Self-destruction candles

Destructo candles

I love the sound of these candles, shame there about 20 pounds a pop. And I don't understand what happens when you burn it down to nothing one end. Is the battery protected or have to be removed first?

With The Design Can’s clever new Self-Destructo Candle, you can literally burn your candle at both ends. The Self-Destructo is a traditional paraffin pillar candle with an embedded LED light. If you replace the battery occasionally, the LED “candle” will last forever. However, if you ever get tired of it – you don’t need to worry about sending yet another gadget
to landfill. Instead, just flip the candle over, cut the wick, light it, and watch it slowly melt away.
