I will NOT be buying these candles again - Sorry
Comments about Spirit Halloween Faux Ivory Candles 3 Pack:
I purchased about 10 of these candles back in 2008 and 2009. I am very happy with them..The L.E.D's on these new candles are recessed to far back. I am not happy with them at all. The older candles with the LED closer to the top are more realistic looking. Sorry to say I wont be buying these candles again. Also, you should look into making a "five arm" candelabra for these candles that doesn't have the skulls on them. Some of us like to keep them around all year long, and the skulls are kind of hokey.

A love/hate thing
These look great but they are poor quality. I bought 12 (some as replacements for others that do not work after one season) and three did not work at first. I had my husband take them apart and now they work, but not with any degree of confidence. The price is too high for the quality but y'know.... they look so good!
Cheaper version of last year's candles.
Bummed out that these are not the same ones Spirit sold last year. These have a hard line where you can see where the light stops. Last year, they were a bit shorter and much more realistic looking. These are a cheap new version that flat out sucks. :0(

On-line ONLY candle purchase

About Me Budget Shopper
They are perfect replacements for Spirit's 3 or 5 arm candelabra which are sold on-line.Sadly you can't get the candles over the counter, only from the Spirit website.I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Spirit Halloween make these candles in a more natural warm white color instead of the artificial yellow.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT COUSTOMER SERVICE !
By Grandpa Dan
from St. Louis, Mo.
I perchased a package of three from Spirit and when they arrived one candle was defective. I called Spirit, talked a very nice young man who apologized for the problem and VERY PROPLEY sent out another three pack. They worked great. To me, customer service is very important and Spirit has the best. Buy with confidence.

Flickering, spooky goodness
from San Diego, CA
About Me Midrange Shopper
These are great faux candles. They flicker, have long battery life and really create an atmosphere. They don't just have to be for creepy Halloween stuff....they also work for Christmas! Be careful with the screw ends though. They can strip over time. Still...great product.

Wonderful Halloween Company
About Me Adventurous
I had ordered the candelabra and included candles for Halloween and loved it, but a few of the candles had small issues. Unbeknownst to me, Spirit read my review and promptly put 6 new candles in the mail! Therefore I wholeheartedly recommend any and all products purchased by them, as they obviously stand behind everything they sell. I buy from them every year and will continue to do so. Spirit is the best Halloween store ever!!
I'll never buy on line again
By Disappointed Mike
from Simi Valley, CA
I love these candles, I have 6 candelabras, I needed some replacements, but because they way they were packed, one was shattered beyond repair. I kept instead of returning the package because by the time i received them you were out of stock, and there were just enough intact.I'm VERY disappointed, they are fragile and there was no packing between the packs and the bottom of the box, only on the top.Shame on you.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
nice candle to go well in different holders the best thing is they are safe no mess and look pretty real
Faux Candles are Fab

About Me Adventurous, Classic, Conservative
I received a set of these a couple of years ago for my birthday--loved them immediately. Decided to order more since I can use them year round. Although they don't have a timer function the size, quality of flame flicker and look of the candles makes them superior to many other faux candlesticks I've seen. I would highly recommend these for tabletop or over a fireplace mantle.

candles last indefinitely if hard wired
By Haunt Meister
from Hudson Valley Region
About Me Seasoned Home Haunter
Yes, as others have noted, the battery compartment cap on these candles is made of thin plastic and the threads on it are not going to stand up well to repeated opening and closing. I don't have to worry about that, because I hard-wired my candles. How? I used a wooden dowel the width and length of two AAA batteries. First, I drilled a small hole into the top and bottom end of the dowel. Then drove a small screw into each hole, leaving about 2/16 of an inch of it showing. Then drilled two small holes into the bottom side of the candle (right above the threads for the cap) and then ran a single wire though each hole (one red, one black). One wire was attached to each screw on the dowel, by stripping off about 3/4 of an inch of the insulation and then tightly wrapping the bare wire around the bottom of the head of the screw. I then slid the dowel into the battery compartment (with the red wire end facing in) and tightened the cap, which I'll never have to open again. The wires running from the bottom of the candle were then attached to an external "wall wart" three volt power supply. Not only does this approach completely remove the battery compartment cap issue, it allows me to turn the candles on and off remotely on cue, a useful feature given how I use them in my haunt.
Used to be awesome!
By Haunt master

Been buying these for a few years now with the candleopera's and have loved them. This year it seems they went for the cheapo manufacturing and ruined a great product. Its Cheap plastic (It used to feel a bit waxy and the whole candle glowed epically) now the glow goes down about 2 1/2 inches and stops at a plastic base were the LED portion is inserted.. Needless to say im not happy.. returning first chance i get...and asking WHY??

THEY LOOK GREAT IN MY ROOM
Great Effect, poor cap/base design
from Atlanta, GA
About Me Home haunter
This is a 5 star item except for the plastic cap for the batteries. We have purchased 10 candelabras and 4 single hand held candles as well as 1 pack of spare candles. Over a total of 37 individual candles, almost a third were defective. The problem is the threads of the candle/cap are stripped or the diameters are off causing the cap to pop off or not thread properly when you try to turn the candle off or change batteries. Spirit was very good about replacing the candles, but they need to correct the design.Beside that they are very realistic and the battery life is at least 2 weeks before they even seem dimmer when used every night. If you are planning to purchase, order more than you need so you can return the defective ones.
Lovely effect, but some quality issues.

About Me Adventurous, Holiday Fanatic, Trendy
These are by far the most authentic-looking candles I have seen thus far for spooky decor. However, they wear out too quickly! The threading inside the candle where you screw in the battery cap strips easily. We turned these on & off 7-8 nights per season, and by the 3rd season, several had to be replaced because the cap no longer stays on. Also, there are occasional color diffs between packs; some candles cast a slightly diff color glow. Doesn't really irritate me personally, but if you are very picky about consistency, be prepared to switch them around between candle holders and hope you end up with the same color in each holder. All in all, these are awesome - but handle with care, esp if you store the batteries separately each year.

They look great in our haunted house. I got 5 pkgs - one was broke so had to send back Wish there was a store closer to us so I could get and take back things instead of having to send back by mail.
So glad to have spares!
I bought the 5 candle, skull candelabra two years ago. I was very disappointed last year when a couple of the candles did not work & no replacements were available. Now I can replace them & the candelabra looks awesome again! So glad to have these!
By Countess Natasha
Love the flickering light that is below the candle tip - very authentic-looking. Bought several packages to use around the house. They match the candles that go with the candelabras that are also sold here.
realistic flicker candles
look great for Halloween setting.

NOT the same size
from Las Vegas
These candles should be the same size as the original candles that come with the candle prop and they aren't. Very disappointed.
Perfect for a Haunted Mansion
from Miami, FL
The only tall taper, candelabra style battery candles that I've been able to find. Not bright enough to flood a room with light but they have an authentic flicker with a beautiful glow. Perfect for an elegant haunted mansion effect. Beautiful and authentic looking even when they're not lit. I purchased several packages a week ago and they're all working fine.
