    Hi guys.

    I am working on a project using EL wire. I have been using stock standard inverter/battery packs that come with the wire off ebay, but they are not meeting my requirements.

    I am not very well versed in electronics, so im hoping some of you may be able to help me design an inverter circuit to meet these requirements if possible:

    1: powered by 3v (2xAA)
    2: simple on and off function (no intermittent flashing)
    3: able to stay on without powering EL, without causing damage to the circuit (ive read this can happen. My current stock inverters turn themselves off with nothing to power)

    I just need something small and simple to meet these requirements.

    Thanks in advance for any help. If you need any more information please let me know.

    I am curious as to why you would want them to stay on when not powering anything. What does this accomplish, other than wasting battery energy?
