So I had a craft project to make that required glowing, color changing lights. Since I don’t know jack about electrical thingamabobs, I decided to buy these candles and pull the mechanisms out and use them. It worked perfectly! Since they’re real wax, it was very easy to get down to the light itself, I only had to cut through one thin layer of plastic. Once I got it out, the light was INSANELY bright which was perfect! Everything still works as advertised without the wax, and the batteries in these things have so far lasted a very long time. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is because the ONE color that I really needed (orange) does not work at all. It lights up, but it’s so dull that it’s almost colorless.
