Basic facts about electroluminescent wire:

Electroluminescent wire, also referred to as el wire, glowstring, glowwire, or neon string, must have
alternating current in order to light up. Powering el wire with batteries is done through the use
of inverters, also referred to as drivers.. EL wire Inverters/drivers change the direct current from the
batteries into alternating current. 
Different inverters are available for different applications, depending
on the length of electroluminescent wire
and the power source be used. Some inverters / drivers have
sequencers and can power several different strands of el wire, turning them on and off in the desired sequennce.
NeonString carries a variety of  drivers and sequencers. Electroluminescent wire can be soldered end to end if necessary.
El wire can be cut to a shorter length simply using wire cutters.
