EL Wire 12V Sound Activated Pocket Inverter

via Adafruit
SKU AF-832

A small, portable inverter for EL wire with an audio input! This inverter has a little microphone and will light the connected EL according to the surrounding audio volume. Makes for an easy reactive project.

This inverter requires 12VDC input (it works great with our 8xAA battery holder) and it can drive 2-3 meters (7 to 10 feet) of our high-brightness EL wire OR 1 meter (3 feet) of EL tape OR a 10cmx10cm piece of EL panel continuously for about 48 hours (off of 4xAA's).

There is a switch for selecting steady/sound/off modes - steady is 'always on'. Comes with a single 2.5mm pitch female JST connectors, standard for all the EL wire and tape we carry. There's also two power wires, you'll need to connect these to a 12VDC power source. The white striped wire goes to +12V, the plain black wire goes to ground.

You can plug any of our EL wire/tape into this inverter directly. To connect a 'raw' piece EL wire to this, you'll want a male connector wire

The EL inverter requires a 'load' to stabilize itself. Do not run the inverter without at least 2 ft of EL wire attached! Otherwise the inverter can spike and damage itself
