Flameless Candle Turns On With the Push of the Flame
January 9, 2017,
MINNEAPOLIS—An LED flameless candle that turns on with the push of the flame and can be blown out, developed by Liown Electronics, will debut at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, which opens tomorrow.
Liown's new Push Flame line
Called the Push Flame, the candle uses Liown’s patented-pending technology to allow the consumer to turn the flame on without looking for switches on the bottom of the candle, ideal for candles placed in hurricanes, displays or other difficult-to-access applications, a spokesperson said. The flame can either be pushed again to shut off, or blown out like a real flame. It also features a five-hour timer.
“Our 450 patents and patents pending are a testament to our focus on product innovation,” said Johnny Yang, CEO of Liown, one of the world’s largest suppliers of LED flameless candles and lighting, which is based in China. “We were able to create our latest Push Flame technology by using four uniquely programmed diodes that create patterns to simulate the flicker of a real candle through the use of shadows and light. With no moving parts, we are pleased to be able to offer this beautiful candle at a very competitive price.”
“This candle has the feel of a traditional burning candle and now has the really unique blow-out feature,” said Cynde Stewart, vice president of business development for Raz Imports, the exclusive importer of the Push Flame in the United States. “It will cost 30 percent less than our Moving Flame candles” because it has fewer moving parts.
