Reallite candles are battery operated, genuine wax candles. Using an LED light and patented electromagnetic technology, Reallite features a moving flame that shines and dances around, creating the realistic illusion of a true burning candle. Reallite candles uses two AA batteries and offer a smart-timer. The smart-timer will illuminate the candle at the same time each day and stay lit for 5 hours, automatically turning itself off. No dripping, no smoke, no burns, no mess, no heat, no worries.
