Liown Launches Newest Candle LED Technology: Push Flame™ Flameless Candle – Beautiful, Easy and Affordable
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Liown Electronics Co. Ltd, one of the world’s largest suppliers of light-emitting diode (LED) flameless candles and lighting, announced today an exclusive launch with RAZ IMPORTS of its newest LED Push Flame™ candles.
The new Push Flame™ candle represents Liown’s latest innovation in flameless candle technology. With the Push Flame™ candle, simply push the flame to activate the candle and blow on the flame to turn the candle off. Push Flame™ also features a five-hour daily timer.
“We are excited to launch this new candle,” said Cynde Stewart of RAZ Imports. “The new Push Flame™ is a great addition to our current line of candles. This candle has the feel of a traditional burning candle and now has the really unique blow-out feature. It will cost 30% less than our Moving Flame™ candles.”
For nearly two decades, Liown has been committed to developing technology for the lighting and LED candle industries (among others). “Our 450 patents and patents pending are a testament to our focus on product innovation,” said Johnny Yang, CEO of Liown. “We were able to create our latest Push Flame™ technology by using four uniquely programmed diodes that create patterns to simulate the flicker of a real candle through the use of shadows and light,” continued Yang. “With no moving parts, we are pleased to be able to offer this beautiful candle at a very competitive price.”
All Liown’s products are manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities, owned and operated by Liown, and certified by retailers around the world. Components are assembled and tested by Liown employees to ensure the highest quality standards.
The Push Flame™ candles will be debuted at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, January 10 – 17, 2017. RAZ Imports can be contacted at (800) 443-3540 to order Push Flame™ candles or stop by their showroom at Building 1 #18-C-15.
Liown Receives Favorable Preliminary Findings Against Luminara in Patent Review
Minneapolis, MN – June 20, 2016. PRNewswire -Liown Electronics Co. Ltd, one of the world’s largest suppliers of light-emitting diode (LED) flameless candles and lighting, today announced that the United States Patent Office’s Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) has issued preliminary findings that several of Luminara’s patents relating to flameless candle technologies are likely invalid.
“From the start of our patent disputes with Luminara, we have been committed to revealing the truth about our technologies and our role as the leading innovator in the flameless candle industry,” said Johnny Yang, Liown CEO. “These rulings from the PTAB are very promising and we look forward to resolving, once and for all, our disputes with Luminara.”
The PTAB found that 30 patent claims Luminara has asserted against Liown in litigation are likely invalid, including all of the asserted claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,696,166. The PTAB found the asserted claims of the ‘166 likely invalid for not just one reason, but for multiple reasons. The so-called ‘166 patent was the basis of a preliminary injunction initially obtained by Luminara in 2015.
The PTABs decisions on the IPRs come on the heels of Luminara’s injunction against Liown being vacated in December 2015 by an appeals court less than 24 hours after it conducted oral argument. In overturning the injunction, the appeals court, like the PTAB, found a “substantial question of validity” with the ‘166 patent.
The initial determinations are telling; publicly-available PTAB statistics show that claims receiving such initial invalidity determinations are almost always terminated.
Luminara’s Request to Challenge Liown’s Flameless Candle Patents Denied by U.S. Patent Appeals BoardMINNEAPOLIS, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Liown Electronics Co. Ltd., one of the world’s largest suppliers of light-emitting diode (LED) flameless candles and lighting, today announced that the United States Patent Office’s Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) has refused Luminara’s request to review Liown’s U.S. Patent No. 8,926,137. “From the start of our patent disputes with Luminara, we have steadfastly maintained that Liown is the original innovator in the flameless candle industry,” said Johnny Yang, Liown CEO. “This ruling from the PTAB helps confirm that our IP is as strong as we have always maintained.” Luminara had requested that the PTAB institute a so-called inter partes review (IPR) of Liown’s ‘137 patent. To institute such a review, the PTAB would have needed to find that Liown’s ‘137 patent was likely invalid. And, by refusing to institute, the PTAB showed its faith in the validity of ‘137 patent. In Luminara’s petition, it argued that the patents Luminara licenses from Disney invalidated Liown’s ‘137 patent. But the PTAB squarely rejected those arguments. The PTAB’s decision is available online at https://ptab.uspto.gov/#/login. About Liown Since 1999, Liown Electronics Co. Ltd. has been the leader in LED lighting technologies.
