For those worrying about the cost, the wireless lights can be purchased online at very reasonable prices, and you also don’t have to worry about you electricity bill increasing because of the lights because you can set a custom lighting schedule on an app you can download on your phone, giving you full control of when the lights turn on and off.
For the readers that celebrate Hanukkah, you don’t have to worry about buying candles for your menorah this year because you can buy an LED menorah that works just like the real thing.
