This is an LED-based "pillar candle", but there is no messy dripping wax, no flame, no smoke, no messy soot, and no odour. These candles 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 it gets nocked to the floor (assuming that it did not become broken at impact), just pick it up and place it back where you found it. No fuss, no muss.

What makes this LED candle different though is that it can play any of three Christmas songs with the push of a button!

It has a white plastic base; the remainder of the candle is real wax.
The wax sides show a picture of a snowman family in a wintry scene.

* Product was marked as costing $9.99 on the tag, but it was on deep discount for reasons as-of-yet known.

* Product was not found on the Right Aid website; this URL simply leads to their 'front door'.


To use the LED Musical Pillar Candle, feed it first (see directly below) and (if desired) remove the transparent plastic sleeve from around the candle. I removed this sleeve on mine to make the product easier to photograph.

To turn it on, 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 pillar candle.

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

Any time the candle is on, you can have it play any of three Christmas carols by pressing & releasing the white oval button on the underside of the candle (exactly on the opposite side of the candle as the black power switch).
The first time you push it, the song, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" comes out of the small speaker surrounding the LED "flame" inside the candle.
Press it again to silence it.
Press it again to hear, "Silent Night".
Press it again to silence it.
Press it again to hear, "Jingle Bells".
Press it again to silence it.

The songs will not just continually play; if the candle is left alone, the audio (sound) stops when the current song is finished.

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 Musical Pillar Candle, turn it upside-down, unclip and remove the battery door, gently place it on the living room floor, and use your foot to gently shove it under that Christmas tree you're always forgetting to water, and...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! 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 shove that battery door under that dead, dead Christmas tree now?

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

The LED Musical Pillar Candle 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.
