Question Electroluminescent cable question


I picked up a 6' length of the blue variety and now it's glued to the bottom of my case to provide underlighting. The length worked out well, but I have a question.

If I were to cut the stuff into pieces, how would I reattach the power wires? The stuff I have has a transition from two wires to a single one, and I can't clearly see what's soldered to what.

Any pointers?

Without seeing it that is hard to answer. Your best bet is to get a meter and test the connections for continuity. You should be able to figure out which wire is which.

I've seen something similar to what your using called GloWirez. You can pick it up at http://www.koolglo.com

Its probably the same stuff. I'm sure you could re-connect them, but you might want to talk to the manufactuer about it.
