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.

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.

5M EL WIRE KITReview by guest
The EL wire was bright and colorful. Battery pack lasted more than 10 hours which was surprising, must be similar power use compared to LED lights. The lime green EL wire really stood out at night.
Awesome Halloween CostumesReview by Mary & Dave
What a cool & funky product! We were trying to re-use some Halloween costumes from previous years but wanted to alter them a bit, EL wire worked perfectly. All of our friends wanted to know what was glowing on our costumes. The battery pack looks well made and held up just fine, and the EL wire was flexible and easy to sew on. Highly recommended.
great service.Review by hoppy
Got the order 3 days after ordering, although it shipped to a different province. I imagine the assembly was easy, as my 11-yr-old did it without reading the instructions. Everything works as expected. Well done.
5 Meters - Just rightReview by David Rasma
I had bought the 2 meter kit for my bike but found it to be a little short and returned it. The 5 meter kit was perfect and allowed me to wrap it around the entire frame, fork, and handlebars. I ended up putting the driver in a small bag that hangs off of the bike seat to keep it safe and dry.
