5 mm LyTec® wire. $1.50/foot This is the thickest wire we carry. The actual wire that glows is not thicker, the extra thickness is the coating around the wire. This thickness is the best option for wire that will be used outdoors, because it provides the most protection from UV light, which is detrimental to EL wire. Please specify color and desired length of wire. Colors: blue-green, lime, red, pink, ultramarine , yellow, purple, and white
For "Quantity," please simply specify the number of feet you would like. For example, if you want 10 feet, specify 10 for the quantity.
Note from Eric : I DO NOT LIKE 5MM WIRE AS MUCH AS 2.6mm. It is not as bright as the 2.6mm wire, because of the thicker shielding. I do not keep 5mm wire in stock, so I will need to order it, adding about 4-5 days to the delivery time. The 2.6mm wire is MUCH brighter. Sometimes, a project absolutely calls for 5mm wire, so it can be ordered if necessary.
NOTE: EL WIRE DOES NOT LIGHT UP BY ITSELF- YOU MUST USE A DRIVER TO LIGHT THE EL WIRE. Also, a connector will need to be soldered onto the end of it, for connecting to the driver. If you do not wish to solder it yourself, please order the "SOLDER IT FOR ME" service for each section of EL wire to be soldered. If you are lighting multiple sections from one driver, then order Y splitters - one fewer than the total number of EL wire sections.For example, if you need to light up 5 sections of EL wire, you would need 4 of the Y splitters.
