Flickering Wax LED Ornament, retail $3.99 (www.riteaid.com*)

This is a Christmas ball (Christmas tree ornament) that is made of wax and flickers like a real candle, 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 it falls on the floor, just pick it up (assuming that it did not become busted in the fall) and hang it back on your tree. No fuss, no muss.

To use the Flickering Wax LED Ornament, just slide the little black switch on the underside of the ornament toward the "ON" legend embossed next to the switch, and hang it where you would normally hang a Christmas ball.

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

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

To change the battery in the Flickering Wax LED Ornament, turn it upside-down, unscrew & remove the battery door, place it on the floor, and use your foot to gently push it under the Christmas tree that you're always forgetting to water...
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.

Install a new CR2032 cell in the compartment, orienting it so that its flat-end (+) positive faces outward.

Place the battery door back onto the ornament portion, and secure that ,little screw

Aren't you glad that you didn't push that battery door under that dead, dead tree now?

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

The Flickering Wax LED Ornament is a decorative Christmas ornament, 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.

Photograph of the Flickering Wax LED Ornament, "illuminurinated" of course.
We don't have a Christmas tree up yet (it's early-November for Christ sakes!!!) so I do not yet have a photograph of it hung in one.
