    you can set them up w/ the on off switch. I put mine together2 days before our wedding w/ out the on off switch and gave them to our restaurant manager. Batteries don't just die, these are the kind you use in like a watch or the little remote to unluck your car... they last a while, and the LED's should last like 2 weeks so they shouldn't just die.

        I bought all of the supplies to make these lights because the ones I found online and at the store had batteries that just lasted 5-8 hours. So we put one light together to test it and it's been lit now for over a week!

        These are such a great idea. And thank you to everyone that posted on this thread. I felt like this would be alot of work and maybe not worth it, but it's really easy and now I have no worries about my lights staying lit all night.

          Update: My light is still lit! It's been like 3 weeks.

          I love this idea. And it's really not alot of work to put them together.

                    I was considering getting those fake candles to put into some lanterns I have, but this would probably be way cheaper. It really lasted 3 weeks? That's amazing!

                      Yes, it did! It's crazy because I expected them to last a week, tops. I made them exactly the way the directions said to. I am really happy with them because we can light them and drop them off at the wedding site and not worry about them for the rest of our trip, knowing they'll still be lit for our entire wedding!
