The Driver has a switch on the side with 3 different positions Off > Blink > Continuous On
As explained in detail below, these Adaptable Drivers are very versatile with a whole selection of Power inputs (Mains, Batteries, Direct 12V etc)
The size of the Driver is: 5cm x 3.2cm x 2.8cm
Using splitters, this Driver can run as many separate strands as you like as long as the total is under 15 metres
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 has a range of power inputs that cover most potential uses, please choose one of these from the drop-down menu:
1) ONLY THE DRIVER
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…
Perfect if you already have your own 12V battery to run this driver
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
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.
Much smaller and lighter than the Battery Box, these powerful Li-ion batteries come in a range of sizes
1800mAh (flat): 100g (10cm x 5.5cm x 0.8cm)
1800mAh: 100g (5cm x 3.3cm x 2.7cm)
2800mAh: 150g (6.8cm x 4.7cm x 2.2cm)
5000mAh: 265g (5.3cm x 5.8cm x 3.9cm)
All of these Li-ion Batteries come with an intelligent recharger
This handy PSU can be used to make this EL Driver powered off of Mains Electricity (UK, US or Euro plugs are available)
This adapter 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
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
