  • A very powerful Driver / Inverter able make between 20 and 60 metres of EL Wire glow much brighter, than most other Drivers.

  • Range of power supplies from mains to batteries to direct 12v connection etc.



This handy item is a 12v Driver / Inverter which will run between 20 and 60 metres of EL Wire.

  • Please be aware that this Driver, when switched ‘ON’, will go straight into ‘Flash’ mode before ‘Continuous ON’.

Running any less wire than 20m will reduce the lifespan of the wire and strain this driver as it is being overpowered.

The Driver has a switch on the back for either continuous ON or Flashing

The size of the Driver is: 12cm x 6.5cm x 3cm and weighs 222g.

This is a very powerful inverter that not only runs very long lengths of EL Wire but does so much brighter than most other drivers!

Using splitters it can run as many strands as you like as long as the total is under 60 metres
