Everything and everyone looks better by candlelight. When you have pets, children or are concerned about open flames in your home, you may have replaced your tapers and pillars complete with wicks and melting wax, with a flameless alternative. When you decorate your family room, bedroom and bathroom with flame-free candles, you need to have the best batteries available.
High-quality flameless, battery-operated candles are not plastic formed into the familiar shape of candles. Flameless, battery-operated candles are made with real wax, and emit the light and scent you have come to expect from traditional candles. LED lights provide the candle-light glow from the flameless candle.
In addition to being decorative flameless candles have become popular because they are safer than traditional candles. Flameless luminaries may also be used around the house, in addition to flashlights, during a power outage, to light hallways and provide a safe source of light.
Best Batteries for Flameless, Battery-Operated Candles
Bigger is Better
For long-lasting flameless flickering, opt for flameless, battery-operated candles which run on the larger C and D size batteries rather than AA batteries. Flame-free pillars take either the Cs and Ds or the smaller batteries. With the larger batteries you can enjoy up to 350 hours in your flameless pillars.
Greener is Best: Duracell Rechargeables
For flameless candles which use AA batteries, make an upfront investment in a battery recharger. The most useful battery charging stations are adjustable to fit AAA, AA and C batteries. For the larger batteries, Cs and Ds, there are chargers for those too. Some smaller rechargeable battery stations fit both AA and AAA but not bigger batteries. Duracell rechargeable AAs and AAAs hold their charges even with numerous recharges.
