Double Battery Life & Save Money

Keep your candles "burning" longer. Use these tips for better battery longevity.

Choosing the right battery is an essential aspect of flameless candles. Our candles use C batteries for reliable and long-lasting power. While C batteries are less commonly found in your battery drawer, their durability made them the obvious choice for the Simply Collected Candle Collection! Understanding the battery options available will not only enhance the performance of your candle but also save you money in the long run.

Why we chose C batteries over A or AA:

Supreme Longevity:

C batteries are larger in size compared to their A and AA counterparts, translating to increased energy storage. With a longer lifespan, C batteries outlast the competition, ensuring your flameless candle glows consistently for extended periods. This longevity not only enhances convenience but also contributes to less waste / garbage.

Stability in Performance:

The larger size of C batteries provides a more stable and consistent power output. This stability is crucial for the optimal performance of flameless candles, ensuring a steady and reliable glow without fluctuations. Avoid dimming lights and uneven brightness – C batteries keep your candlelit ambiance flawless.


While it's a common misconception that C batteries are more expensive, their extended lifespan makes them a cost-effective choice. Consider it as an investment in sustained enjoyment, saving you the hassle and expense of frequent battery replacements. The longer intervals between battery changes not only save you money but also reduce environmental impact.

"We recognized that by opting for C batteries, our customers would spend less time and money dealing with battery replacements, allowing them more time to fully enjoy the beauty of our candles." - Founder Lou
