Battery-operated candles eliminate any worry about open flame! With a timer option on the on/off switch, you can set the candle to come on at a time of your choosing, and stay on for 5 hours, then turn itself "off" and come back on at the same time the next day. The flickering/moving 'flame' gives the candle a real feel. 9"H, 3"diameter. 2AA batteries not included. 150+ hours battery run time.
