Ambilux has made such a neat and harmless candle. It still gives the look of a candle but is bright enough to be a light. The candle requires two size D batteries but comes with a remote that has batteries. The wick moves back forth just like a real candle which is cute especially when the kids try and blow it out. It is alao a wax feel on the outside to really give it the candle look. I really have enjoyed useing this on my nightstand so i can see just a little when getting around in the dark. This is a really great idea and i am goignt o look into getting more of these for around the house. I would also recommend these too others looking for a nice decoration that is functional. I received this product for free in exchange for my complete and honest review.
