Everyone knows that LED light bulbs are better for the environment, provide a brighter light while using less power than other types of bulbs, and they are energy efficient.

Previously, there have been LED decorative bulbs to help “spice up” your lighting options, but now here comes the real heat: Flaming LED Light Bulbs!

What is a LED flame effect bulb?

outdoor LED flame bulb vs incandescentThe definition of a flame LED light bulb is pretty straight forward: it is an LED light bulb that looks like a realistic burning flame. These bulbs typically fit anywhere an LED bulb fits and generally have a medium (E26) base.

One thing that is different about a LED flame light is that it does not cast out light. This decorative LED bulb is designed to look like a real flickering flame without having an actual open flame.

The flaming LED light bulbs are more realistic and intense than regular incandescent bulbs that simply emit a yellow light at a low color temperature. With this LED lighting option, it looks like you are getting the real deal without having the hassle of continually lighting a flame.

Where would I use a flame LED light bulb?

LED flame light bulbs can be used for both indoor and outdoor locations including:
