The new EL Wire Starter Kit, from the Maker Shed, includes everything you need to experience the glowing greatness that is EL wire. The pocket inverter energizes the included wire to create a heat-less, bright, Aqua colored light. Perfect for parties, raves, concerts, and for making your own Tron style accessories like the Make:Project below!


  • 2.5 meters (over 8 ft) of high-brightness, long-life EL wire in Aqua. 2.5 meters is the maximum amount for the pocket driver – it is cut and soldered so it’s ready to go!
  • Pocket EL inverter runs on 2 AA Alkaline or rechargeable batteries (not included)
  • 2 inches of heat shink, both 1/8″ and 1/4″ for protecting the EL wire after soldering if you end up wanting to change the wire up
  • 2 inches of copper tape, used when soldering EL wire
  • 2 inches of foam tape (used to pad the inside of the inverter to quiet it down)
