Electroluminescent (EL) Wire

Just stumbled across this funky lighting on ebay. I did a quick search on here to see if anyone uses it and cant see any recent threads. So, does anyone here use it, have any pros and cons to it, hints tips etc.

Ebay has a battery kit for about £3 ($5) so quite cheap, but thought I would ask before jumping in.

I used it in the past as a lightning bolt between the poles of my electric chair. I also still have yellow EL wire wrapped around the electrodes.
Looks really good when it's dark outside.
EL wire is kind of a pain to solder, though. It consists of two wires: one is thick, but the other is about the thickness of a human hair.
Not impossible, just a pain........
