Answered: Non functional decorative power sources (again)


I have seen this question asked in previous seasons, but the question never specifically mentions a power source that comes with an item, so I assume you may say it’s not legal due to the fact that the batteries may be used improperly or poorly fabricated by the students.

If I have some LED lights (more specifically EL wire) that come with a battery pack would this be legal? this would be a self contained power supply which should be as safe as what you would find in a small video camera. This is the same type of wire used by the drummers in the Saturday morning show at Worlds this year.

Thanks in advance.

No, this would not be legal.
