What bulbs do you guys use for your Mathmos Astros and Astrobabies? I was at my local Tesco and all the had was rather rubbish looking LED replacements... I left almost having a panic attack! I see on the Mathmos site they are now shipping Astros and Astrobabies with 2 pin halogen bulbs now? What does the future hold? I don't want to spend a fortune getting replacement bases. I really need bulbs for my babies!
I was concerned that "light equivalent 35w" wouldn't work because the lava lamp needs heat not light, but you're saying that it is actually equivalent to what Mathmos provides with their lamps?

I have tried out these 30W bulbs
and they seem to be giving perfectly satisfactory lava action. It may be that the extra 5W just don't matter much.
they look like the standard 30watt that babys and telstars used, so should be fine
i use a u.k version of these in my crestworths, work fine in all bases
