Even though the Tron movies have been out for a while, electroluminescence is still the coolest thing since sliced bread. The only downer is carrying around a battery pack and bulky external inverter. Good news, we’ve found a slim battery-powered inverter for your next small EL project! This little black box takes two AA batteries and has two JST connectors for your EL wire/panel/tape. There are two modes: continuous on and flashing and it even has a belt clip!
The following current readings were taken while the pack was connected to one or more of our 3m EL wire:
- Single strand always on: 190 to 260mA
- Single strand blinking: 90 to 120mA
- Two strands always on: ~300mA
- Two strands blinking: ~150mA
