About this deal

I recommend testing this. Light your emergency candles to see how many you need to light the space adequately! Example: That comes out to 50 hours of lighting. However, you want to add a margin of error of 50%, so you instead calculate 75 hours. When buying emergency candles (often also called survival candles), there are a few critical things you need to look at:

Three versions of the candle are available, the Original Wax candles, Citronella to keep insects at bay, and both have a burn time of 9 hours. Stability: You don’t want your emergency candle toppling over on you. Thin, tapered candles are fine, but you’ll need to buy a suitable candle holder. The real benefits of UCO candle lanterns come from the candle flame itself. Candles give a small, subtle heat to your environment, such as tents, helping to take off the initial chill and reducing that annoying damp and condensation we have all felt camping from time to time. They can be especially useful in damp conditions.

hour citronella candle that releases a pleasant citronella aroma to help keep mosquitoes and other bugs at bay, especially while camping near water sources.

A power outage that lasts 200 minutes doesn’t seem that long. But bear in mind that it’s an average. UCO candle lanterns are aluminium lanterns, used since the early 70’s, designed specifically for UCO’s own candles as a form of light and heat. They can be also be used with any regular candle that fits. I honestly don’t know why more people don’t do this with their candles. It is straightforward with taper candles because all you have to do is save the wax as it drips off. It is a bit more difficult with jar candles and tea lights because you must remove the old wax from the jar/holder.


As a kid, candles were the way to go for emergency lighting. This was mainly because flashlight batteries were expensive, and rechargeable ones weren’t common.
