Create the Perfect Valentine’s Day Ambience without the Messy Wax

February 6, 2012 Leave a comment

Candlelight is an easy way to change the mood of your surroundings – creating a soothing environment after a long day, adding sophistication for parties, or enhancing romance for a night in. However, the potential for dripping or spilled wax and hazards of an open flame do not make candles the ideal lighting method. Or if you are outside, flames could go out with a gust of wind. This decorative lighting unit features an LED candle to replace existing candle fixtures. Constructed from resin, this flameless version looks just like traditional candles but requires less maintenance. There will no longer be wax to chip out of the glass container. You won’t have to remember to blow it out or relight the flames if it were to go out. Simply flip the switch to turn the LED on and give the candle a lit appearance. Then, flip the switch to off when its light is no longer required. Because the candle operates off battery power, you won’t see any increases in your electricity bill. This product requires the use of two C batteries, sold separately. Read more
