Smart Candles, create the effect without a flame

Smart Candles colour changing, flame free battery operated at TAOS Gifts
Partylite Colour changing Tealight

If you love the effect of candle light but cannot risk a naked flame you might want to consider battery-powered candles.

With a flickering effect that is very much like a candle flame you can enjoy the ambience and soft lighting of a candle without the danger of a naked flame.

This makes them ideal for situations where you cannot keep an eye on the candle, perfect for parties, especially if there are young children or energetic pets around.

As well as the safety aspect they also look fantastic!

Gadget lovers will love the Colour Changing Partylites,  they look like tealight candles in a frosted glass container, but they are actually little lights with a switch on the base, just turn them on then  sit back and watch as the coloured LED change colour, illuminating the holder with pretty colours of the rainbow.

They come supplied with a lithium battery that will give up to 40 hours use.

Traditional Candles with a difference
If you are looking for a safe alternative to the traditional candle the our small wax pillar candles are ideal, also battery operated and supplied with batteries giving up to 40 hours light.

Just like a real candle, the body is made of wax and the light flickers just like a real candle flame.

These Small Pillar Candles are available in Red or White, sold in twin packs, each small pillar candle is approximately 6.3cm tall with a diameter of 4.9cm.

For an even more realistic effect we have  Real Wax Melted Look Pillar Candles, with one side sloping down, your guests will have to look twice as the candle flickers gently through the melted wax side.

The large Pillar Candles are supplied with AA Batteries which will give up to a massive 250 hours “burn time”!

You can have the best of both worlds with the fun, practical and stylish Colour Changing Large Wax Melted Effect Pillar Candle.

This really is a smart candle, not only does it look amazingly real, you can change from a classic  natural, neutral candle, or switch it to a colour changing candle that will softly glow with a gentle change of colour.

You can also choose which colour to set the candle by pressing a button, it will continue to light the room with the colour of your choice.

Simply release the button to continue the sequence of colour change.

Beautiful, practical, safe, our battery operated candles suit any decor, are perfect for parties and great gifts for anyone whether they are the latest gadget freaks, new homeowners, parents, pet lovers or candle collectors, all the beauty and style with no fuss.
