This will keep the dark out,
This review is from: Sterno Emergency Candles and Clear Mist
This liquid candle works as advertised. In a black out PROPERLY PLACED IN A SAFE AREA AWAY FROM DOGS, CATS AND KIDS this liquid candle will prevent you from stumbling around and last several days. Think! You only use it when it's dark! 12 hours at most? During a recent blackout we put one on the bathroom shelf and the light was sufficient to ,,,, well you get the idea.
We did put it out when we went to bed and in it's place used a light stick which kinda does the job. One thing we have learned is that you can never have too many of these candles in storage. They last almost forever! And you can never have too many light sticks either.
I highly recommend these candles, especially when it's dark! ~~LOL~~

Make sure the light sticks are white or yellow the other colors do nothing!

It's good to ask someone who has used one, smoke? black grit from this? I am on oxygen, so if I stay more than 5 feet away there can be a flame in the room but my lungs can't take regular candle smoke and the black residue they product? I'm desperate trying to find something to use other than a battery operated lantern that is heavy for me. Thanks.

My father was on constant oxygen. He used these candles when there was a black out. There is no smell, no residue, let's put it this way, they are not as bright as a Hurricane lamp but put in a safe place, i put one in a glass shelf in the bathroom for obvious reasons that was NOT close to the ceiling, it worked great. It all depends on safety. They dont spill if tipped over lit but will seep oil at a slow rate. Very slow. A safe way to use this is to place it in or on a metal pie plate on the stove, assuming you are not going to use the stove. Never sleep with it lit. As Far as the oxygen I truly believe you are safe.
God Bless feel better!
