White Flicker Taper is a battery-operated taper candle with a white, wax coating and a plastic 'flame' that dances and glows for a realistic candle effect. Taper includes a built-in timer feature that allows it to stay on for 5 hours, then off for 19 hours, repeating the cycle automatically each day. Taper turns on and off easily with the push of a button on the base of the candle. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included). Measures 8" high.
