Went to Burning Man 2012 and this def withstood the dust and bumping around. Good product but do be aware it is not purple but more a blue tone.

I was expecting a UV-type color tone... however I got a white wire in a violet housing acting like a filter, giving a fuscia/pink color.

Nevertheless, It is a very nice item, I wired it (PCB included ) to the 5v line of one of the USB ports of my computer and having it running 24/7 . Not flaws so far...except heat

There IS pitching sound..probably made by the inverter, and it gets louder when raising the current , this thing also gets hot , so if you gonna hack it take the sound and the heat into consideration.

I ordered two units and both of them had the same defect from what looks like cheap manufacturing. The contact points at the bottom of the battery housing are not glued on straight. The lights will turn on with the battery casing open but when you close the battery housing, the batteries are shifted off the contact point at the bottom causing the unit to shut off. Because the contact point is glued on and affixed underneath two bits of plastic, it would be impossible to fix without breaking the battery case. I tried just leaving the battery case open but the units began shifting between solid, quick flash, and slow flash without pressing the button. The lights, when lit, made a high-pitched whine that got annoying after a while. I returned these items for a refund. It's possible other people leaving great reviews didn't receive a defective unit from the same faulty batch. I wouldn't buy or recommend buying unless the defect was fixed and all defective units were pulled from distribution.

Bought it for BM and it kept working the whole week, don't even think I had to replace the batteries. Keep in mind I put the battery pack in a ziplock and taped it shut so it wouldn't be exposed to the alkali dust. Great to wrap around your bike or jacket.

I wrapped this EL wire around my bike and was sad to find it not working after only one night of use. It's luminous purple curves will tempt you, but it sure was a let down for me.

Works beautifully and was exactly what I expected. Totally nailed me on shipping, but still 100% worth it. I will definitely be ordering more for future outfits. Look for the girl in pink and blue wires at Nocturnal Wonderland!

looks really cool, but it beeps when it flashes on or off. I can see this getting really annoying, especially if you're using it in a costume

I've got a few projects in mind for these, including using these on stage for my roommates band, as well as sewing them into some clothing. They work better than I was expecting.

The EL wire glows and that's really all I expected. Nice power supply inverter does solid, blink and quicker blink. Good color, especially in lower light conditions.
