/2.1mm jack plug so it can be used with any of our 12v Drivers or accessories


8) 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

They can all be found in our Accessories section, or just click the description you want and be taken to its own page*


Remote Control

12v remote control

you can use this Remote Control Unit by connecting the Controller between the Power Source and the Driver
