Battery Powered Candles - No more lights blowing out, but still get the flickering look of real candles.
Many electric candles now offer a simple way for your lights to come on in the evening. On the bottom of the candle is a switch - if you push it one way it will turn on - push it the other way and you will set the timer.
At the time you want your candle to come on, let's say 7:00 PM - move the switch to T.
The candle will stay on for around 5 hours and then automatically turn off. Leave it there and the candle will come automatically at 7:00 the next night. My candles use three AAA batteries.
I prefer the white candles, just because they give a little bit brighter glow than the cream colored ones. The batteries last for months even though the candles come on automatically every night.
7. Blow On and Off Flameless Candles
Real wax and a flickering light makes these battery operated candles appear real.
This set includes 6 white LED flameless candles. They are approximately 2 inches high by 1.5 inch in diameter. The candles are battery operated with a CR2032 3 volt battery which is included.Blow Out LED Flameless Candles - Real Wax, Battery Operated, Ivory Colored Set of 6
8. Use Candles with Remote ControlThese candles use 3 AAA batteries that are actually included in the set.
They last for to 120 hours with LED lights that flicker like flames. My friend Wendy likes the candles with the remote better than the timer. She doesn't need to reach high every time she uses them and she only wants to put them on for a party - so the remote is perfect for her.
Get your set of three battery operated candles made of real wax, with a vanilla scent and the convenience of a remote control at Amazon:
We love our real looking candles and use them in the evening out by the pool. Set them on a table or on the steps to the pool. We have used ours many times for several hours and have yet to replace the batteries.
Never put your candles in water or leave them out in the rain.
I own this set and what I like about them is that the whole candle glows giving more light.
Unlike battery operated candles made of real wax these are made of plastic - which is a good thing. Because the wax ones melt in the heat and hot sun when left outside.
I actually bought mine at a gift shop for twice the price shown at Amazon.
While they can't be left out in the pouring rain, a light rain or drizzle is not going to hurt them. I like the idea of being able to set the candles out a couple of hours before company arrives so that the table setting is all ready to go.
The switch on the bottom can go either left or right - one movement turns the candle on and while the side marked T for timer will turn on the candle and and then sets it to come on at that same time every evening.
It is truly amazing and with an amazing price. Although it is weather resistant, because it costs so much (I paid $40 for mine) I haven't kept mine outside to "test" it.
It comes in several heights - 5" and 7". It uses 2 D batteries and has a timer function. The box says the battery life is for 500 hours - haven't used mine for that many hours yet to verify.
You can get a remote that is sold separately - but so far I am happy with the timer option.
I love the 5 hour timer - set it to go on around 7:00 and it shuts off at midnight. If you want a real looking flame this is the candle to get.
These flameless candles are a great way to light up your outdoor pool party and to add ambience to evening entertaining. They always stay lit and any wind or breeze won't blow them out.
