As an alternative to candles in your home
The most common types of candles are tealights, tapered lights, and candles, all of which are available in LED versions. The traditional tealights can be used in small tealight holders on tables or windowsills. They are also the perfect fit for indoor lanterns, as they don’t cause the lanterns to overheat.
If you have a larger lantern or other decorative element, you can use the LED candles. These are an amazing alternative for creative decorations or wreaths, as you don’t run the risk of the candles getting too low and setting flammable materials on fire. Likewise, you avoid candlewax running down the sides and ruining tablecloths, windowsills, etc.
A new addition to the world of LED candles is tapered lights, which look like normal candles when seen from a distance. They have the same size as the traditional tapered light and fit perfectly in your favourite candelabra where the charming lifelike flame truly comes into its own.
LED candles with remote controls and timers
More and more LED lights are fitted with a timer function and/or remote control. It isn’t an absolute necessity, but it has its advantages. With a remote control, you can turn your lights on and off without removing them from the candelabra or lantern. With a timer, you can set the lights to turn off automatically—often after 4, 6, 8, or 10 hours, which is the burning time of many traditional candles. You don’t need to worry about forgetting to turn off your candles and using up unnecessary battery life.
