The candle is awesome! I saw it at a friends house and had to have one for myself. It is the most real looking fake candle I have ever seen. The wick really does move just like it was burning. Only problem is that the picture on the page is misleading. I thought I was getting all 3 candles when in fact I only received 1. Just make sure you read exactly what you are getting.
I love, love these candles. The fire looks real. I tricked my husband and children by holding my hand over the fire. The only thing is I thought because of the picture that three were coming and had to order the other two later. But I'm happy with my candles. I am going to buy more,
You need to look close to see that this candle is not real thing. The flame flicker moves randomly and it is amazing. Another big plus: timer. You can set several candles to switch on at the same time, for example 6 pm in the evening and they will be on for 5 hours and switch off at 11pm. The next day the cycle repeats. So all you need to do is change batteries. We decided to buy rechargeable batteries to save in a long run. These candles are perfect!
Even at Overstock, these candles are not cheap. They aren't an item that most people purchase by the dozen. It is hard to imagine how much more perfect the decorating industry can make a candle. The plug is eliminated, fire danger doesn't exist, no more spending time before you go to bed or leave the house blowing out candles (these can be on a timer). They feel like a real candle because they are made from wax. I wash my real candles by hand with cold water and gentle soap; I would take a chance and do the same with these except I wouldn't allow water to run over them. I can't imagine how much money I've spent on candles across the decades; these should last for years! Get some. Young people should begin collecting them each year.
These battery operated candles have the most realistic flame when lit that I have ever seen. I love the timer feature and mine ( I have three) come on automatically at 5:30 pm and go off at 10:30 pm every night. I have given many as gifts.
I bought these based on other reviews. The other reviewers were correct, these really are worth the extra money if you enjoy candles. I ordered two and have them inside a lightly frosted pillar holder and unless you look right in, it is hard to tell that these are not real. I would also say that this brand is as good as the original name brand in quality. I would be surprised to find anyone disappointed with these unless they expect them to be exactly like a fire flame candle. Very nice!
These candles are of high quality and seem to be durable, as one of mine has run 24-hours a day and the other two with their built-in timers every day for at least a year. I like the amber color of the LED that matches my other flameless candles as opposed to the Luminara brand with a yellowish light. The only thing I do not like is the wavy top edge that limits the view from the back. Mystique is now making a flat-top version under a different name. I bought one for my dining room table, and it is amazing! It looks like a just-lit, real flame from any side.
Really good effect (if a little price). Better for something set on a shelf rather than in front of you on a table. When looking "down" on it you see a hole and a little plastic part bobbing around - not a flame. Overall good quality. Wish they made them in 2" diameter.
At first blush I felt that this product is mis-represented. The picture in the ad shows 3 candles and that's what I thought I purchased. After more carefully re-reading the description of the candle I understand that this is for a single candle. Personally I think the display should be more accurately represented. The single candle arrived very quickly and the recipient was happy with the gift. The candle works very well and is easy to turn on and off.
I bought one for my home. At a distance it looks really good. They make great candles for wall sconces or in a place that is unattended. The light is warm and flickers. People thought it was real until I pointed out that it was not. I bought a second one for a gift.
Really loved these candles when I first received them. The flame looked very real and the flickering against darken walls added a lot of ambiance. The timer feature is really neat. Once you set them, you don't have to remember to turn them off. Much to my dismay, one of the candles lasted less than a month. It comes on for a few minutes then goes out. So sad! Would have loved to displayed all three, but now only two adorn my table.
