Taper flameless candles need two AAA batteries and will last around 250 hours each. With batteries, as with many other products, you get what you pay for. Duracell batteries will last longer than store-brand or off-brand batteries.

When you're not using your flameless candles, it's important to store them properly so they'll be in good condition when you are ready to use them again.
Keep them out of direct sunlight and away from high temperatures, as this can cause the wax to melt. If the wax does start to soften, you can put the flameless candle in the refrigerator for a short time to harden it up again.

They also don't require any special care or storage, making them easy to use and enjoy. Give flameless candles a try the next time you need a little extra light or ambiance in your home.

However there are some things to keep in mind while caring for your flameless candles. Read along to see tips on how to care for your flameless candles, and even how to store your flameless candles.
Tips for flameless candles care
Wax candles are delicate and heat-sensitive, so it's important to be mindful of the temperature when displaying them. Never keep a wax flameless candle in temperatures over 90 degrees F for an extended period of time or direct sunlight - regardless of how hot it may be outside! Wax can soften quickly without warning.
For flameless candles that are scented, it's important to ensure that your flameless fragrances retain their scent. Set and store them in sealed plastic baggies (without mixing scents) or keep them in their original packaging until you're ready to use them. For optimal organization, place the fragrances near where they'll be used - if they are meant for your bathroom, then keep them in the bathroom!
While storing votive flameless candles and tea lights, votive flameless candles aren’t very sensitive, although they can melt together if you are not careful. Try stacking them in a box that has dividers. Small ornament boxes or egg cartons also work well for storing votives, and tea lights.
Just like a real candle, in order to maintain the integrity of your flameless candles, it’s essential to store them in a cool and dry place. Room temperature or lower is best as higher temperatures could cause some fragranced flameless candles to soften, warp, even melt away completely. Some types are more vulnerable than others so be sure you take extra precautions if necessary!
