Driver / Inverter Info

3V Basic Starter Driver: A small & compact driver (10cm x 3cm x 2cm) that runs on 2 AA batteries. A button on the front allows you to cycle through the modes which include fully lit, slow blink, and fast blink. The run time varies between 8-14 hours depending on the chosen setting and battery quality.  *Starter driver may look different than photo.

3V Sound Responsive Driver: A small & compact driver (10cm x 2.5cm x 1cm) that runs on 2 AAA batteries. Selectable settings include on, flash, and sound react. Sound react mode will make the EL wire blink, pulse, and fade to the music and sound.  The run time varies between 6-12 hours depending on the chosen setting and battery quality.  

EL Wire Information

We sell high quality 2nd generation 'Polar-Light 2' EL wire which is noticeably brighter than the lower quality EL wire sold by some other shops. We have sourced our glow wire from the highest quality manufacturers and pre-soldered it with a JST2 connector so you don't have to spend the time soldering.  Our EL wire plugs directly into the driver that is included with this kit and detaches just as easily.

Colors We Sell Aqua Blue - Lime Green - Blue - White - Lava Red - Yellow - Pink -  Grass Green - Peach - Purple

Width: 2.2mm wide - The 2.2mm EL wire has been our go-to width for years thanks to a combination of its low weight, flexibility and brightness. This is the optimal width for most projects as smaller EL wire can be fragile and thicker EL wire loses some of its glow.

Connectors & Misc

The 2 meter power extender is a small silver colored wire that works as an extension cord between the EL wire and the driver. Without the extender you will need to keep the driver at the point where the EL wire starts on your design, but with the extender you can put the driver up to 2m away.  Very handy with costumes to keep the driver safely tucked away in a pocket.

All EL wire & drivers come pre-soldered with JST connectors allowing for the wire to be easily connected or disconnected.  Our kits are plug and play, just add batteries. EL wire is also known as: cool neon, neon string, glow string, glow wire, neon wire, and flexible glow string.

Love The Light!Review by Starr
The aqua blue kit looks great, especially at night. I found the wire easy to attach to my backpack for extra visibility at night.
EL Wire Starter KitReview by Not Given
The EL wire kit arrived quickly and I am happy with the purchase. The quality seems good and I really like the glow of the royal blue. Will order from here again.
Pink EL WireReview by Samie H.
Ordered 2 kits, one pink and one blue. The blue had a definite 'royal blue' look but the pink was kind of half pink half blue. The owner explained that this is due to the inside of the wire having a blue tint and shining slightly through the shell. It still looked super cool though.

Good quality, easy to use. First time using 'el wire' but found it quite simple to add to my costume.
Easy To UseReview by David J
I had always wanted to try EL wire but wasn't sure about what I needed. The premade kits here are exactly what I needed, it took all the guesswork out of buying EL wire. The blue wire was very bright and had a cool glow that is hard to describe. I used this to line the zipper of a black hoodie and it looked great.
Starter Kit EL WireReview by Withheld
I bought a bunch of these for my friends and I that were heading to Shambhala and they were awesome. Some people took the time to sew these onto clothing, but others just wrapped them around themselves. This is some of the brighter EL wire I have used, last time I bought some cheapie ebay stuff and it was terrible. Good to know this is the good stuff!
Good and badReview by John L
We received our package in the mail quite quickly but the driver wouldn't work. Matt had another one on it's way the same day, which was great.
Good Quality, Great ServiceReview by Wlf
I've bought EL wire from a few different websites but the stuff here is by far the highest quality I have used. Matt was great and very patient with my numerous questions, will buy again.
Starter KitReview by Jdilly88
The starter kit did the trick, thanks. Definitely recommend the lime as it was very bright.
Great Kit - Great PriceReview by Anonymous
We bought a bunch of these for our trip down to Burning Man and we were very impressed. Super long battery life and very durable even with all the sand (it will get anywhere and everywhere). The light made all the difference at night!
Starter Kit PurchaseReview by DJ Nick
I've used EL wire before in the past but this stuff is the best so far. It is much brighter and easier to work with than previous glow wire I've bought thanks!
