    Promising review: "If you're looking for an easy way to light candles, look no further. I've had this thing for a couple months now and I've only had to charge it once! I got tired of using matches and regular lighters to light the candles around my apartment and was initially going to buy one of those elongated neck lighters with the trigger. Thank goodness I decided to go with this electric lighter instead. Easy to use, no gas or fuel required, and the battery lasts a long time. Also, it's super convenient to not have to tilt each candle in order to light it!" β€”Matt S.

    Promising review: "So far I am very happy with this mug warmer. I have an old mug warmer at work that works great, but I work from home most of the time so wanted a new one for the house. The most important part is that it does keep my tea quite hot if left there immediately after brewing it, and if I’ve left it around and it’s cooled, it does slowly heat up just like my old one does." β€”Ravenclaw98
