Battery Candles


 candles powered by batteries and I do NOT LIKE THEM AT ALL.... 
they will not burn me or set the house on fire,
but they will fill the landfill with batteries and plastic.. I will not buy them again.
I love the real candles, the holders are as old as I am and the wax disapears and
I am All About The Flickering Flames.

Good morning, Sandra! I agree I like the real candles too. I like seeing the flickering flames. Pretty images.

Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

I like real candles - but I use these because they are safer - and they are pretty in some things! lol

I agree..I like real candles better, but these do give off a nice glow :-).

Connie Arnold said...

I agree. These photos are lovely though!

i don't really use either, but when i do a candle, it is a real one.

Dear Fun With Fire,
Your pictures are still good.

I see a certain value in the flameless candles,but I do agree,there is nothing better than that flickering flame of a real candle.

I'm not fond of the battery ones either. I have stopped burning candles though as I'm afraid the cats will knock one off when I am not looking. I really love flickering flames in candles/fireplaces.

Well, we pyromaniacs do like to watch the flames dance, don't we? lol

I use a few of them but the ones I have flicker. Also I am all about recycling them. Unfortunately most people don't recycle which saddens me. Cans, plastic bottles, etc. etc. etc. Actually where my dad lives in Florida they do not recycle at all. I take his things over to my niece who does recycle.

I so agree with you...there is just something about a real flame that cannot be got by battery or electric.

Madi and Mom said...

There are sure lots of them every where and even some are scented...your photos are very pretty real or not.
Thank you for your comments on my header.
Hugs madi and mom

The battery operated ones are safer especially with kids around but there is no replacing a real candle. Maybe instead of making a safer candle they should come up with better behaved children who know how to keep their hands off of things they shouldn't touch....lol

From what I know of your fascination with real fire, I could have guessed that :) I have a couple of battery candles (and of course my electric ones in the windows). I do like them from safety aspect, because I can leave them burning without worry while I go to and fro etc. Or if I'm tired and might fall asleep on the sofa... I light real candles at well but then I have to be more careful (and keep awake!)

Well, your photos are great and they look very cool, but you're right, they don't beat a flickering flame.

Good choice! Sometime the old fashioned is way better than the new and "improved." :)

I've never used the battery candles, but have seen projects where they would be nice. You make a good point about them not being reusable, so I'll leave them at the store. I prefer a real flicker, too.
