Graypants has debuted Wick, a chic portable fixture leveraging the warmth and collective joy of candlelight in an energy-efficient and safe & modern form. Wick features a smooth touch sensor that controls the warmth of the 1W LED, toggling three lighting levels, and offering a pulse mode that mirrors the soft flicker of a candle.
The Wick is constructed with an aluminum body, plated in satin brass, with an ergonomic carrying ring referencing classic candleholders. It has a USB-C rechargeable battery within, with a battery life of over a hundred hours on the lowest setting, and 12 hours at its brightest.
Liberating beautiful lighting from a cord or plug, Wick imagines good design to come with us everywhere-from the bedside table to the garden, kitchen, campsite, and so on-as a portable, mood-setting companion. Combining the romance of a candle with the utility of a flashlight, Wick's three lighting levels enable it to be used both as a bright reading light and as a means to create an intimate atmosphere. With a maximum brightness over twice as strong as a traditional candle, but without the risk of fire, Wick can be used both inside and outdoors, by children and adults alike.
