Silent Automotive 100cm2 EL Inverter

This is a dedicated EL Inverter (exciter circuit) it is tweaked to perform best with EL Panel and tapes (though it can also drive up to 3m of EL Wire, but not as brightly as a multi-use inverter would)

These specialist inverters have been designed for use powering EL Panels in cars, ideally for kick plates.

They are silent and also have an earth which helps remove any EM interference

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

For the 12v version you will find these compatible Power Inputs options in the drop down selection:
