uses a 5mm LED warm-white bulb that mimics the color of a candle flame.
The LED is encased in a neatly designed alcove that captures the light
and brightly displays it in the shape of a typical candle bulb. Light
is directed outside, allowing you to keep every candle on throughout the
night, even in bedrooms. Indoor lighting will not affect
Illum-A-Window's™ ability to function properly; the unit's design
responds to outdoor light only. This is due to the light sensor being
embedded within the solar panel (which faces outside).
Cloudy day? Need Illum-A-Window™ to shine
brightly that particular evening? Illum-A-Window lifts right off the
suction cup! You can collect them all and place them around a bright
light bulb for the day. Illum-A-Window™ can remain brightly lit through
the night if it receives a full day of direct, bright sunshine. If you
are expecting similar results after a cloudy day, we do not recommend
that you purchase our candles.
Illum-A-Window™ works best when it receives Southern Exposure with direct sunlight.
The more light, the better! Lack of southern exposure, wooded areas,
window awnings and so forth will prevent Illum-A-Window™ from charging
properly. PLEASE READ OUR RETURNS POLICY AND THE SECTION BELOW TITLED: IS ILLUM-A-WINDOW™ RIGHT FOR ME? BEFORE DECIDING TO PURCHASE ILLUM-A-WINDOW™.
Our suction cups are ribbed to provide
premium results and are rated to hold much heavier objects so your
candles will stay put! Simply clean the area of the window (with
rubbing alcohol or a good glass cleaner) where the suction cup will be
used for exceptional adherence. Illum-A-Window™ also has a flat bottom
so you have the option to set it on a window sill.
Illum-A-Window™ is about five inches high, so it can fit in just about
any window and using the suction cup allows you to place Illum-A-Window™
in any window! Windows such as Side Lights or outbuildings with no
electricity can finally have candles too!

décor or add a holiday touch.
IS ILLUM-A-WINDOW™ RIGHT FOR ME?
Illum-A-Window™ must receive an ample amount of direct sunlight
to charge properly for the oncoming night. Lack of Southern Exposure
or obstructions such as trees, window awnings (or any other significant
obstructions) that would keep the candles from seeing direct sunlight
during the majority of the day will compromise the unit’s ability to
charge. If any of these situations apply to you, we do not recommend
that you purchase our candles.
Cloudy days do not typically allow enough bright light for Illum-A-Window™ to receive a full charge.
The image denoting the Sun’s pattern shows that the left side of the home is facing Due South. The left side of this house is ideal for Illum-A-Window™.
The maximum tolerance recommended for Illum-A-Window™ is if the home
were positioned along the line where dark green meets light green;
though slightly off-center from facing Due South, the left side of the
home would still see enough direct sunlight during the day to properly
charge Illum-A-Window™. Any further deviation would begin to compromise
the candles’ ability to receive enough direct sunlight during a typical
sunny day, and is therefore a condition in which we cannot recommend
Illum-A-Window™ for your home.
We want you to be sure of your particular
situation. So, to put it another way, if you can look out the windows
on the side of your home that you wish to use the candles and you can see the Sun
for the vast majority of the day, then you have the proper conditions
for Illum-A-Window™. If this scenario doesn’t apply to you, we cannot
recommend that you purchase our candles.
I want them, but my home doesn’t get enough sunlight…
So you like the features Illum-A-Window™ offers, but
your home doesn’t meet the requirements for the candles to work
successfully? Well, we have an answer. We can send the same candles
with the internal circuitry modified to accept typical alkaline AA
batteries such as Energizer® and Duracell®. The candles will look exactly
the same on the exterior- they’d even have the solar panel- it just
wouldn’t be wired into the system. (You never want to send a charge to
alkaline batteries). How effective is this modification? By using a
good alkaline AA battery as mentioned, a candles’ LED will shine
brightly for about 2 weeks straight, lit up 24/7, before you would need
to replace the battery. Taking the batteries out during the day would
make them last roughly a month before you’d need to replace them, should
you choose to do so. If you want these modified candles, simply attach a note to your purchase and let us know so we can modify your candles. You will need to supply your own batteries in this scenario.
With regard to using regular alkaline batteries
(Energizer®, Duracell®, etc.):
We do receive quite a few inquiries on using regular
alkaline batteries in our Illum-A-Window® candles. Initially, our tests using these kinds of batteries
looked promising; while alkaline batteries are not good at accepting a
re-charge, the batteries did last for 3-4 weeks in our regular, unmodified candles
before needing to be replaced. And,
while we still haven’t experienced a leak from any alkaline battery to this
point, we cannot consent to their use unless it is in our modified candles where
the solar panel sends no charge to the battery during the day. Why can’t we consent to alkaline battery usage in
our regular, unmodified candles? Simple:
alkaline batteries are capable of breaking
open and leaking when they receive a charge.
(We believe the reason we haven’t experienced a leak in our unmodified candles
is most likely due to the slow, minimal charge the solar panel sends to the
battery during the day, but it is not something we can, nor wish to guarantee.)
We do not accept returns for Illum-A-Window™. The reasons for this are as follows:
The parameters required for Illum-A-Window™ to perform correctly are
clearly explained here on our website so that the consumer is fully
educated in making his/her decision. While buyer’s remorse is
eliminated because of this, we also understand that many customers may
only use our product during the Holiday Season. We must therefore
consider the select few customers whom may use our candles for the weeks
around the Holiday Season, parties and so forth, fulfill their needs,
and then wish to return the candles for a refund. It is for these
reasons that we do not accept returns.
