Flickering Flameless Candles

I received the Flickering Flameless Candles through a promotion.

Product Info:
  • 5", 6", and 7" candles
  • Remote control 
  • Timer: 2, 4, 6, and 8 hours
  • Brightness level options
  • Static flickering light options
  • Each candle takes 3 AAA batteries (Not included
The flameless candles are cute addition to decors in any room of the home or office.

Each of the three candles takes three AAA batteries. Although the flameless candle claims to be energy saving, it does take a quite a bit of batteries and energy to make these candles work. Having 9 AAA batteries around the house isn't something I always have available.

The candles are able to be turned off or set onto a timer. This helps limit the amount of time the candles are on and helps limit the amount of energy the candles use.

The candles provide a warm glow.

The "flame" portion of the candle did concern me. The plastic flame is very thin and seems flimsy. The flame is attached to a very thin shaft.

Air movement helps move the plastic flame to create the candle or flame appearance.

Although the flameless candle claims to be safe to use around children and pets, the plastic flame of the candle seems a bit too fragile to be used or left where children or pets can reach the candles.

The remote takes a CR2025 battery that can be changed if the original one that comes with the product dies.

The remote allows you to set the timers, turn on and off the candles, and change different settings. These settings include the brightness of the warm light and the speed of the movement for the flickering light.
