Bethlehem Lights 8.5" Aqua Flame Flameless Candle w/Timer
battery versus plug-in
I ordered four of these (two sand and two apricot).
One for my father-in-law who lives at Veteran's home and wanted the fountain-sound and subdued lighting on a timer.
Apricot looks more like a dark vanilla/deep tea-stained when lit up.
Sand - looks white when lit.
On Battery power -- Timer and water "flame" all work but you'll need to use the plug-in if you want to hear the fountain quality. I guess it doesn't have the power it needs to make the bubble/gurgle/fountain-like sound. "Flickers" like a candle best on plug-in as well.
On plug-in -- works as seen on TV.
I purchased one on one of its first presentations and adore it. Since then, whenever I show my new house, everyone oohhhs and awes over it. I have gifted 3 of them since. A guaranteed perfect gift! Long battery life (haven't changed batteries yet-it's been, at least, 3 months). Highly recommend!
I Love Mine
I bought two, one for me and one as a gift. Mine works great and the light and sound are lovely. I hope the one I bought as a gift works as well. I am ordering one more as a gift as my daughter loved mine.
Trying Another One
I said I would recommend this product to a friend, and as of right now, I will.
My husband and I finally got to use this candle last night, after purchasing it on Dec 12th.. I had it on my wood coffee table as a centerpiece
This afternoon when he went to pick up the remote for the tv sitting on the coffee table, it was in a puddle of water since the distilled water needed to make this candle work had leaked all over the table... actually leaving water marks all over the wood.
I have called Customer Service because it evidently is defective and they say it will not cost me another penny for the S&H to send it back , nor for a new replacement one to be sent........... QVC paying also the S&H for the new one to be sent
So, I am "trying another one".
Of course, this time I will initially NOT put it on my table... but, somewhere it won't ruin if it's again defective.
If it happens a 2nd time... That's it and I will let you know.
Ordered this for my daughter and it worked for two days then water leaked everywhere and she can't find the leak
Cracked and leaked all over. Wanted it to work. Like the idea. Please redo so it works without leaking
I bought three as gifts this year and I am coming back to order one for myself. They sound great and look beautiful. Love the timer feature.
I was so excited to set two of these candles on the guest bedroom nightstands for family visiting for Christmas. The water sounds were exactly what I was hoping for....very soothing and calming. Within just a few moments water began leaking out from cracks in the wax in both candles. I won't risk ordering them again and am sending them back. Very disappointed. I gave one star because it's required. The two I received don't deserve any stars.
LOVE TO LISTEN
THESE CANDLES ARE SO NICE I PURCHASED 2 ONE FOR ME AND ONE FOR A FRIEND BUT KEPT BOTH THAT'S HOW NICE THEY ARE. LOVE TO FALL ASLEEP LISTENING TO THE WATER SOUNDS LIKE WHEN I LIVED UP IN SEQUOIA NATIONAL FOREST BY A STREAM THAT I WOULD HEAR EVERY NIGHT THE CANDLE ITS SELF IS VERY NICE I PUT SOME DRIED FLOWERS AROUND THE BASE TO MATCH MY BEDROOM DECOR..YOU WON'T BE SORRY IF YOU GET THEM
From looking at the other reviews I see I'm not the only one with this problem, what a great idea though, and it sounds great but who wants it if it leaks. I was careful not to overfill it and it still leaked out all over my expensive end table. I will try one more and if that one leaks too, I'm done. Looks like Bethlehem Lights needs to go back and redesign this because it is a great idea as long as it works properly.
Worst purchase Does not work
I have never written a review on a QVC product before but had to for this candle. One star is even too much for this product.
I love Bethlehem Lights but this candle is terrible. I really wanted it to work because it is a great idea but the pumps went out in 5 candles! 5! I exchanged mine 3 different times and none of the exchanges worked or the original. Also, the one I gave my mom as a gift stopped working. How embarrassing! I had to take it from her and returned it without an exchange. I don't know why the pumps are so bad but they need to be fixed before any more are sold and more customers are disappointed.
Bought several and gave away as a gifts! Great product!
My Mom bought her's first and then I had to have one or two!
