We got a chance to play with these inverters and you can easily hack these to work with our Li-Po batteries (yep, at the fully charged 4.2V). To get inside, you'll need to remove a pair of screws (one is hiding under the CE sticker) and afterwards you'll want to wrap things up with electrical tape to avoid getting shocked (it just tingles a little).
The following current readings were taken while the pack was connected to one or more of our 3m EL wire:
- Single strand always on: 190 to 260mA
- Single strand blinking:90 to 120mA
- Two strands always on: ~300mA
- Two strands blinking: ~150mA
Different color strands were used but the lengths were identical.Your mileage may vary. If you need to pick up some Li-Po batteries, electrical tape or EL wire to hack your own battery pack, check the related items below!
