View Full Version : Need a good Blue pic

Hey, I'm currently deciding between a Blue EL saber or a Blue LED. I have some very impressive-looking pictures of the blue LED, but I haven't seen much at all of the blue EL. Does anyone have any good pictures of a blue EL blade? Please also state what kind of voltage it's running on as well.

OK, here was my third or fourth (can't remember) EL hilt. It uses blue not blue-green EL, Power source is 8 AAA batteries, two 4KHz inverters. Batteries are old. Blades are 36 inches with EL wire looped four times. Diffuser is a fabric found in fabric store normally used for backing when stitching embroidery. I am about to retrofit the blade with PolyE tube which should make the blades even brighter. Picture was taken in an office with normal office lighting 15-20 feet from a window on a sunny day. Image was taken using miniDV camcorder's stills function. And now after that long-winded explanation, the picture
