A few years ago I was walking through a gift store when I saw what I thought to be a lit pillar candle. Yet, there was no actual fire. It flickered and it had a flame. How could this be? The shop owner explained to me that the technology had been developed for Disney or maybe it was by Disney. At $54 for a single pillar candle they were very pricey. I held off for one year, then revisited the idea of getting one and decided again that they were just too pricey because they had not dropped in price.
My self control paid off…I found them for much less at a local store yesterday. A picture does not do them justice. I can’t capture how the flame flickers or how the wax pillar glows. I understand that there is a small oscillator inside which makes the flame “flicker.”
Mine has a switch on the bottom that turns the light off or on or you can set the timer. It will glow for six hours and then off until it comes on at the same time the next day. Two AA batteries are needed.
I put mine on the mantel. That side of the room can get a little dark.
