Electric Timer Candle
Convenience and light
I have used this timer window lights for years from Solutions. After over 10 years I had one that just didn't want to work even with new fuses and light bulbs. I have bought replacement bulbs for years to replace the ones that burned out though they last for at least 9 - 10 months using each day. I have bought them for my parents when they moved into their new home. Having used window lights for years that you have to manually turn on and off, they also were overjoyed that they no longer needed to do this.

I like these candles because they are so convenient - just plug them in and (in most cases) forget them. I had the older ones which only stayed on for 6 hours and I liked those as well. I prefer the new 8 hour timers, but the older candles were better made. The bases were metal which gave them some weight. This is important because when you put them on your window sill, the weight of the cord makes the new plastic base candles fall over. I did manage to manipulate the cords so that they stayed up, but I am always worrying that it won't take much more than a breath to knock them over. I ordered 20, and two of the timers didn't work, but Solutions quickly replaced them.

does not work
I had to place two orders in an attempt to get 3 candles that worked. My first order was for 4 electric candles and only 1 worked like it should. I sent the defective candles back and received 3 more..only 1 of them worked. I finally got so frustrated when I called customer service that I cancelled my entire order, which was a shame because I really liked the one that worked.

6 hrs on in lieu of 8 hrs. Longer Life.
The candle lights in general are good. I would like to see the ones that burn for 6 hrs in lieu of 8 hrs. Sometimes the lamps only last a couple or three years. I only use them during the Christmas season for about a month each year. Your would think that they would last longer since they are not used that much.

I love having candles in the windows at Christmas time and these candles make it easy!
I use them together with the plastic holders with suction cups that keep them on the windows.
I have been using them for years and have had only one or two that the timer was not perfect.

I bought 4 of these and wondered what took me so long to do it. They worked so well, I bought 2 more. Couldn't be happier!

This is a great electric candle
This is an attractive electric candle which does what it says it will do very well. I think they're great and much better than battery candles. I use them in windows at Christmas time and have had several for years. The timer is very precise and the cord is long enough to reach an outlet in most cases. The 8 hours starts when you plug it in, so you choose your time and don't have to touch it again (unless the power goes out). There are only two minor concerns for me. The 8 hour length can't be changed, so if you want it to turn off at bedtime as I do, it needs to turn on in the middle of the afternoon. The candle is not heavy so I use temporary painters tape to secure the candle which can easily be knocked off a sill.

Rarely works correctly.
Of the 8 purchased, only 4 worked correctly. Bulbs needed replacing after one day (must be old bulbs tht came w/ lights). Candlesticks need to be taped on windowsill as they are light (and cheap) and fall over if not taped down.
Waste of money.
