Pacific Accents Set of 2 Flameless 9" Taper Candles
Stopped working after one year
Stopped working after one year. Even though it doesn't cost much it should last longer for something that just sits there with a timer turning it on everyday. I always used fresh high quality batteries.
I ordered two sets of these--one set was defective and damaged in shipment (one didn't work at all). Both sets the wax came off immediately.
looks like real
I recently had to replace my taper candles, I had a pair in the past and one of the tapers broke. I like these candles, they look real, come on automatic, and in the winter, it's nice to come home to warm light.
That's why I ordered them again.
Finally a Flameless Taper
Technology is not quite there but for those of us who refuse to use real candles, it's an improvement over those plastic tapers in bulky holders- even those with very realistic flames. These are wax coated and have very nice adjustable silicone/rubber fittings that will secure them in various size candle holders. The flame is so, so, but overall I will enjoy these until the next generation.
So much nicer than I expected
I picked up some glitter ones from Home Reflections on lunchtime special. These are awesome for everyday use. Ordered two sets in ivory to use in Waterford candlesticks. Love the way they look - though there is no flame - and no drip on my precious candlesticks.
Would like to see these in more colors than ivory and white.
These don't compare to luminara candles with what looks like a true flame:(. If only they would come out with a taper I could use in my favorite candle holders.
Halloween candles at best
The glow is orange and they look like Halloween décor. So that's what I used them for. I don't think these look real and would not use them at a dinner table setting.
Not sure how other customers are using them, but nothing like other flameless candles.
I love these candles, they work with other flameless and real candles I have in my home. I can't see the batteries in my cream colored ones. Maybe it depends on the placement. I also purchased the glitter ones and they are to die for. Perfect for my holiday decorating on my mantel with many different sizes and shapes of candles, real and flameless. Highly recomment!
Simply the Best!
I've been using these for over a year now. Best. Candles. Ever. They are perfect for any application I choose. The candle fittings that are included provide a custom fit. I'm just so happy with these candles!!
I bought these in the ivory color. I would not burn tapers, just because of the fire hazard. These give me the same pleasure and no worries. I agree they dont look exactly like the real thing but they look great.
Don't Come Close to Looking Real
If you expect these to realistically imitate real taper candles, you'll be disappointed. You can see the outline of the batteries and the lighting mechanism right through the wax. I could live with the hidden "flame" and accept the buried glow of the LED light, but being able to see the batteries and inner mechanism of the candles through the plastic/wax was just too unrealistic for me. I returned them.
Fantastic candle concept!
Whom ever thought of this type of flameless candles deserves a huge bonus! I first bought two sets (I needed 3 candles) for the top of my new dresser, which is marble, with a big ornate mirror. I had bought three mercury designed candle holders all different heights. At night, against the mirror, it reflects to look like 6 candles! Then, my dining room hutch has a lot of glass in front. It is also deep, which I like because of all my dishes and crystal, but at night, unless I would turn on the regular bulb, I cannot see inside. So, I put these (2) in my pewter candlestick holders in the hutch. Granted, it is not as light as a regular bulb, but lights it up enough to see inside. Also, I have a big breakfront in the living room, all glass except wood at corners and top. I put these-2- beside an ornate sterling silver platter. They glow off the sterling at night. If I don't put on the brakes, I could buy some for every room in the house! LOVE THEM!
