Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi everyone!

I have been running my '98 astro with this bulb: https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/5641/DEC-101045.html with great success.  Now I am planning on ordering a fluidium and some astro bottles. I have seen pictures of fluidiums with different types of bulbs (reflector, golfball), and I have seen, on mathmos's website that the heritage bottles are "only compatible" with the heritage base.  I assume this is because of a different bulb? Can anybody tell me what bulb the most recent fluidium, and heritage astro use.  I was thinking maybe this (http://www.bulbsandlighting.com/40-watt-125130-volt-R16-European-Sc...)  for the fluidium, or would it be too tall in the base.  I am planning on running the astro bottles on my current astro base, as wel as LL 52oz bases (coach, century...) would they supply the appropriate amount of heat?  Thanks!

Thanks Aladdin, but unfortunately, here in the states we have 120v.

I spent months looking for a 120v bulb that has the same shape

as a UK 240v bulb..  You will not find one, I have tried... They

look close on the internet, but when you try it it wont fit.

The OP's second link looks close, a fluey uses a 40w reflector.

Its all about the size of the screw in part, the length and

bulb shape whether round or reflector.  I gave up and went

with a step up transformer.  I hope you find something.

Derrrr... I had a blonde moment there cowmation  lol.
