Works really well and is surprisingly bright when in a very dark room. Mine appears to be more orange-y red but not a big issue and it looks great!
This is 2.5m of EL wire. EL wire is a stiff wire coated with phosphor and PVC that glows when an AC signal is applied to it. To use, the wire must be connected to an inverter that provides an AC supply of approximately 100V at 2000 Hz. This wire is 250 cm long which is the maximum that can be driven by a handy 2xAA portable pocket inverter The full length draws 200mA from the 2xAA batteries (so 2000mAh batteries will last ~10 hours if on 'constant' mode).
