Bring Warm, Flickering Light To Your RV With Battery-Powered LED Candles

This post was updated on March 15th, 2024

Traditional wax candles have gone by the wayside in recent years.

They used to be a common sight on windowsills and in bedrooms and bathrooms. But ever since their 90’s heyday, candle sales haven’t increased much.

Many candle lovers have turned to technology as a replacement for old-fashioned wax candles. LED candles provide a safer experience, and can be controlled remotely for varying colors and automatic turn on and shut off.

Battery Powered LED Candles Work Well In Small Spaces

LED candles look and feel like real candles. Often they’re made of real wax for a natural look, and have a realistic flickering flame. Without close inspection, most assume an LED candle is a real candle!

Most are powered by pre-installed batteries for long lasting use. While the wax often has a faint scent, the battery powered LED ‘flame’ doesn’t produce any fumes or present a fire hazard.

These LED candles are made of real wax and are powered by pre-installed lithium batteries.

LED Lytes

One popular option comes from LED Lytes. Their battery-operated votive set of 6 has a real ivory-colored wax shell with LEDs inside.

Remotely-Controlled LED Candles

Other LED candles can be controlled with a remote. The remote allows you to turn off or on all the candles at once, or separately. You can alter the flame to create a steady glow effect, or a flickering effect.

The included remote control lets you control these Kohree LED powered candles from a distance.

The included remote control offers 12 glowing colors and a four or eight hour timer mode.
