also don't poke an exposed el wire it's like 100v ac and it stings!!

also the inverter makes a very disapproving noise at u

tbf this panel is very cheap and has a tiny track for the other connection so eh,

yeh nah this el thing ain't happening without conductive goop, tried soldering directly to it and nope

just got a premade panel =n=

learning to electronic, one burnt component at a time,

it did glow for a second before fzzzz and left a burn mark on it so i guess the panel still works?? which is good??

exploring the joy of trying to solder onto el panel.. tried conductive silver paint that just burned away =n=

gonna just try to punch a few holes into it and route a resistor lead or some thin wire through it, maybe it'd take some solder like that

would be a bit easier if i had conductive glue =s=

could just wire it across 2 of the 4 batteries but that's gonna annoy me to no end

maybe put em in parallels of 2 and then boost up the 6v since my boosts are small enough to maybe fit in there

would rather not stick a 3.3v linear regulator in there cause it might get toasty and drain the batteries v fast -n-

calculator backlight time *u*
just have to figure out how to power it since the el inverter needs 3v and the calc needs 6v

up, up, and aweh!! *flops down next to u*

yaay e-ink

i meant to use it for a clock but these multicoloured ones don't support partial refresh and the full refresh takes 15-ish seconds during which the whole screen flashes..

maybe good for a calendar / weather thing though :thinkhappy:

oo it's double gubbins time today.. πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
