These are LED-based votive candles, 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 (assuming that the glass votive jar does not become broken), just pick them up and place them back where you found them. No fuss, no muss.

As you can see in the above photo, each votive jar has an inspirational saying on it, done in a beautiful combination of block lettering and cursive writing.

* This price is for three (3) units; this equates to a price of just $2.66 each!

To use the LED Glass Votive Candle, take the "candle" portion out of the glass votive jar, slide the little black switch on the underside of the candle toward the "ON" legend embossed next to the switch, and place it back in the votive jar.

The candle will spring to life as soon as you turn it on.

To neutralise the candle, simply remove it from the votive jar (don't worry about burning your fingers on the "flame"; that is simply not possible!), turn it upside-down, slide that little switch on its underside the other way (toward the "OFF" legend), and place it back in the jar.

To change the battery in the LED Glass Votive Candle, remove it from the votive jar, turn it upside-down, unclip & remove the battery hatch, gently place it on the floor, and use your foot to nudge it under the couch where a bunch of silverfish find it, sniff & snuffle at the damn thing for a moment, decide that it's (like totally) unpalatable dude, and subsequently relieve themselves on it...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Remove the used CR2032 lithium coin cell from the battery chamber in the base, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit. Tap the base of the LED Glass Votive Candle (the candle itself of course, not the glass jar!) on a firm surface if necessary to dislodge the cell.

Install a new CR2032 lithium coin cell in the chamber, button-end (-) negative end going in first.

Place the battery hatch back onto the candle portion, snap it into place, and put the candle back inside the votive jar.
Aren't you glad you didn't push the battery hatch under the couch with all of those hungry, hungry silverfish with full pissinary bladders now?

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

The LED Glass Votive 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.

The thing that concerns me here is how long the LED Glass Votive Candle will operate on that itty bitty coin cell. Due to the way it functions, I am not able to perform a machine-operated battery discharge analysis on it.

There is a plastic liner inside of each votive jar; this serves to elevate the candle off the bottom of the jar and keep it centered in the jar. If you prefer the "flame" to be lower inside the jar, you may remove this liner and place the "candle" directly into the votive jar.

Video on YourTube that shows the LED Glass Votive Candles flickering.

That music you hear is the song, "Feliz Navidad" by Hozay Feliciano.

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, flickering lights!
So thrilling!!
So pulse-racing!!!
Actually, it kinda makes you want to "kik" "wun" "uv" "thoze "waul-mowntid" "porselin" "uranators" "oph" "thuh" "wal" & "then" "proseed" "tu" "bete" "thuh" "livengg" "tweadle" "owt" "uv" "itt" "withh" "thuh" "handel" "uv" "ahn" "olld" "orr" "uzed" "shuval" doesn't it?

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Flickering effect is reasonably realistic; people might mistake them for real candles!
Battery powered and safe for use around flammable materials

Battery changing may be just a tad "fiddly"

It's that itty bitty coin cell -- lifetime per battery change could be a bit limited
