12v Sound to Light Inverter

This EL Inverter is capable of powering 50 to 300square cm of EL Panel (or 20 metres of EL Wire)

It is sound activated so the EL Panel or Tape will flash to any noise being made

If you want to light up several pieces at once, please visit our Additional Items section where you will find splitters, cables & extension leads.

There is a sensitivity dial on the front which allows you to set how responsive it is to sound

(Please be aware that the inverter should always be attached to some EL Tape/Panel or EL Wire when it has power to it, else it may overheat)


The Inverter has a 2.1/5.5mm jack plug attached (this is a standard 12v connector).

You will find these compatible Power Inputs options in the drop down menu:


Only the Inverter:

You may already have your own 12v input with a 2.1/5.5mm connector,

or you may choose to snip off the connector and wire it directly into a 12v source
