LED Tea Light is an excellent alternative to the traditional wax Tea lights, they are a fantastic type of candle that you can use throughout your home as decoration and for many other purposes. A common question if you’ve never had tea lights in your house before is, “do LED tea lights get hot?” One of the many great things about LED Tea light is that they don’t usually get hot. Go ahead and touch the “flame,”—the small LED light stays nice and cool. Use them to light a campsite, set a romantic mood in the bedroom or place them around the house for a party and you won’t have to worry that they will cause fire hazard.

Much like traditional wax tea lights, flameless tea lights are super simple in design. They consist of a small battery attached to a LED, which is all housed in a candle-shaped container to make it look as close to a real tea light as possible.

LED, which is short for light-emitting diode, is the type of light used in most flameless tea lights. LEDs are known to stay pretty cool and have a long battery life, which means you won’t have to worry about your flameless tea light getting too hot or running out of battery super often. If you run an LED for a super long time, they can get slightly warm, but they won’t get very hot.

Since a small battery and an LED typically power flameless tea lights, there is no significant heat source that could cause your tea light to heat up.

Flameless Tea Lights:

Flame-less tea lights are known to NOT produce much heat at all.

LEDs are commonly positioned upright in an electric tea light, which adds to their ability to disperse heat and stay cool to the touch. This design choice, combined with all of the other attributes of LEDs, makes electric tea lights stay pretty cool and not put off any significant amount of heat.

As I’ve mentioned before, the heat put off by electric tea lights is pretty close to zero, so the chances of them starting a fire are minimal. Of course, there are probably those freak accidents, but the far majority of the time, there is zero fire risk from an unaltered LED tea light.

The LED bulbs in a flameless candle can’t cause a fire on their own. LED bulbs aren’t hot to the touch, but even if they are warm, LED bulbs can’t generate enough heat to cause a fire.

Battery operated flameless tea lights can provide the home décor, fragrance, and glow/flicker of real candlelight, they provide candle-like ambience while significantly reducing your ministry's risk of fire. Advantages include: No fire risk from an open flame. No hot, melting or dripping wax.In addition to protecting your home, flameless Tea Light candles are more economical, last forever, they are safe.

How do you clean flameless Tea Light candles?

When candles get dusty or grimy, it's tough to get them clean with a simple duster or wet cloth. Rubbing alcohol will do the job nicely, though. As Homemakers Daily suggests, just dab a bit of isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball or soft cloth.

Overall, electric tea lights will not get hot in the slightest. As mentioned above, if you run an LED for extended periods, it could get hot, but it shouldn’t be a concern because LEDs will get slightly warm at most.
