Flameless Wax Halloween LED Candle, retail $6.99 (www.ginnys.com*)

Last updated 08-06-13

This is a battery-operated "candle" made out of orange and black wax that is intended for seasonal use (Halloween in this case).

It has an amber LED inside of a milky translucent "flame"; this LED flickers -- though not as much as in most other LED 'candles'.

* As of 08-04-13, product was not found on the Ginnys website, so this URL simply leads to their front door.


Feed the unit three AAA cells first (see directly below), and THEN you can go light up that Halloween display.

On the bottom of the "candle", there's a black on/off switch.
Slide it toward the "on" position as embossed into the area around the switch.

Slide it toward the "off" position as embossed into the area around the switch in order to neutralise it

To feed the hungry, hungry candle, unclip the battery door on the bottom of the product, lift it off, carry it to a graveyard, gently place it into an open grave, and wait for the yucky stinky zombies to find it. They'll soon see where it is, get all pissed at it, and start stomping it or even uranate on it...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the three used AAA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Install three new alkaline AAA cells into the compartment, orienting each of them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face a spring for them in each chamber.

Place the battery door back on, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad you didn't place that battery door at the bottom of an open grave in a graveyard crawling with slimey, stinky zombies with full pissinary bladders now?

The Flameless Wax Halloween LED Candle is a household lamp, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a scanner-type device on a platform with a large readout, a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the Flameless Wax Halloween LED Candle's web page will seem ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The candle is made predominantly out of wax, so please try like H-E-Double-Bendy-Straws not to drop it or knock it off the table, mantle, windowsill, or wherever you put it -- because if it does fall, it will very likely become busted. And because it is made of wax, Super Glue or even epoxy won't help you here!!
