This worked very well for my admittedly odd purpose: I need to make the edge of a prop battleax appear to glow red hot, and there was enough of this to wrap the 18" blade three times. It was quite effective, especially at night.

Fun to see the EL wire prices come down. Looked at EL wire for the 2013 Burning Man but turned away because of power issues (6V minimum), price, etc. Found these just before leaving for Burning Man and turned them on for the first time on the playa. The two units, yellow and purple, did exactly what I needed in lighting me up to protect me for burner cyclists. The 9' length worked well for wrapping around hat, etc.
Loved the blink and strobe effects. Also liked that the controller had a belt clip.
Two downsides, and small at that, were: 1) that the controller emitted a low-volume, high-frequency hum but my girlfriend said that all controllers did that; 2) the end cap of one the EL wires would not stay attached. Do not believe the loose end cap impacted the performance but have exposed my girlfriend to rough edges.
Note: I am leaving the same review for both the purple and yellow units.
I ordered 3 of the green wires for a costume, and 1 of them failed. It worked for a little bit but started to flake out and finally no longer turned on.
It was the controller/battery pack and not the wire -- there wasn't the faint buzzing sound from the dead one that the other 2 exhibit when they are on. Tried different/fresh batteries but no dice. Sucked to have it fail on halloween night
