Be sure to read the main Kandela review, with images, my video and the manual first.
Kandela Showing up at TheWandCompany.com
Chris Barnardos art skills are really impressive. He just finished the graphics for the thewandcompany.com website featuring the Kandela. All the subtle lighting, flickering and cast light and shadows is really impressive. There is also a separate Kandela page, that shows a parchment Kandela manual with a candle and wand on top. It announces availability of the Kandela from Sept 28th 2010.
ShinyShiny recorded a video with Chris Barnardo’s partner Dawn who presents the Kandela at the firebox press event.

Kandela product description from TheWandCompany
KANDELA – Magical Wand & Enchanted Candle
Light the candle with a flourish of your wand – blow it out just like a real candle
The Kandela is the magical new product from The Wand Company. The Kandela includes a wand in the same high quality form as the Kymera but finished in a distressed ivory colourway, and comes with its very own enchanted candle.
- Light the candle with a flick of the wand from up to 4 metres away
- Extinguish the candle with a deft wiggle of the wand
- Blow out the candle just like a real candle
- Tap the wand twice when the candle is lit to set a sleep timer running that will turn the candle off in one hour.
With two LEDs, the candle flickers like a real burned-down candle, and as it’s made from a soft, resilient, high-quality plastic, the candle is safe and robust and with it’s elegant design is suitable for any room. Perfect for the dinner table or a bedroom nightlight.
