Telstar Slow Flow

Hey all!I got my second imported Mathmos, a beautiful copper/black Telstar with Green/Blue bottle. I'm using a converter for the wattage. This is probably the 5th or 6th time I'm running it and it flows...just really slowly. Like, it'll shoot up a big blob like in the image, usually one at a time and very slowly.

"I guess...the photos on the mathmos website are pretty close, but in person it's maybe a bit cooler in color temperature, slightly more purple (not much) and overall just more saturated. I usually have mine on in the evening, so the purple…"

James replied to James's discussion Mathmos Wall Neos (Violet/Pink)
"Being that this is my first Mathmos, I can't compare the colors to others just yet, but all I can say is the photos don't do the brilliance justice IMO. Like i tried my best to boost the contrast/balance on the image I posted to get it as…"

"Had been toying with the idea of getting a Neo recently, but was a bit put off by all of the negative feedback, I’m sure I have also read that the plastic coating on the bottle deteriorates/ becomes hazy over time.
