The EL shield is the easiest way to control EL wire or tape with an Arduino. The shield is very well made, the high voltage electronics are nicely shielded of with a thick piece of acrylic. When powering the Arduino/EL shield through the power jack the shield generates 5V for the inverter through its own voltage regulator so you don’t need to worry about blowing up your Arduino. The shield and inverter are capable of driving 15 meter of EL wire or tape, that’s a lot :p
