Give Me the Light

Seriously? A remote-controlled candle?


Attention, laid-back candle lovers: Finally, you can “burn” your flambeaus all night (and day) without worry. Mooncandle ($50), the first-ever, flameless color-changing lamp, functions exactly like a candle—sans the fuss. No need for matches or lighters or holders—AAA batteries will suffice. Even more convenient, the messy wick of the candle has been replaced by a color-changing LED light controlled by a remote—from wherever you sit in your now-romantically glowing room. With preset timers—for 4 and for 8 hours—the Mooncandle, created by Frostfire, proudly goes where no candle has gone before, in both function and beauty. With the ability to adjust the brightness and color, combined with 50,000 hours of shelf life, the candle can be placed just about anywhere indoors and out. Just make sure you don’t lose the remote.
