EL wire diameter

Hi there, wondering if anyone can tell me the outer diameter of the extra bright white EL Wire.

Hi Torrance
It is all in the description.

“Adafruit has got 2.6mm thickness EL wire, with a pinkish coat, pre-cut and soldered to a standard quick-connect EL wire. It is made with the latest technology and twice as bright as ‘standard’ 2.3mm EL - running it at 1.5KHz/90V it emits 115 cd/m^2 or light and a half-life (50% brightness reduction) after 3000 hours of continuous use. Draws about 10mA per meter. The capacitance is about twice that of ‘standard’ EL, 11 nF/m so if you’re using an inverter, it will drive only half as much high brightness wire as standard.”

To answer your question…2.6mm
Cheers Bob


Ahh thanks, Bob - I neglected to see that!
