I love how candles can give a warm, cozy feeling to a room. But for some reason, I never light candles in my home. When I do light them, I have trouble remembering to extinguish them. I also worry about them burning down to the table if I’m not paying attention, and making a big mess. I even worry about using them up – thinking, “These are for special occasions” and then special never happens.
What if you could have the warm glow of real wax candles but with none of these constraints? Steve found the solution.
For Christmas, he bought me TECHLONG 3-Pack Flickering Flameless Candles. They’re flameless in the sense that there’s no fire, but instead, they have a wobbly LED light shaped like a flame. The normal gentle movement of air inside your home makes the fake flames move just like real fire does. They also flicker exactly like real fire on a candle wick. The TECHLONG flameless candles are made of real wax, so the wobbly LED flames cause a glow in the candles just like real fire.
Remember I said that I have trouble remembering to extinguish candles? TECHLONG candles can work on a timer, which you can control either with a switch on the bottom of them or using a remote control. How fun is that?
We had the TECHLONG candles in our bedroom for a week or so and while I liked them there, we eventually put them downstairs on the table under our TV. Every night we turn them on and they give a lovely glow to the room, and didn’t even have to hunt down a match.
The candles are powered by two C-cell batteries each, and they say they’ll last for 1000+ hours running continuously or 200 days on the shorter timer. I haven’t had them long enough to tell you whether the batteries last that long but we’ve tried the timer method and just turning them on and off when we’re done. Even if we forget to turn them off, our house won’t burn down as a result.
You can buy TECHLONG candles in sets of 3 like Steve bought me, or a set of 6, or even individual candles of different colors. The set of 3 ivory wax cancels Steve bought me are 3 inches in diameter, and 5, 6, and 7 inches tall and cost $33 on Amazon.
I am delighted to have remote-controlled candles in my life, no matter how silly that sounds.
