EL wire has loads of uses.

It looks amazing when decorating the interior or exterior of cars, can be used inside and outside of the home and office and can even be threaded into clothes and hats.

The EL Wire can be cut into smaller lengths and attached to another Driver/Inverter.

Or 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.

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 around 5,000 hours.

We’re sure you will be amazed – feel free to message our team with any questions you may have.
