  • To anyone searching:
    The black pair of wires is the OUTPUT of the inverter and the side you plug into your EL wire.
    The red/black pair of wires is the INPUT. This is the side you hook to your 3v source.
    I couldn’t find any help online until I found the image on the link below, and have confirmed that it works:

  • I had a heck of a time getting these to work reliably for me with an arduino. I tried all kinds of code tweaks and wirings and eventually gave up and went for the much simpler reed switch (which I didn’t know existed at first) and now my project works great!
