Flameless Candles

 

Some of you may have heard about flameless candles. No? How about the term, “Battery operated candles”? Getting there right? There’s a strong possibility that you’ve seen these candles, the ones with artificial paper flames flaring in the air, with a constant flow of light being illuminated from somewhere within them. Well folks, these candles belong to a category that is known as “Flameless”, or “Battery Operated Candles”.

There are many reasons as to why people use flameless candles. Sometimes, for some individuals, it’s the price factor that matters (flameless candles are cheaper as compared to conventional candle sticks). For other lot of people, the object of triggering allergic reaction to paraffin or scent may be strongly linked to the buying factor of these candles. Hence, when one’s out there in the market, shopping for battery operated candles; we can say that the reasons are always oscillating between the same old motives ‘n agendas.

Plus the fact that battery powered candles are loaded with an endless amount of benefits, one cannot ignore their importance. Want to know what those advantages could be? Read on…

Side Note: *Flameless candles are also known as LED Candles. So don’t be alarmed when you see or hear someone referring to these glowy items by that term.

The usual wick and wax combo can be dangerous. For instance if you’re celebrating a birthday event, what if your kid or someone else’s kid tips over a candle without anyone noticing it. Next thing you know, there’ll be firemen rushing in, trying to deal with the flaming catastrophe which someone at the birthday bash started.

o        Flameless candles are quite safe. They can’t start a fire, and upon direct contact, you’ll notice that the LEDs are not at all.

 

LED Candles are way more convenient than the usual stuff. These candles are generally available in various editions, such as; rechargeable candles, timer operated flameless candles, normal battery powered candles that need replacement, and vice versa. In other words, you could sum these candles up in one word: “CONVENIENCE”.

 

Think about all the variety that’s available to you. Battery powered candles are made on a large scale, in order to meet everyone’s demands. Some people like to see a little bit of shimmery flame effect, so they place orders for candles that have those waving papers in them. There’re also folks who have a knack for high intensity LEDs, because such candles can be used at Thanksgiving or Christmas etc.

 

If you’re thinking that flameless candles are artificial looking, you couldn’t be wrong anymore. Probably, there’s an element of truth in your statement but the modern version of battery operated candles is so realistic that it’s pretty hard to notice the difference. You wouldn’t believe it but there’re some models that are equipped with the “dripping wax” effect.

On a bigger level, flameless candles are also used on special occasions and festivals. You know how things tend to get a little loose during Christmas gatherings and late night chit chats, followed by that outdoor dinner. During such incidents, the entire atmosphere is ideally lit up through battery powered candles because no one likes the idea of getting up after every few hours to replace conventional candles.

People just turn on the switch and then let themselves lose in the flow of that special event. Last but not the least, “Cherokee Chronicles Times” ran a report on candles, a few years ago. Since candle making has acquired the shape of a high rising building, the newspaper management team thought that it’d be nice to run a couple of comparison and analysis tests.

A massive survey was carried out and it was discovered that during 2003 – 2007, over 166 deaths and 1289 injuries were incurred due to the use of ordinary candles. All those cases were linked to blazing fires, burned bodies, desecrated buildings ‘n apartments, ruined furniture and injuries of different intensity.

Do yourself a favor next time: instead of wasting your money on regular candles, buy flameless candles. It is a one-time expense because unlike an ordinary candle, the electric powered candle will never run out of “wax” or “wick”. You don’t have to worry about the smell at all.

By the way, if you’re still not completely convinced, try researching the flameless candle topic. Soon enough, you’re bound to find out that these candles also come with scented lights! Wow, isn’t it fabulous? What more could you ask for?
