My Sompex LED candle turns itself off after a short time?

 If your Sompex LED candle turns off after a few minutes operation automatically, try the following please. Often this effect is caused when the candle has not been switched to "OFF" when changing the battery. Remove the batteries again, turn the candle to "OFF" and wait a few minutes. Insert the batteries again and taking care that the switch is still set to "OFF". Afterwards the candle should be lit permanently again. Apart from the switch position also batteries with a too low voltage power lead to switch off after a short time. Test with a battery tester, if your battery takes at least 1.5V power, should that not be the case, replace the batteries against brand new batteries.
