Vessel Candela Lamps - Product Review
Let There Be Light
are a standard go-to gift. That’s why the twist-on-the-old-favorite
Candela line from Vessel is a breath of fresh air. The
small, portable, rechargeable, battery-powered lamps radiate
the soft glow of a candle without smoke, mess from wax
spills or danger when left unattended. Perfect for the
outdoors on a breezy evening or indoors when you're reading
in bed, these little pillars of light remain lit for five
hours and fully recharge within sixteen. As a safety feature,
they turn on automatically during a power outage, so there’s
always a convenient light source at hand. Each lamp also
has an on/off switch.
tried the Candela four-lamp set with recharger in a dark
room. Although small in size, we were surprised at the
amount of light they threw off without being blaringly
bright, and the romantic quotient so often associated
with candles still remained. When accessing the battery
and bulb, it was easy to disassemble and more importantly
to reassemble. And the sleek and modern design looked
good even in a more traditional setting. This set
retails for $69; a wide variety of additional lamps range
in price from $39 to $129.
