Silent EL inverter that can be mounted on a PCB?

At Conrad Electronics I found an 5V EL inverter in a through hole package: WE-50

The disadvantage is that the inverter makes a buzzing sound that is just too loud.

Now, I wonder: Is a similar component available at Digi-Key, preferrably silent?

I read that one can open inverters and glue the capacitors to avoid audible vibrations. However, in this case, the package cannot be opened, at least not in an easy way.


Unfortunately we do not have a drop in replacement for your 5V EL Inverter.

We do have a couple options at 3 and 12 v, however they are wired modules and not through hole parts.

Thanks @Robert_Fay!

Maybe I’ll try building my own inverter.
