Flame light bulbs are a safe, energy-efficient alternative to gas lamps and lanterns. Most flame light bulbs are made up of cleverly placed LEDs, but some, called "flicker flame bulbs," are actually neon bulbs with carefully positioned electrodes. While both can produce a convincing effect, LED flame bulbs tend to be the most durable and also draw far less energy than their neon counterparts. LED flame bulbs often feature a self-adjusting flame orientation, allowing you to install them both upside-down and right side up. However, not all adjust to both positions, so it's still a good idea to check before you buy. Flame light bulbs also come with varying base sizes to fit different fixtures. For instance, candelabra flame bulbs come with E12 bases while standard models will have an E26 base. If you're searching for a versatile option, a flame bulb that offers different settings like flame emulation, breathe, and general/solid is worth considering.
