Tealight candle FAQs

What is a tealight candle?

A tealight candle is a small, round candle that consists of a metal container that is filled with wax and a short wick. Tealight candles are designed not to drip and can be used to heat teapots or keep fondue warm, and can also be set afloat on water.

How long do tea light candles last?

Long-lasting tealight candles can burn for four hours, otherwise most will burn for three hours.

How to use tea light candles

Tea light candles can lit as they are, but are often placed inside a tealight candle holder to add more decoration and to focus their glow. Tealight candles can be set under specialised teapots to keep them warm, and are often used to keep chocolate fondue in its liquid form as well.

What Else Can I Find At Spotlight?

We have many other kinds of candles for you to enjoy at Spotlight, including:

  • Shaped candles: These candles come in unique shapes like spheres, knots, twisted pillars and bubbles, and are often not burned and used as permanent decorative ornaments.
  • Pillar and taper candles: These tall, free-standing candles are an elegant choice often seen at churches and formal events. Taper candles will need to be in a holder to burn, whilst pillar candles can stand on their own if needed.
  • Jar candles: These candles consist of wax contained in a colourful or beautifully-cut jar, and are able to burn for long lengths of time without the fear of wax spillages.
