Candles are a big part of our days. We see them all around us, in restaurants, in our homes, at parties and even outdoors. And there are so many different kinds to choose from- Votive Candles, Tea Light Candles, Taper candles etc.
However one must be extremely careful when using any of these candles. They pose as fire hazards and if not used wisely can end up burning the place down.
So what do you do when you want to create the ambiance of a candle lit place, without the fire hazards that come with it? How do you use candles without worrying that your cat or your toddler may knock it down? One of the first rules when using candles is to extinguish the flame before you leave the house or go to sleep.
However you can avoid all these dangers by using LED candles.
LED candles are accent lamps that are designed to look like real burning candles, but do not have the potential dangers of candles. The “wick” of an LED candle is typically recessed inside the candle body, as if the candle has partially burned. The top portion glows as if it were a wax candle. LED candles even flicker to simulate a real flame.
LED candles are great for outdoor parties, where the breeze could extinguish a real candle. They are resistant to both wind and rain and hence can be used for barbeque parties. LED candles are also perfect for the children, providing soft glow for the little ones, or nice accent lamps for teens. Kids can safely use LED candles in their tents at camps or even in their own rooms. These candles can also be used as night lamps.
Since LED candles come in various colors, these can be used to decorate the room and match the color scheme of the room. Green, red, yellow, and blue, as well as rainbow, candles are available. The glow from these candles adds a whole new dimension to your room. These candles look realistic because of the flickering light they come with.
LED candles are very realistic but they do not create the problems that wax candles do. Since they do not drip wax, they are non-messy and are very safe to use, even by little children. They can safely be used in church services or at programs at schools. The flickering, real-like light offers a real option to the candle that will not be so drastically different from a real flame candle with its dripping wax and flickering wick.
Since LED candles do not get hot or have dangerous flames, they can be used both indoors and outdoors.
LED candles also make nice gifts. They can be gifted as a set or as a single piece. Since most of the LED candles are rechargeable, they have a very low cost of maintenance. The battery life is very long and a candle with 2C batteries can last up to 350 hours. Some of the candles also come with a timer option.
