Helpful Information

IMC offers many different varieties of candles, both electric and battery. Bases come in brass, pewter, and antique bronze. Bases are metal, plastic or mesaflex, a compound plastic which is made with steel fiber and has more weight than the cheaper window candles available.


Electric candles feature a cool burning electric bulb which is easier on the touch and are plugged in with an on/off switch. Some are also available with light sensors or timers.

Battery candles feature the double bright LED bulb which lasts upwards of 1500 hrs on 2 AA batteries.

Light sensor candles are designed to go on at dusk and go off at dawn. They will work in any dark space.

Timer candles will go on for 6 hours and then off for 18 hours, repeating daily. To activate them, you screw in the bulb and then they will turn on for 6 hours, off for 18.

Steady burning stays on when turned on.


Most IMC candles are made of styrene, which is a plastic. Some have metal bases, which makes them much more expensive but adds value as a home decor or gift item. There are also some that are mesaflex, which is a combination material which is stronger and heavier than regular plastic but less expensive than metal.

All electric candles are UL aproved. Replacement bulbs are available for both electric and LED candles.


Some IMC candles come boxed. The rest come in a molded plastic package as pictured.
