Default EL wire on helmets

Has anyone here tried the EL wire or tape on their helmets? Im interested in how well they work.

Yes. I saw these helmets on Pinterest. I love that they light up as i commute early in the morning. I've even seen brake ligjts for your helmet via Bluetooth, also brake and turn lighr that are attached to the back of a jacket. I just ordered the helmet kit. I'll post my reviews when I've installed it.

Sure, sure...but most people won't actually submerge their equipment/bike/helmet, which is what the "proof" part generally means.

We'll find out if they put up with rain pretty quick. I don't imagine they'll be on sale for very long if they won't.

Please be careful with color choice... In some places it is illegal to have a red colored light on any portion of your vehicle (rider included) other than the rear.
I have a friend that has put these on a helmet and it does look cool, he used a light blue based on discussions with a PD friend...

What a stupid idea. I have no intention of running around looking like I escaped from a Tron movie, or some stupid video game.
