    I just got some red lightsheet, I thought it would be as easy as wiring it to a 9 volt power source but no dice... so I am assuming there is some intermediary device I need for power to get from the battery into the lightsheet but I don't know where i should get the information or device?

    Thanks for any input...

    Jerry I just bought some for the Raptor I am building and there is some type of power invertor that is between the batteries and the El Sheet.

    Where did you get yours from?

    Mine came from Miller Engineering:

    Yep, EL sheet runs on AC power. Special inverters that run on DC must be used to power them. . .

    Try contacting where you bought it from, that is the most logical choice.

    They sold you the stuff, they morethen likley sell the stuff to make it work.
