126mm x 72mm x 18mm

and the lead for the output is 19cm long with a 2.1mm/5.5mm plug.

This is a useful item for when you need to power a 12V appliance that you want to make portable


Standard alkaline batteries are 1.5v so 8 of them make 12V

 These battery packs are used to power powerful driver/inverters for EL wire

If you have never seen EL wire have a look at my other items – it is basically a thin cool glowing neon wire

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

If you have not seen it before it is like a really long glow stick that lasts around 5,000 hours

We’re sure you will be amazed – feel free to message us with any questions.
