Simple battery based EL controller that is ran by our Mini EL driver and 3db BLE Flex Module.

    The flex on this board doesn't fold well to toward the EL connectors. We wanted to minimize the chance of shorting the high voltage with other traces. We might redo the design to further prevent this.

    In theory the watch batter should provide decent performance. We will be testing, but I expect that it will only last about an hour.

    The design may be upgraded to a rechargeable design once we have a fully functional charger Flex Module.

    We put this together this week to show off the mini EL Flex Module. We used the connectors we have available, but we might change to another connector standard.
