How Long Do LED Candles Last?
LED candles have many benefits including safety, environmental and convenience. But did you know they also are the longest lasting candle you can buy?!
Most flamed candles you see in the shops will proudly state how many hours they burn for. This is dependent on the size of the candle, the type of wax used and the thickness of the wick.
On average, tealights will burn for 4–6 hours while pillar candles of 3, 4 and 6 inches in height will burn for 45, 60 and 75 hours, respectively.
This means if you light your flamed pillar candle every evening for 3 hours it will only last between 15 and 25 days.
That’s less than 1 month of enjoyment. Considering a good flamed candle can cost €20 that’s an average of €1 a light!
Now LED candles are a whole other story. Flameless candles use an LED bulb to create that flickering candlelight effect that we all enjoy on a cold Winter night. This bulb can last up to 100,000 hours!!
Going back to the idea of lighting your candle for 3 hours every evening, an LED candle can provide you with 91 years of enjoyment!!
A far cry from 25 days provided by a flamed candle!
Of course LED candles rely on battery power and even the best batteries will only last about 450 hours. So, after 5 months you will need to replace the batteries to continue enjoying your flameless candles.
