Generally speaking, EL has a lifespan of about 4,000-6,000 hours, however with our MEGA series of inverters, this lifespan is increased to about 6-8,000 hours, but we've seen products last well over 10,000 hours using these inverters. Any inverter made overseas you will find at any store (including ours) runs at a much higher frequency (generally between 1000-2000Hz), which actually decreases the lifespan of the phosphor. At best, you will see a decrease of 1-2,000 hours. Many other stores have higher frequencies than even this, which causes an even bigger decrease of lifespan. We’ve seen companies use frequencies up to 6,000Hz, which would give your EL a lifespan of about 100 hours.
When using Electroluminescent lighting in permanent installations, by using a quality inverter as you can see will not only increase the lifespan of the technology, but also decrease the headaches caused by cheaper inverters. In wearable applications, Ellumiglow can custom make an inverter to fit any specification, so it is not only safe to the user, but also runs bright and allows the product to last as long as possible.
