What do you do with it?

There must be a million uses for this glowing wire.  It is bendable and plastic coated, so it is easy to put anywhere.  Wrap it around your bike for a night glow on the bike path.  Weave it through your hair for a festive hairstyle that will get you noticed at parties and nightclubs.  Put it along the edge of your jacket for a decorative trim.  Highlight parts of your car.  Put it under a sheer top to make your clothes glow.  It looks amazing under fishnet stockings. 


What is it?

It is a length of colored wire with a small, black, plastic battery box, called an inverter, on one end.  There is a connector on the end of the EL wire section, that plugs into a matching connector on the inverter.  The inverter is just a small, black, plastic box that holds one battery, and turns the wire on and off.  The inverter has a switch that turns the wire on steady, or if switched in the other direction, makes the wire blink.  The inverter battery lasts a long time before you have to change the battery.  The 3 foot set lasts about 11 hours on one battery, and the 5 foot unit lasts about 10 hours.   The 20 foot unit has a plug for an external power supply, which can be a battery pack or an AC adapter. 


The wire is flexible, is covered with plastic, and is 2.2 mm in diameter. You can wrap it around things, stick it in your mouth, and even tie it in loose knots.  If you kink it very sharply, it will eventually short out, and you may have to cut off the shorted out part.  You can bend it, but if you bend it sharply in the same place over and over, it will eventually go bad in that place.  The glow from EL wire is not bright enough to be seen in bright sunlight, so it is best for nighttime situations.  Looks great in nightclubs, raves, Burning Man, proms, and cocktail parties.  It is tons of fun!


This is high quality wire.  Some new, cheaper wire has appeared on the market recently, but we have tested it, and found that it is not reliable.  The internal structure of the cheap wire breaks down when it is bent, and the wire has dim sections.  We use a good quality wire that we have used successfully for the last 4 years in all kinds of harsh uses.  It has been tested and approved by artists around the world.  Shop with care.
