Glow Wire is a bright flexible light wire that simulates neon. It’s battery-powered, enabling it to be easily incorporated into costumes or moving props. Our Glow Wire is made from the brightest, longest lasting electroluminescent cable available – it will not crack or “burn out”. Our control boxes emit super high frequency output, providing the brightest effect possible with no sacrifice to wire life. The Glow Wire is 1/8 inch diameter, flexible enough to be loosely knotted, and can be viewed from all sides (entire surface area is lit). It’s cold to the touch and water-resistant, making it suitable for almost any application. It is available in 4′, 7′, and 20′ lengths.
Requires two AA alkaline batteries which provide at least 6 hours of light. Includes 10 inches of lead wire between control box and Glow Wire (may be extended with GWE36 36 inches Lead Wire Extension). Also features a flash switch, allowing you to flash the Glow Wire on and off approximately once per second, if desired. Additional Glow Wires (GWR07, see Glow Wire section under Lighting Technics) may be purchased separately to change the color of your Kit.
