Tealights are great for ambiance in a home, at an event or on a patio. Flameless tealights, or battery operated tealights, make having tealights around even easier. Here are the top three reasons why flameless tealights are a great option for creating that candle-lit ambiance.
Where a typical tealight burns for 4-5 hours, a flameless tealight’s battery will last for 40 hours making it a more cost effective option for those who want to light ‘em and go for a while.
Let’s face it, traditional candles tend to me messy. With a battery operated candle the messy, waxy clean-up is completely avoided.
To put those parental minds at ease in the home or even at special events, flameless tealights are safe for the kids and pets. Plus, it’s not a fire hazard!
