[Amazon.ca] Sterno Emergency Candle, 6 inch, white, $9.29 each

Emergency smokeless white candle 6 inch long. These are well known to be used as emergency lighting. Please use these at your own discretion and be mindful for potential fire hazard ! Regular price are about $15-20 CAD AND USD. I think 9.29 is fairly decent price to keep 1 or 2 at home.

The real reason for this candle is not for light, but rather for heat. Light is a nice side benefit.

Thanks,

The average human puts out something like 100W of heat while a candle measures at about to 80W. So not a big amount, especially when the smallest gas furnaces are 40,000BTU or ~11,700W. Even a standard 1500W space heater would put a candle to shame.

You aren't heating a room here. The heat from an emergency candle is for emergencies. A single candle can keep 4 people in a vehicle from freezing to death.

I'm not moving anything anywhere. If you don't buy why someone wants this candle, then don't buy it. Simple pimple.

FYI a candle is not meant to replace all the heat produced by a human body. SMH.

It never was, it advertises its light producing time, it is you who is thinking its small amount of heat is more important.

Ok, I concede that it is advertised as a light source, however if you have spent time in the north you would know that a candle in the glove box/emergency bag is a regular item. These posts aren't helping anybody, so I'll leave it at this.

Thanks,

Yet if your going to think the heat from this will save you you will die.
It is important to know how things really work, for light i have several flashlights with NiMH batteries which will work well below the coldest winter temperature where i am located. If i were going even colder i would research what i need. Then you need clothing for the temperatures, you can get parkas and pants and mittens instead of gloves and everything else for the temperature you need. And if your going to be camping sleeping bags rated to below the temperature and so forth.
Survival depends on being ready for the conditions you might encounter, not thinking a candle will warm you no matter the 99% design temperature.
In general you also want an autoclub membership and a cell phone (and a car charger).

You most certainly can, you just need a light large enough that doesn't step down too quickly.

I have a light that can easily burn anything within a few seconds of it being on and the light is small enough to fit in my hand.
