UCO 12-hour natural beeswax candles are custom designed for use in UCO candle lanterns but are equally applicable to a variety of indoor and outdoor uses, including emergency power outages or simply providing warm, ambient light. Featuring a clean-burning, dripless formulation with a specially designed wick, the candles can last for 12-15 hours in a lantern. A beeswax candle flame has a "warmer," more yellow color than that of paraffin and the color of the flame may vary depending on the season in which the wax was harvested. 100% natural.

However potential purchasers of the UCO candle holder and beeswax candles should be aware that it is quite difficult - and an extremely slow operation - when you want to remove a spent candle from the UCO candle holder.
Melted wax forms an extremely tight seal inside the barrel, so opening the candle holder is difficult, and not made easier by the fact that the UCO candle holder is quite flimsy, so it can't be gripped or manipulated with any force.
It's an operation which requires a blade, good light and a good work surface. I imagine it would be frustrating at dusk while camping. Fluent cursing is essential.

Beeswax burns brightly and with little soot. I think the flame is slightly more orange and cheery than you get from a paraffin candle, but that might just be my imagination. You just can't beat candles for subtle lighting, and beeswax in particular.
However, unless you have a UCO lantern, I can't think of any reason for buying these candles. Even pure beeswax candles are usually not this expensive. For use outside a lantern, they are an inconvenient shape, too -- too fat to stick in the neck of a wine bottle, and too thin to stand on their own. I think the optimal thickness for a beeswax candle is about 2-3 inches diameter -- fat enough to stand unsupported, but no so fat that wax pools under the wick and damps the flame.
In the lantern, each of these candles lasts maybe four hours. That's way, way less than the advertised "12-15 hours". I wonder if that advertised figure is for the whole pack, rather than one candle? That makes the cost of illumination about £1 per hour. A 1-watt LED lamp is about the same brightness, but is a whole 10,000 times cheaper to run. That's to be expected, of course, but these candles compare unfavourably even with other beeswax candles.
If you have a UCO candle lantern you may have no choice but to use these candles, but I can't think of any other reason to.
