I'd like to make it slim and store power from a solar cell during the day.
i know people on this website don't like to buy stuff, but for el wire it's sooo much easier to just buy a power supply. Depending on you wire, you basically need a high frequency (kilohertz range) high voltage (around 200vac maybe?) powersupply.

I usually like to build my own things too.
Except when it is going to be: easier/cheaper/better to buy the component. Considering cooliht is selling el wire inverters for less than 10 bucks, i would tend to lead towards that option.
im not sure why you wouldn't buy it.http://www.CooLight.com/category-s/2.htmis the inverter you will need for el wire to function. To add the solar charger:Wire the input of the inverter to a battery, and attach the battery to a solar charging circuit.
