    That depends, how long was the strand? It is my understanding that there is a minimum length of EL wire upon which inverters like to operate. While they can drive less they wear out faster. This particular inverter seems to want a minimum of 10 meters (about 33 feet). It appears that sparkfun only sells in lengths of 3m so only using one strand may have done some damage to the inverter.
    Of course I may be misinformed and this could be completely wrong. I don’t know the math to back up my claims and the datasheet seems less than comprehensive.

No public wish lists :(
