I need to control the state of an El Wire light tube with a USB power supply connector with an Arduino Nano or Uno. I want to avoid relays because of the loud click sound. As I'm pretty bad at reading transistor or mosfet data sheets, I need a little advice from you guys.

What kind of transistor or mosfet do I need to switch the 5v USB supply of the el Wire light tube with a GPIO pin of an Arduino nano? Could you maybe also provide a schematic to wire up the transistor? Thanks in advance!
