These are pretty much exactly what I needed. As shipped I have no doubt they would burn for 100+ hours.

Pros:
- plastic jar is essentially shatter proof.
- cap for each candle to ensure you don't lose any fuel.
- very easy to use.
- Set of three is less expensive than buying one at a time.

Cons:
- Quite a small flame. Sure, this will keep you from being in the dark, yet it's far less than a typical candle flame.
- Zero instructions on whether or not you can adjust the flame by pulling the wick further out. I do not intend to attempt this as I don't want a lamp oil mess on my hands, yet addressing it would be helpful.

Overall a very good product that will certainly come in handy should they be needed.

Hope that helps.

Writing by the light of two of these in the post Sandy blackout. Been using them since last Monday night. Not really a good primary source of light for tasks as the flame is small. But great as a long lasting source of basic light in each room of the house and are much safer and longer lasting than candles. Plan to put another half dozen in the emergency kit for next time.

During the freak ice storm of October 2011, our household lost power for a week, and we just couldn't manage getting the lot of us into a hotel (as if rooms were available anywhere). Fortunately I had already purchased several of these candles against such a possibility, and they performed brilliantly. It was a comfort to know that every night without power we would at least have a lasting light in a lavatory or on a kitchen table so we could get about.

As soon as the power came back up, we ordered a new batch to replace what we'd used. We think that any household susceptible to a power outage should own a few of these.

Just what the item description states - 100 hours of candle light. I used them for 10-12 hours for 4 nights recently during hurricane sandy and have half candles are still left.
Pros:
1. Easy to handle. In fact a no-brainer.
2. Steady light - no odor, no fumes
Cons:
1. Careful while moving them about - the wicks are small and a small whiff could turn off the candle
2. Tough to re-cap when they are turned off. Careful, the edges are sharp.

I bought some of these to keep in our emergency supplies in case of a power cut. The jar is made of clear plastic which is surprisingly tough, it survived being dropped on the kitchen floor. As already mentioned the light output isn't really that great but it's certainly better than nothing and beats stumbling round a darkened house.

A word about the light output, yes you can increase the output but you then decrease the run time. If you take a pair of needle nose pliers you can GENTLY pull the wick out A LITTLE BIT and this will give more light. Note that you cannot slide the wick back in should you change your mind and as I said before this will decrease the run time.

As for the flame being blown out if moved from room to room or outside there is a clear plastic "globe" that you can get to help protect the flame and protect inquisitive fingers from the flame. You can find them here:

100 Hour Emergency Candle Fire-Safety Top (Clear), Fits on Emergency Candles to Prevent Open Flame

All in all these are good to have around should the lights go out.

I always have a few emergency candles during camping trips and this product never fails to impress me. It's no different from an old kerosene lamp and I remember sitting outside my tent and reading by its ample flame. Light is very bright though I don't recommend using in small, confined spaces just because soot accumulation. However this is one of the few products that is indispensable in an emergency.

It isn't very bright, but is probably almost as bright as a small candle. Unfortunately, it blows out very easily. It certainly couldn't be used outside because a slight breeze would blow it out. Even inside, it is hard to move from one room to another without it going out. At the same time, it is 100 hours of light, which is impressive given its size and weight. Admittedly, I did not verify that it would burn 100 hours, but after 4 hours, I can't see that the fuel level has gone down any at all.

these candles burn clean and are great and last the full 100 hours that they claim, I live in a power outage prone area ie. lots of trees interfering with powerlines etc. and these work great. I stock up on them.

Have not tried to use yet, but 2 of the 3 arrived leaky in an oil-stained box. Not a ringing endorsement.
