    Thats a hell of a question. I am curious about that too. But if I had to guess, I would say it does not conduct electricity.

    No, hot glue is vinyl based, so it doesn't conduct electricity. It makes a very good insulator.

    My only concern would be the circuit heating the glue up.

    If your circuit get's hot enough to melt the glue, you have bigger problems to worry about.
