These are LED-based "tea lights" that are a bit larger than real tea light candles (the candle is somewhat "hockey puck-shaped"), but there is no messy dripping wax, no flame, no smoke, no messy soot, and no odour. They are battery-powered & can be turned on and off at will; you do not need to have a "siggeret" lighter on you or nearby.

And if they get nocked to the floor, just pick them up and place them back where you found them. No fuss, no muss.

The packaging materials tout, "Flame Free, Smoke Free, Worry Free!" which is absolutely, positively, 100% correct!

The "flame" is made of a soft silicone rubber, not real fire.

To use the LED Tea Light, just slide the little black switch on the underside of the candle toward the "ON" legend embossed next to the switch, and place it where you would normally place a real tea light -- this could be inside a frosted glass jar or simply placed somewhere and not covered at all.

The candle will spring to life immediately after you turn its switch on.

To neutralise the candle, simply slide that little switch on its underside the other way (toward the "OFF" legend).

To change the batteries in the LED Tea Light, turn it upside-down, unclip and remove the battery door, buy yourself an airline ticket and fly yourself plus the battery door to Hollywood (put it in checked baggage if necessary), bring it to the set of the new movie, "Halloween VI: Season of the Itch", have the special effects crew grind it into microscopic bits to have those itty bitty bits implanted into millions of rolls of bungwipe, and...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So save your airfare & just set it aside instead.

Remove the used AAA cells from the battery chamber in the base, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

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

Place the battery door back onto the candle portion, and snap it into place.

Aren't you glad that you didn't fly that battery door to Hollywood where it would get ground into microscopic bits for the sake of some phoney-bologna fake Halloween movie now?

Unable to measure current usage due to how the product was constructed and how it functions.

The LED Tea Light is a household lamp, not a flashlight. So I won't hit it against the concrete floor of a patio, throw it in the toilet, stomp on it, throw it against a wall, run over it with a 450lb electric wheelchair, let my mother's cats, my sister's kitty, or my own adorable little fuzzbomb piddle (uranate) on it, sit on it really hard, or subject it to any other potentially destructive tests that a regular flashlight might be subject to. So this section of the web page will appear more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Video that shows the LED Tea Light flickering.

That music that you hear is the jingle to the Silver Shamrock TV commercial that played on the movie, "Halloween V: Season of the Bitch"...er...um...I mean, "HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH".

This product is not sound-sensitive in any manner; the music may safely be ignored or even muted if it pisses you off.

O boy, a flickering light!
So thrilling!!
So pulse-racing!!!
Actually, it kinda makes you want to "kik" "uh" "Jak"-"Oh"-"Lantirn" "ovur" & "thenn" "proseed" "tu" "bete" "thuh" "livengg" "tweadle" "owt" "uv" "itt" "withh" "thuh" "handel" "uv" "ahn" "olld" "orr" "uzed" "ho" (the gardening tool, not the other kind hahaha!!!) doesn't it?

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Battery powered and safe for use around flammable materials

Seems a bit large for a tea light; however the rather easily-available batteries it uses make up for this

Flickering appears rather artificial (this is what nocked the most stars off its rating)
