This is the real wax flameless candle that uses that same lighting technology as the candles found in attractions at the world's most renowned theme parks. An LED inside the candle projects warm golden light onto a plastic flame that vacillates like a wind-drawn wick. The candlelight's faithful movement is generated by like-pole magnets inside the candle and the flame that perpetually sway the light source like an actual flickering flame. The pillar candle has a 100% paraffin wax exterior with a cascading front edge that looks to be melting, resulting in accent lighting that's indistinguishable from a burning candle. The 4"-diameter candle produces a subtle vanilla scent, it has a timer that automatically turns the candle on for five hours at the same time every day, or it can be turned on manually. Requires two D batteries that provide up to 500 hours of light.
