This is one of my favorite items I learned about at BlogHer ‘12. While I really love candles, I have to be really careful because my cats, well just one of them (Lottie), has caught her tail on fire – twice!  For that reason if I want the ambiance of candles I really like the idea of the newer flameless candles. However, they all are not created equally.

See this photo? Both are flameless style candles – they run on batteries. Which one looks the most realistic though? The one on the right does by far! It is one of the new Energizer Flameless Wax Candles. Not only does the shape make it look better, but the glow is better and flickers more like a real candle. Energizer has a great line-up of different sizes, colors, and scents of the Flameless Wax Candles.

Another thing I love about these is that they have the on/off switch, but also a timer switch. If you put it on timer you can then select 4, 6, or 8 hours for it to stay on. This is fabulous to be able to turn them on in the evening and not have to worry about turning them off before bed.

As I said, the candles use batteries instead of a real flame. The new Energizer Max batteries will hold power for up to 10 years when not in use. I love this! I have been an Energizer fan forever, so I am always excited when they have products that will last longer because frankly, batteries can be kind of expensive. I think the Energizer Bunny must have gotten a new contract and insisted on even longer hold time for his power LOL!
