EL wire for tron identity disc

by dito on Fri Mar 15, 2013 7:58 pm

I want to use EL wire to modify my deluxe tron identity disc. i want to make it bright. i'm not sure if the 2xAA is going to be enough. i was thinking of using A23 battery (12V) but the 12v inverter would never fit inside the disc. what happens if i connect an A23 battery to a 2xAA inverter and use about 5 ft of EL wire.

so if i take apart my 2xAA pocket inverter (http://www.adafruit.com/products/317) from my starter set (http://www.adafruit.com/products/545) and hook it up to an A23 battery (12v) will I fry my el wire?

You will more likely fry the inverter before you fry the wire.
