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 hopefully cover most uses:


12v small adaptable driver

If you have your own 12V 5.5mm/2.1mm input you want to use or you may be using the 2 way power supply splitter that lets you use 2 drivers off one battery (available below)


2) Crocodile Clips
