First off, I love LED candles! Many times I forgot to blow out my real candles at night.. not good! I like the natural, flickering glow, it looks realistic. They can individually be turned on and off by simply pointing the remote, or the timer can be set to automatically turn them off after 4, 6 or 8 hours. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the picture looks like the candles would be an amber color, but they are actually white. Still a gread deal!
