    Default Looking for Flameless Tiki Torch

    I found this


    at TikiZone.com, but they have been sold out for the longest time. Does anyone know where I can find this. I've looked everywhere on the internet.

    This flameless and is battery operated. It has those fake flames that move with a fan. For $5.99, I thought it would be a great way to illuminate my haunted castle corridors.

    thanks!

    I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.

    I thought about taking a couple that I have around and making them flameless....All you'd have to do is get a couple of REAL tiki torches which should be out in all the stores now...Take the wick out and slide a cord with socket down through the wick hole....The small night light type socket with cord coming out of the bottom, NOT side should fit in snuggly...I'd try to get a black socket and cord if possible....I'd probably paint the cord black if need be or better yet slide it down through the bamboo if possible....Attach a plug on the end,buy some of those flicker bulbs and you've got a flameless tiki...If you want the kind like in your picture then you've got alot more work ahead of you....Good Luck!....ZR

    Here is a link to the instruction that I am using. You can make it smaller by using only one fan and exchanging the lights for colored super-bright LEDs.
