The Juliet candle is a small integrated LED candle module that simulates the natural flicker of a candle. In its default mode, it accurately replicates the flicker pattern of a tea light, while it can be easily switched into a high flicker pillar candle mode if desired.
The candle has a total of 100 seconds of flicker profiles stored onboard, split between low flicker (tea light), and high flicker (pillar candle). These profiles are based off of recordings of real candles, and on startup, the candles start at a random point in the recording to avoid syncing between multiple candles. However, if you have more than 18 candles on stage, there is a 50% chance that two or more will start up at the same place in the data.
From the factory, we have four candle profiles available: A, B, C, & D. If you do not specify upon ordering, we’ll ship you profile A; if you order more than 18 units, we’ll ship you a mixed group to avoid syncing.
The candle is available without a power supply, or with attached or separate power supplies in a variety of shapes and sizes. See below for power supply options.
The candle is also available with an optional Integrated Light Sensor. This sensor is easily calibrated to turn the candle off when the light drops below a certain level, allowing the candle to turn off on its own during blackouts. For complete details on the Light Sensor's functionality, please see the specs below.
Available in Amber, White, Red, Green, and Blue.
Micro Tealight (add $3)
This is a standard configuration that allows the candle to sit upright without additional support. The candle is factory soldered to a CR2032 battery holder, giving it an overall size of 1.25″ x 0.875″ x 0.875″ tall.
In this configuration, the only way to turn the candle on or off is to install or remove the battery. Add-on boards cannot be attached, since the board is tight to the battery holder.
A CR2032 battery has a capacity of 225mAh at 3V, allowing the candle to run for approximately 4 hours at full brightness.
Our White candles require a slightly higher voltage, so we supply them with an additional 5V voltage regulator, allowing you to use two CR1032 batteries in the standard holder rather than a single CR2032.
2x or 3x AAA Battery With Switch (add $3)
We can supply the candle attached to a battery holder that takes 2 AAA batteries and has an on/off switch. We can also supply this battery holder separately, without attaching it to the candle. AAA batteries have a capacity of approximately 1000mAh, allowing one candle to operate for 20 hours before starting to dim. You can also run up to 10 candles off of this single battery pack.
Our White candles require a slightly higher voltage, so we supply them with a 3 AAA holder; all others will be supplied with a 2 AAA holder.
2x or 3x AA Battery with Switch (add $3)
We can also supply the candle attached (or not) to a battery holder that takes 2 AA batteries, again with a switch. Two AA batteries will power one candle for about 40 hours, and can run up to 20 candles.
Again, since our White candles require a slightly higher voltage, we supply them
with a 3 AA holder; all others will be supplied with a 2 AA holder.
1x AAA battery with switch and boost (add $5)
Particularly for taper candles, having a skinny battery pack is preferred. We can supply a AAA battery with a boost circuit that raises its voltage to 3.3V. The boost circuit is about 80% efficient, so you will get approximately 6-8 hours of capacity from a single AAA battery.
AC Supply (add $5)
This is a plug-in power supply, which connects to 120V AC power (or a dimmer), and can power up to 10 candles. Dimming the AC supply is not recommended; please provide 100% or 0% to avoid unpredictable behavior.
