5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely soft light - easy to use, I'm very happy, 18 Aug 2013

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was pleasantly surprised by these candles. As a new mum, I wanted to have a low light for breastfeeding at night. Obviously I wouldn't want to use real candles as I'm knackered all the time and am pretty sure I would manage to burn the house down with real flames! These are a lovely substitute.

The charging mechanism is simple - a plug with two ends, which plug into the candles. Other reviewers mention that the charge did not work, or did not last for very long, but I didn't have this experience myself. I charged the candles for quite a long time initially, and since then have just popped them on to charge for top ups every once in a while. I use them throughout the night and often fall asleep with the candles still on, and the charge seems to last for a few days easily. The lights turn on and off using a 'tip' mechanism, which I find very easy and intuitive to use - you literally just tip the candle on its side to turn it on or off. Very easy.

What doesn't work so well? Well, I have a few small gripes, though nothing huge. I did have a slight problem with charging on one occasion - one candle didn't charge at all, despite having been plugged in for hours. On reflection, I think I did not push the plug in to that candle as firmly as I should have. It's never happened again. My only other slight gripe is that there is no way of telling how much charge is left on the candles, so it's hard to know when to plug them in to recharge until they actually run out. But for the price that is not really a problem.

The quality of the light is really pleasant and much nicer than I was expecting from what is essentially a fake candle! It's a sort of low, warm flickering glow. I find it perfect for breastfeeding. It casts quite a low light, so you would probably want to use these candles to add to other light sources rather than to light a room on their own. If you wanted to do that, you would want to buy more of these candles - say, four or five. These two are proving to be a lovely calming addition to the night-time lighting in my bedroom.
