Battery pack controller with off/on switch and strobe mode
Great for rave parties, displays, and costume decorating
Note: Requires 2 AA batteries for use. Batteries not included.
Electroluminescent wire (often called EL wire) is a thin copper wire coated in a luminescent substance that glows when an alternating current is applied to it. It can be used for a variety of applications. This EL wire kit includes 9 feet of 2.3 mm EL wire and each with a battery pack controller that has off/on and strobe mode. This will benefit the discerning decorator who needs to liven up their Christmas parties, rave parties, Halloween costume, or retail store display!
-Costume decorating. Halloween, birthday parties, you name it--wherever you need a costume, we guarantee the EL wire will make it stand out.
-Safety. Use EL wire to wrap around the spokes of your bike tires, your wrists, or even your pet's collar for extra protection during night-time activities.
-You can also use it to light up dark hallways or stairwells. This video does a good job of showing how this can work on a bicycle.
-Holiday decorating. The EL wire actually uses less energy than regular Christmas lights, plus the bendability of the wire will allow you more freedom in making holiday shapes (such as Christmas trees, Santas, menorahs for Hannukah, etc.)
-Accessorizing. You can wrap the wire around tennis shoe laces or your head for when you're going dancing out with friends or at a a concert.

the item is nice but not as bright as the description makes it out to be,was going to buy more but like i said not very bright
I ordered pink, and when the wire is not lit it appears pink, but you can clearly see the white/light blue inner wire showing through. when lit it is just a dull white, less bright than actual white wires, and there is no pink visible at all in the dark. This is completely useless.
My experiences with the other colors are good, but these wires tend to break at the connections. I've had this problem with multiple sellers. It's better to learn how to solder them back together yourself if you intend to use them heavily.
The nicest way to put this is, this a completely useless piece of junk. I would rate them a 0 if possible. The orange wires I ordered are not orange at all--it's a very faded, and almost tan, color. The batteries have trouble maintaining contact with the curly wire "posts" in the battery compartment, especially on the negative ends. I had to use pliers to stretch those wires out. When turned on, there is a very loud and constant buzzing or hum from the battery pack. When lit, the wire is very dim, and is NOT orange at all--the color is instead mostly white with short segments of "orange" here and there. The battery compartment covers will not stay on. I had to use electrical tape to hold them on. I bought these to use a halloween costume but after hours of fighting with these things and being unable to get them to stay lit reliably, I threw them in the trash. Thank goodness I checked this before sewing them into my...
