These have their own unique place in the Flame Light scheme of things.
More than anything, they solve a big problem wherein you need a flame effect but for any of a hundred different reasons, can't have a plug-in device.
To the rescue: one very robust battery powered unit that'll more than suffice for parties, stage events, show, plays, operas and home use.
They might also make for a fun romantic bedroom special effect, or dinnertime mood enhance-ment (instead of candles, for instance).
In any event, you'll have just one more level of useful display options.
Let the burning begin
Photo Above :
Using it as a handheld
This can be great fun, and
highly effective for plays or
other stage events.
Perfect for Halloween effects,
and night-time parades, as well.
Aaaaargh...major apologies on the clip quality, but
at least it'll give some visual idea of how it performs.
While not quite as bright as our regular plug-in AC type Flame Lights, this can be a good thing,
since there'll be plenty of occasions when you won't want an overpowering effect in the room to begin with.
And the fact these are compact, self-contained, and quite portable makes them
very attractive for certain uses, and more effective than a electric flamer.
As you shall soon see when you have one in hand, they're extremely well designed,
with a lot of apparent thought put into it making them as utilitarian as possible.
You can zoom from tabletop mode, to wall mount, to hanging chain, to handheld in a flash.
The 'legs' actually double as secure fasteners when attaching the handle (quite clever).
Essentially, what you'll be getting are:
1. Flame Light Bowl
2. Detachable handle
3. Wall mount bracket ( 2 screws are included)
4. Hanging chain (black)
5. Built-in legs for desktop use
These take 4 widely-available AA size batteries. And since you'll be powering both
motor and lights, we highly recommend you use alkaline or rechargeable batteries.
Expect a full day's use out of a fresh set, so you'll basically be covered for a special occasion.
In reality, you can expect multiple days/weeks of use if in fact it's
turned on for only several hours at a time.
Several copies of these have emerged over the last year, some 'almost' as good, some not so good.
You're getting the original high quality version from the factory that originated them.
We're sticking with this model (though more expensive) because it's problem-free.
More importantly, though, the flame color is just about as perfect a flame effect rendering as it's possible to get.

Retractable legs are useful for either
tabletop use or as a locking mechanism
for handgrip...these come included
and are built in to the base.
SUMMARY OF POSSIBLE USES:

Night-time Parades Trade Show Displays Halloween (for absolute sure !) Christmas decorations Easter decorations
Make a Fake Fireplace
Hot Tub Rooms
Backyard or patio get-togethers
QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS :
My 13 year old daughter is playing Lumiere in a school production of
Beauty and the Beast. Are these light enough that I could incorporate them
into her costume and she could hold them up? Let me know what each unit weighs.
- Jim S.
Hey there Jim !
Yeppp.....relatively speaking, these are about as weightless as you can get.
If you're using just the bowl part with 4 batteries installed,
you're looking at only 10 ounces (bowl 7 oz plus batteries 3 oz).
If using with the handle, add 2 ounces, or 12 ounces total.
These have been used before in Beauty and the Beast, Wizard of Oz (witches' brooms),
and many other plays and theatrical productions (see video below).
Mainly used because they're quiet, small, and, of course, lightweight.
Can I use this to make a fake fireplace ?
- Derek L.
Surely ! At only six inches diameter, this is easily concealable in a pile of logs.
Too, you can order up the optional AC/DC plug-in adaptor for continuous use
without batteries. Depending on the size of your fireplace, either 1 or 2 will do the job nicely.
How long do the bulbs last ?
- John M.
Actually the bulbs will probably outlast you and I both....these are the new generation of
superbright L.E.D.'s, which likely are good for 5000-10,000 hrs of nonstop
use each....they're extremely durable.
We sold several thousand of another item using the same type bulb, starting about 3 years ago,
and have yet to get a report back of bulbs going out. Besides which, the bulbs aren't
replaceable anyway (that's how confident the manufacturers are about them).
Hi there. Trying to incorporate this into my costume but I would need to
have it strapped to my head. LOL!! Can you tell me what the unit weighs
WITH the batteries. Thanks so much. Dee.
- Dee J.
Hi there Dee ! Only 10 ounces with the 4 AA batteries installed, hardly noticeable, really.
This is roughly as much weight as a medium size paperback book (200 pgs).
The headset thing has already been tried with wondrous results in a variety of plays.
See the video clip HERE for one wildly irreverent Xmas performance (Sydney Opera House, Dec 2009).
Clever use of battery flamer as a 'fake fireplace :
Thanx to Richard / Netherlands for the picture !
A FEW RECENT COMMENTS ......
Thanks so much. I will be using this inside two fireplaces for playhouses that are being built
for a charitable cause. This looks like it will give me the effect I am looking for !
Have a great day.
LOVE THE FLAME LIGHT!!! PERFECT FOR OUR PRODUCTION~FAST SHIP~GOOD PRICE~A++++++
- Dave M.
Probably the best seller I've ever dealt with.....Flame lights were AWESOME
What I didn't have room to say was that I'm THRILLED to have finally found these flame lights!
I've been looking all over everywhere for this specific model to replace the one I dropped & broke last year.
Did several "flame light" searches, but didn't find you till late..... I had ordered and
tried many different types, none of which was right, because all threw way too much light
for use in a blacklight setting. 5 were also too noisy.
Anyway this thing is way cool and better than the one I broke. Hot tub room looks much better !
- Jennifer L.
OMG!!! So great. I can't tell you how pleased I am. LIGHT AS A FEATHER TOO!
MORE PREVIOUS BUYER COMMENTS .....
If you need further convincing (a concept we understand quite well....we're the most sceptical
buyers on earth), here's a link with a hodgepodge of raving comments from past buyers on a
variety of our models of Flame Lights (both battery and AC types).
These comments also contain a bunch of novel ideas for using them
such as fireplace displays, trade show exhibits etc.
Special thanx to everyone who took the time to send these in (!)
FLAME LIGHT TESTIMONIALS, USES, TIPS, TRICKS :
(opens in separate page)
These take four 'AA' size batteries, and we
highly recommend the alkaline type shown
in the picture at left
Alkalines provide much greater longevity
and power (especially important where
there's a motor involved.
Alkalines simply have more on-demand 'oomph').
Rechargeables are very good, too.
Need a bigger Battery Flamer ?
Got 'em !
Click on picture above to check out a new, and larger battery flamer.
Long lasting, though heavier and bulkier, so not really
useable for costume or headset use.
But good for a big flame effect where you don't have
an AC outlet.
OPTIONAL AC / DC ADAPTORS
All our Battery flamers have a built-in DC input jack
just in case you want to plug them in without using batteries

SUPERSONIC, and on good days, LIGHTSPEED shipping
Items usually fly out of here straightaway, and with great fanfare
(fireworks, marching band, dancing girls, that kind of thing),
so your friendly mailman should be ringing your doorbell soon after.
Buyer Quote :
"Tell the truth-it was in the mail BEFORE I ordered, right ?"
"Seller employs delivery methods years ahead of our time"
"Dude, the quickness of your response borders on scary, but I certainly appreciate it."
And this, just in:
"Can't believe this. Immediately after I hit the 'pay now' button,
my doorbell rang. The package was at the door. Go figure."
SHIPPED FROM HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, USA
(except for occasional remote warehouse dropships to save time, of course)
Usually orders zoom out of Mission Control here either same or next day as
receipt of payment (before about 3 p.m. PST usually makes it out that day).
California residents expect to add sales tax at checkout for the gods of commerce here.
Our elected leaders of all that is need new limos, jets, other stuff now and again. Hope that's ok.
SHIPPING TO MILITARY APO ADDRESSES
Easily done !
And, postal USPS basically only charges domestic U.S. ship costs
to foreign APO addresses, no matter where you are out there.
WE SHIP WORLDWIDE
We've shipped stuff to just about everywhere on the planet. Do keep in mind that some
countries may assess customs duties or fees upon arrival (often not, but sometimes yes).

America only, and only via slow-boat UPS ground.
