Fiji Flame is a self-charging lantern containing LED bulbs that have been designed to give off flickering illumination that looks like firelight. This lantern has been created as an alternative to the traditional tiki torch that must be filled with fluid and then lit with a real flame. It's specified that the sun will charge each lantern if you leave it out during the daytime, and then it'll provide you with light at night, although each one also has a built-in power switch.
The cost of Fiji Flame is $19.99 plus $9.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Fiji Flame at the discounted price of only $9.99 for a total price of $39.97.
Before you set up your Fiji Flame, you'll need to decide on the height that you want it to be, and adjust its customizable post accordingly. You'll be able to quickly adjust it again if you find that the height you've chosen isn't ideal for you.
Once you've adjusted your pole, you'll need to slide the stake at the bottom into some soil. This could be soil from your backyard or garden, or if there are no large patches of soil available, you could insert the stake into the soil of a potted plant.
If it's daytime, it's best to leave your Fiji Flame where it is and let the sun charge it until nighttime, when it'll automatically turn on. However, if you want to turn the lantern on immediately, you can use the power switch near the top of the lantern's post to flick it on. Either way, it should light up with the appearance of ambient yellow flames. If by chance it doesn't light up, it'll need to sit in the sun and charge for a while.
When you're getting ready to head inside, it's a good idea to use the power switch on your lantern's post to flick it off, in order to conserve the lantern's power.
Each Fiji Flame lantern contains firelight LED bulbs. True to their name, these bulbs have been designed to look like fire, and a diffuser lens has also been added on top of them to enhance this look. Therefore, as your lantern "burns, " its faux flames will look rather peaceful and soothing, as opposed to being blindingly bright.
While a regular flame will immediately go out if it's hit with rain, this particular lantern is waterproof, so it'll keep functioning as normal while it's raining. It'll even be able to tolerate snow without turning itself off or getting damaged.
Once one of these lanterns is charged, it'll give you up to several hours of light without needing to be charged by the sun again. In most cases, it'll offer you illumination for an entire evening party, so you won't have to worry about turning on other lamps or overhead lights. Similarly, the life of each lantern will be a long one in general, even if you use yours frequently, as LED bulbs can burn for up to 100, 000 hours before they burn out permanently.
The exterior of each Fiji Flame lantern will always stay cool to the touch, so it's safe to use around children and pets. Even if a pet brushes against the lantern or a child literally walks up and touches it, they'll emerge from the situation without burns.
With its post extended to its full height, this lantern can stand almost as tall as an average adult. On the other hand, though, its post can be adjusted so that it only stands about a couple of feet tall. If you move your lantern around from place to place, depending on your needs, you may want to adjust its height each time.
Since the Fiji Flame is mainly solar-powered, you'll never have to plug it into electricity when you want to run it. That means you won't ever have to choose its location based on the availability of open electrical outlets. Plus, unlike strings of lights that you might use to decorate your deck or patio, this lantern doesn't come with any wires that might snap.
This lantern is automatically safer than a tiki torch, because it doesn't have a real flame that could singe you, but it can also enhance the safety of your household in other ways. If you place one or more of these lanterns next to a pool or a play structure as your children play, it may save them from falling in the pool or getting injured. Along the same lines, if you use one or more of these to light a pathway through your yard or garden, this will help you avoid obstacles you could trip over.
If you're looking to create a romantic mood for yourself and your significant other on a deck, on a patio, or in your backyard, you may find that this lantern comes in handy. It'll offer you enough light that you'll be able to see each other's faces, but not so much that it'll disturb you as you talk, touch, and flirt. Its light also won't be bright enough to enable your neighbors to see everything you're doing as you enjoy your date night.
Those people who like to walk around in nature alone, especially in unfamiliar places, will be able to shorten their lantern's post and take it along with them as a flashlight. While it won't shine quite as brightly as an ordinary flashlight, it should provide you with enough light that you'll be able to see where you're going and what's up ahead. As a result, you'll be less likely to get lost in wooded areas or unexpectedly encounter unfamiliar animals.
The Fiji Flame lantern will only give off one color of light: a shade of yellow that closely resembles the color of real flames. This may be satisfying to some, but other users might be disappointed that they can't make the lantern emit other colors of light. It would be helpful if the option of changing the light's color with a hand-held remote control could be made available. That way, users could provide themselves with white light, blue light, or even less traditional colors of light, according to their preferences.
If you want to add a great deal of illumination to your front yard, your backyard, or your driveway, you could take the time to install multiple electrical spotlights or floodlights. This might take you several hours, even with help from someone else, but alternatively, you could set up multiple Fiji Flames in a matter of minutes. The lights don't need to be wired, only placed firmly in the ground, so as long as you've got some soil available, this shouldn't take more than a half-hour.
