Ah I see...the demo vid makes the remote look a lot bigger...


Its probably because the candle is small. We have purposely design it so it looks similar to the White Candle you get in IKEA.

The candle is only 8cm tall and 6cm in diameter. Perfect for Close up performance.

Best,
Kelvin



at the moment I have 2 questions:

1. is it just similar to the ikea candles, or do they look same really standing next to each other?
2. how the usb charging port is hidden?

Hi there!

The Candle just style like a Ikea candle, but slightly smaller.

For the Charging port, it is hidden on the bottom, covered with a cover made with candle wax. The cover can only be removed with the magnet supplied.

Best,
Kelvin

^they said they modeled it after an IKEA candle but not sure it is exact. As for the charging port, apparently it comes with a thread spool that serves as the the secret key to open up the charging port (according to the copy on their site)

I would love more clarification on the "standby"/ready-to go nature of the gimmick.

Do you have to fuel it up/prep it basically just before the time you intend to use it? Or say, could I have it prepped/fueled and sitting on my mantle for a week...then when I know someone is coming over , turn it on (assuming it is still charged) and perform with it?

Or do I have to basically prep/fuel it at the time I'm going to use it?


Hi Pendleton!

Regarding the "standby"/ready-to go nature of the gimmick. The gimmick is basically a zippo lighter inside a candle cover.

Fuel wise, it last as long as a zippo with cover opened. Form the few tests we did, it can last up to 24 hours after fueled. We would not recommend leaving it this long but it will be reliable hours after fueled.

If it is covered, like stored in the box it came in, it can last for 2-3 days.

On the Battery side, after it is fully charged, it can last around 3-4 hours on "ON" mode. When in "OFF" mode, the battery will not drain.

I afraid it is more for performance and not for actual home decoration.

Best,
Kelvin

So maybe I missed it, but how does this compare in terms of features and performance with the ultra candle that came out last year? I have an ultra candle and I like it.


Hi Barry,

Sorry that since we did not own Ultra Candle, we cannot compare the two.

There is a wide range of candle on the market and most candles are different in 3 aspects.
1) The way they store the fuel
2) The way they ignite
3) The Look of the candle

And we needed a candle that can last hours, and looks like a real candle from close up. So we combine a zippo core with the best ignition we know and put those inside a real candle shell.

I am sorry that I don't have much to offer in terms of comparison.

Best,
Kelvin

I've purchased this and have the 'It's on it's way email' I should receive it within a few days, I took the plunge based upon hope and instinct.
Much to my relief however, Kelvin's responses to everyone's questions have been prompt & positive.
I have a few routines planned already, the authenticity and 'feel' of the candle are critical and since the mechanics are dropped into "A real candle shell" I'm feeling positive about my impulsive action. We cannot always say that eh !!
I'll post a review shortly.

Cheers all.

Received mine today. Shipping was prompt and tutorial clear. Have not had a chance to full test this but I am pleased and impressed so far. The look, weight and 'feel' of the candle is correct. Likewise will add to the reviews when I get some play time in.

I received mine today. It is very nice. The instructions explain the candle well. It works as it is supposed to work and looks very real. I like it a lot. It is small and compact which makes it great for intimate venues.

Received mine yesterday and works like a charm, and I am very satisfied. It fits perfectly in my parlour show but I can see good use for it in close up situations as well as it looks and feels like a real candle.

Hi all!

Thank you for all the kind comments!

This is the first electronic product we launch. We have tried everything we could to make sure the product are prefect when we ship them. But I know there must be something we missed. So if you have experienced any problem with your Spark, please don't hesitate to contact us. We will do our best to ensure you received the product promised.

Also, for guys who are still on the fence, here is another video showing how you can incorporate Sparks in your show:
https://youtu.be/lBeEe9b3MEE

We design this candle with story telling performance in mind. So we have made the following few things possible:
1) Long Burning time - this allows you to talk you time telling the story you want and won't need to worry about the candle burning out.
2) Multi-ignition - Once fueled, Spark can be lit and re-lit multiple time.

Those feature allows you to use Spark to enhance any routine with a circular ending.

We have been playing with the pattern:

"Many people ask me what magic feels like. To me, it feels like a dream. And to dream, you have to turn off the light"

Then you proceed to blow off the candle and start performing any routine with a circular ending, like reset, or gypsy thread. Starting the magic once the candle is off, and at the ending moment say sth like:

"The strange thing about dreaming is, everything feels so real in the dream, until the moment you wake up."

At the moment you say wake up, the candle lights up! and everything change back to beginning(For reset, all card changes back to aces; Or thread comes back together in Gypsy Thread").

This is also a great addition to Triumphs. It adds some theatrical element to a card trick.

Best,
Kelvin

Just ordered based on everyone's reviews and the videos. I've been looking for a good self-lighting candle for a while. Now...to work to make it self-extinguishing. Smile Maybe a small air cannon? Can't wait to get it and start playing with it!

Got mine and love it! It works flawlessly and is extremely reliable. Kelvin is quick to answer any questions. This will be perfect in a haunted seance routine. It cannot be examined...but the effect is great! What I really like about it is the long burn time...you don't have to blow it out right away and can continue with a routine.

Thank you David for the review video!

Here is another video by my friend Lewis Zhang, showing the Clock trick taught on the Spark facebook group.
The candle takes this classic trick to a new level.

I am using mine in the Odd Fellows initiation and added a device to blow it out as well. The effect is terrific! Kelvin and crew have done a great job with this candle.

Kindly note that there is a QR code on the box that links you to the Facebook page.

The QR code is right next to the tutorial link. Please don't hesitate to PM me if your spark doesn't come with the tutorial sticker for some reason.

Hello Guys!

We just developed this set of Spark for an immersive theater in China!

Its a tarot card reading setting and the candles around the rooms just spontaneously light up at the same time. The best part is, those are all controlled with ONLY ONE remote!
https://youtu.be/pz8y9uTsoGY

Imaging snapping your finger and the candles around you just come to life. This just feel like something straight out of a movie!


Below are 2 more demo showing those candles at work:

10 Candle with 1 remote!
https://youtu.be/V3MV4mBw2zs
10 Candle with 1 remote(Close up demo)
https://youtu.be/IUamvqtGd7U


We can link any number of Spark candles you want to one remote. Now you can custom order a Spark set form us without extra cost!

Question about the candle. In some pictures the wick looks like a normal candle wick. In other pictures it seems there is a large nozzle (big enough to draw my attention to it at least) that the wick comes out of... Wondering why it appears in some videos and not in others and how noticeable it is.
