What Kind Of Battery Operated Candles Are Available

As of today there are at least 28 different styles of battery operated candles on the market. Everything from wall sconces, real-look melting, votives and tea lights, to color changing and blow on-off candles.

Today we are going to address just 4 of these styles. Others will be covered at a later date.

Lets start with the most common, tea lights. Most people have tea light candles in their homes today. They are the little round ones that are wider than they are tall and usually about 2" wide and 1" tall and are generally used in a votive sort of candle holder either on your coffee table or the dinning room table. Also known as the little finger burners by most husbands. That's the first reason to change from traditional to battery candles. Help save our fingertips. Most tea lights will burn for about 3 to 5 hours until they will need to be replace. This is the second reason to make the switch. Battery candles will last up to 12 hours, and will still light up the next day. Just not as bright. We have at least 15 battery tea lights around the house and have been using them on and off for 2 months. We don't leave them on continuously but rather just when we want the mood right or when company is coming over. The third reason is that these little candles work almost like a flash light (not your mag light). But when it's dark outside turning these on and placing in your path is an excellent way for your guest to see where they are going.

How about Real look melting candles. These are the closest to the real thing as you can get. From afar they look like the real deal, so no one will be the wiser, and you still get that comfort feeling as well as the ambiance that real candles will create. Made from beeswax these candles can be scented or un-scented and come in a variety of sizes. And can either be purchased with a timer or without to give you more ease of use.

Now, for what they call Luxurious Round Pillars. These candles actually come with blackened tips for that oh so real look that no one could tell the difference until they pick them up. As with most battery operated candles these have a variety of choices from size to scent, and timer to a simple on-off button.

Blow on- off function is a new idea that is coming of age. A little side bar. My grandaughter is infatuated with grandma's candles. And, for her first 2 years I had her completely convinced that if you blow on them they would turn on or off. Now of course I was doing the on-off, and she could not figure out how it worked for me, and not for her. Then, her bubble was burst one day when I could not get them to work, and she seen me turn it over to find the button. That blew my whole scam. And now she knows how to turn them on-off her self. Blow on-off is exactly that. Blow to turn it on, and blow again to turn it off.

I can't wait to get these and see if she can figure this one out. In my next article I will let you know how she does. Look for it in the coming days.
