Metamusing

I'd found a source of cheap battery-operated "tea candles" for use at an event I'm running in March. Naturally, I want to know how long the battery will last, which isn't noted on the packaging, so I brought one to work and it's now flickering beside a pile of papers and every now and then I glance over from whatever's the current task on this Friday afternoon to see if my candle has burnt out.

Not sure if they are similar, but our cheap battery Xmas candles operated on the same batteries for 10 hours every night for 4-plus weeks without burning out.

Not sure either? These are tiny, with little button batteries.

What happens when it goes out? Don't you then have a really big existential problem to deal with?

Then I get to go home? (but others say they'll last too long, argh! luckily I can also just shut it off ~_~ )

these will last much longer than the event. We used them extensively at the Crossroads at Canterbury event and many times since then.

And it seems to me, you live your life like a candle mannequin! Never knowing when the bulb will burn out, or the battery give in!

:P
