Rechargeable Votives for All Your Candle Needs


What Are Rechargeable Votives?

Votive candles are a very popular type of candle also known as prayer candles. These types of candles are usually used within a special votive candle holder (typically made of glass) in order to enhance the appearance of the candle and for safety.
Votive candles are very popular in the hospitality industry as a way of creating ambiance with the visually appealing lighting that votive candles can provide. Places such as restaurants, hotels, spas, salons and resorts often rely heavily on candle lighting to create an inviting environment for patrons without taking up a significant amount of space.
Burning a traditional, wicked votive candle in a suitable holder is an important safety practice. Most votive candles are created from softer waxes that liquefy quickly. This can create substantial safety concerns when the wax is not properly contained by a holder.
Rechargeable votives are a type of flameless candle that uses a LED bulb and is battery operated. Rechargeable votives are designed to look like traditional wicked votive candles while eliminating safety concerns and other inconveniences.

The Benefits of Rechargeable Votive Candles

A major benefit of rechargeable votives is the minimization of replacement costs. Traditional wicked votive candles are designed to burn quickly and, as a result, will need to be replaced. The size of the candle will determine how long it will burn and when it will need to be replaced, but it is common for these candles to only last between 5-10 hours. Rechargeable votives simply need to have the batteries recharged after they have been depleted. A short charge can provide 15 hours of candlelight, making rechargeable candles very cost-effective, especially in high usage applications where the candles will be used for many hours each day and recharged up to 1,000 times.
Rechargeable votives eliminate concerns over the presence of an open flame and hot wax. Flameless votives can be used in place of traditional wicked candles for any application, as well as applications where safety concerns or wind and wax-melting heat would limit the use of traditional candles. The absence of hot wax also eliminates the need for votive candle holders, but they can still be used for aesthetic purposes.

Do Rechargeable Votives Look Real?

People may be hesitant to look at flameless candles due to the concern that they will not look real. Newer flameless candle technologies have greatly enhanced the realism of these candles to the point where the best flameless candles are nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.
The top flameless votive candles will include the use of realistic wick technology to make the candles look real when they are in use as well as when they are off; when a customer looks down on the candle, all they will see is little burnt wick, just like a real candle. The bulbs can also employ a flickering pattern that realistically mimics the look of a flickering flame through candleholders.
