Solar candles are virtually everlasting; they do not melt and do not need to be lit. They are self-lighting and self-extinguishing. No flame, no soot and 100% safe.
The light produced imitates the color and flicker of flame. A stick of a solar powered candle stays on all night and automatically extinguishes as the day breaks.
The best thing about them is that they get their energy from the sun and flicker like real candles
Solar Candles, an excellent alternative to real candles
Solar powered candles come in many shapes, colors, sizes, and designs that imitate real candles. Some are also available in lantern designs which are ideal as outdoor ornaments. However, regardless of the design, all solar candles share common features. They all have solar panels, light sensor switches, rechargeable batteries, and light emitting diodes or LEDs. More info on solar light batteries.
Some designs feature a manual switch that can override the light sensor switch. These lighting features make the solar candle light self-operating and self-sustaining, requiring very minimal maintenance. The light rays from the sun are converted into electrical current by the solar panel, which is then stored by the batteries.
These batteries power the light-emitting diodes.
Although originally intended as memorial light, solar candles or solar eternal lights as they are often called can be used in a wide variety of ways. They can be used for both outdoor and indoor purposes.
For outdoor purpose, solar powered candles can adorn the garden, walkway, or porch.
The yard of a home will become more distinct and attractive with the use of the right lighting designs. These solar lights can either be installed outdoor on a year-round or on seasonal basis.
For instance, different types of solar candles can be installed during Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
On the other hand, these solar powered lights can also be used as memorial gifts, indoor decoration for the windows, the fireplace, or even the dining table itself. They may also serve as emergency lights during blackouts.
Using solar candles is very simple and convenient
No special skills or tools are necessary to install and use them. Since they also have their own source of energy, they do not need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.
The operation of a solar candle light is fully automated and regulated by the photovoltaic switch that it does not require to be regularly handled. It can simply be installed and left on its own. As long as it is sufficiently exposed to the sun, it can operate on its own.
When solar candles are already securely installed, they simply require periodic cleaning. Maintenance is hardly necessary and they can last for many years.
