Turn any item of clothing into a party outfit with this plug and play set.
Design it so you can go to the toilet easily!!!
This listing is for 3 metres (3 x 1m lengths) of 3.2mm Electro – Luminescent Wire, a portable driver and a 3 way splitter.
The splitter lets you have 3 x 1 metre lengths of EL Wire attached to one driver/inverter.
This 3.2mm EL Wire can be any combination of these colours:
Light Blue (Tron Blue), Purple, Deep Blue, Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Lime Green, Grass Green, Turquoise-Green and White.
It is vibrant and malleable!
Please send a note with your order if you want different colours.
Because the EL naturally glows blue/green the brightest colour of the wire is the Light Blue, Lime Green and White. The least bright are the Red and Purple as they have to be filtered the most to get the colours right.
The Driver takes 2 x AA batteries (batteries not supplied) – it works by having a built-in voltage inverter that ‘inverts’ the 3 Volts from the batteries up to the 100 Volts needed to make the EL Wire glow.
This Driver is 9cm x 3.2cm x 2cm with a button for the 4 modes – Off, On, Fast Flash and Strobe.
It has 8cm of wire coming out of it that leads to the…
The Splitter is 40cm long in total. It has 20cm of wire which then splits into 3 separate strands which are all 20cm long and lead to the…
There is then another 20-25cm from the connector until the actual glowing start of EL Wire – then there is 3 X 1 metres of gorgeous glowing wire!
Its not complicated or fiddly – I’ve just given all those details if you want to plan your costume before you buy the set
This set can turn any item of clothing into a party outfit.
The whole kit is ready to use – just plug and play!

This wire comes with a standard connector so simply plugs into any EL driver – this makes it easy to change between coloured wire on one driver
By using splitters you can also connect different strands to the same driver.
EL wire has loads of uses
It 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
This wire can be cut into smaller lengths and attached to another driver.
Our drivers can run many strips of wire as long as the total length of the wire is under the driver’s maximum capacity (in this case under 5m).
With some care, the EL wire can be attached to speaker wire to make patterns or extend the wire over gaps where it isn’t needed.
Joining tape and heat-shrink tubing are also available if you want to cut the EL wire and rejoin it or perhaps attach some wire to a different driver.
Cutting the wire into the length you choose is simple… but rejoining it takes care and attention.
You will also definitely need some wire-strippers.
You can happily use the joining tape and heat shrink tubing supplied for a decent join but if the joint is likely to encounter stress (e.g. if it is threaded into clothes that will then be bent and jostle) or if the join may be hard to reach (e.g. behind a panel in a car) then we would advise soldering to avoid future hassle.
It is a cliché to say you are only limited by your imagination but with EL wire it is true!!!
If you have not seen it before it is like a really long glow stick that lasts over 5,000 hours.
We’re sure you will be amazed – feel free to message us with any questions.
We have some crazy glowing masks and glasses that go well with this kit – take a look!
