Time Candle

Inspired by the idea of a melting lit candle, this product indicates its remaining battery life by its slowly diminishing height. This product has an emotional connection as the user percieves it as an actual melting candle that needs to be replaced once completely used.

The idea of this product is to solve the inconvenience of not knowing wether the product has ample battery capacity left. With this, the user easily determines the remaining life of the battery in a more visually appealing way thus, it solves the main problem.
