The Cork Candle Hat is a craftable HatItem exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. It is found in the Light Tab, requires 4 Cork and 2 Iron Ore to craft, and a Science Machine to prototype. It serves as a light source and lasts just as long as a Torch (2 minutes), providing a slightly smaller radius of light.
The greatest differences from the Torch, and what justifies the use of better ingredients, is that it can be refueled with Cork for 37.5% (45s) and be worn on the head. This allows for infinite use and frees the handslot for other Tools or Weapons.
Unlike the Torch, the durability drainage is not affected by Rain, however it still provides 20% wetness resistance when equipped.
