EL PANNEL wiring troubleshoot please help

by cannibalxashi on Thu Jul 27, 2017 2:35 am

I have purchased the Electroluminescent (EL) Panel - 20cm x 15cm Aqua and am going to use it for a costume, so I purchased the 8 x AA battery holder power pack, so it can be for portable use. I have everything attached and I'm not getting anything. Is there something that I'm not connecting correctly? please help!

Can you measure the INPUT to the inverter (OUTPUT from the batteries)

When you plug in the power is there any noise from the inverter? What are you using to measure the voltage?
