LED Candles: We Improved On Fire

A house full of flickering lights is a lovely thing. A house full of hard-working firemen isn't. Here's our suggestion: buy these LED candles and just plan a party to which you invite your local firemen instead! They'll be happy they don't have to work, and you'll be happy nothing is on fire. Win/win.

I love LED candles, they're awesome for a place with a very energetic cat!

Have you switched to LED yet?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Anyone know if the LED Carved set is the only one with a timer? This is a nice feature.

There are some LED candles out there that are on a timer. What I mean is, you turn them on once at whatever time you'd like, and they stay lit for some number of hours, and then automatically turn off for the rest of the day, and keep that cycle going until the battery dies.

Are any of these on an internal timer like that, or do you have to always manually turn them on and off? Thanks!

The 4 pc carved set, the 3pc set and the 4pc 3x5 set all have internal timers. The 14pc set and tea lights do not,

Can anyone tell me if in the carved set, the wick lights up vs just a glow from the pillar itself? You can kinda see that the wick on the 3-pack lights in the photo, but not in the carved set.

I have some that the pillar lights but the wick is just a little black stub... I like the kind where the wick lights.

Where's the crap?

The LED lights are sunk into the top of the candle and look like a burning wick...So these would be the kind where the "wick lights" vs the exposed black stub or non burning wick at the top.

Does anyone know if the batteries are replaceable on the tea lights?

Wondering if these flicker? I mean it's not a deal breaker, but they'd be a lot more realistic if they flicker like a real candle.

In the 14 piece gift sets, you'd think they could have included 2 more CR2032 batteries for the (2) Votive Real Wax LED Candles. After all they included 8 for the tea lights.

Also, are the candles in the 14 piece gift sets scented like the other 3 and 4 pack sets?

Are you sure? Only the carved set lists a timer in the features/specs.

Anyone know if these are scented? My grandma loves the idea of candles but is too afraid of a house fire.

I won't buy flameless candles that require batteries any longer - too much hassle to keep changing them out. I use the ones that have a recharging base with the battery built in. I keep them in the station and even on most times. Work great during a power outage too - they automatically switch on when the power goes off and become a portable lantern in essence.

Hi Fellow Wooters. This is Mark from Westinghouse. Let me know if you have any further questions on Flameless candles. I'm happy to help.

They aare, but the prices are so low, you would probably spend more on the batteries vs buying new ones. The replacement battery is a CR2032.

Hi Mark from Westinghouse, this is Marc from his house ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Can you settle once and for all for us which of these items do and don't have:
- Timers
- Scents (looks like vanilla for the ones that do, correct?

Thanks..

You're crazy. I bought 6 sets of these (two for gifts, lol). I have 16 in my home. I put rechargable batteries in them. The batteries cost me $10-11 on sale for a set of 8. So, for $22.00 + 50.00 (candles- they were cheaper then)= $70.00 (crash course in math, I am able to light my house up at night without light. My past 5 light bills have been considerably less. 2 more months and I will have recouped the cost, then the rest is savings. The 6 hr timer feature on the carved candles I have is a godsend. Try to turn out 16 of these suckers every night. What a workout, har har har.

Hi mark. I have at least one candle (carved) that the timer never worked. I bought it from woot last time they were on.

I don't agree with that comment. Replacements on amazon for 3v CR2032 are expensive. A good brand gets you roughly 1 per dollar. A generic (not guaranteed to work) gets you 3 per dollar. Cheap, but you could still just buy more tealights for the same price.

Using the batteries that came with them and in timer mode, mine (the carved ones) are still going after almost 3 months of daily use. I do like your idea, though, for when these batteries eventually die.

***GIFT TIP***: You can, of course, give the entire set. But for nice work gifts, I opened them up (already had 6 sets, and just added 3 more = 36 candles) and put one each in a cute but inexpensive gift bag. Add a bit of gift paper, small bow, and a tag.....and voila! Takes care of coworkers for Christmas at less than $5 each. People love to put them in the bathroom.

I, of course, kept several for myself.

LOVE THEM!!!!

May the Crap be with you all!!!

Your grandma will love them. I, too, fear fires and that I will run out of the house and forget to blow them out first. Also, the fumes from the wicks aggravate my asthma...but the scents themselves (of any scented candle) do not. The fragrance of these is very mild/light, but a pleasant vanilla. I wish it were a bit stronger, though. But they do have a nice glow and flicker. They look VERY realistic. Have fooled many people. The timer feature is very nice, also.

I think this would be a nice, appreciated gift for your grandma. She probably has more knick-knacks than she cares to dust and has anything else she actually needs. These are pretty AND useful.

And no....I do not work for Mark, LOL.

Mark, I love the carved candles....but would love them even more if they were not all the same height. Any chance of making them a variety like the 3-piece set, so as to create prettier groupings?

(P.S. I ordered 3 sets of those, too. I will probably gift those as complete sets....plus keep one for myself, naturally. )

I have a round, metal candle holder on my wall that holds about 16 tea light candles. Up to this point, it's just for looks because I fear fire (being so close to the wall) and the mess (wax in the little candle cups).

These tea lights would be perfect for the candle holder on the wall. Seems to be a common style of candle holder, at least amongst my friends, so I'd say many of you have one.

It's the price you pay for living in paradise while the rest of us suffer, LOL.

But seriously....Woot used to be unable to ship to Alaska or Hawaii at all, so you're at least in the loop on some of the items now.

In the meantime, don't you have volcanoes you can watch erupt? ;)

Unfortunately, Grandma hates vanilla scented things so I will have to keep looking! Thanks!

That's a shame. You might have to keep looking for a good while. I've never seen any in any other scent than vanilla (I'd love to find some with plain cinnamon or lavender scents, myself.) Maybe you'll get lucky and find some that are unscented, but I've never seen any like these that are not scented. Maybe Mark from Westinghouse can let you know if they make any and where to find them?
