I've got to repair a glowire string I got used the other day.

Ive got the glowire stripped back some, ready to solder them up.

I tested it with + on the center conductor, and - on the center conductor. It works either way.

Anyways, before I solder this stuff back together, I want to confirm what the polarity is SUPPOSED to be.

Also, is it ok to solder this stuff or do you guys do something else?

There is no right and wrong polarity

I solder my wire ...and then heatshrink over it..

it's kind of a pain really considering how small that internal wire is on the glow wire..

I think i gathered somewhere that the output from the driver is A/C so it wouldnt matter either way.

Anyways, it's done and the heli lights up. cool

The reason it works either way is because it runs on AC, which in this case has no polarity. Soldering is fine, just be careful to get a good connection.
