i dont have a meter or i would check them
hmm, well then maybe it's not a problem with the dimmer since your lamps flow at those voltages. i have a bulb extender on the way so i'll give it a try.
I checked on my v2.0 grande I get 101v. Also checked my regular grande that has a custom dimmer and got 99v..
The regular grande is a p/y and flows great on that base, warms up in like 4.5hrs and flows at 80% dimmer
Hey Joanne, how long did you leave them wrapped for? Wrap it up for an hour or so but check it from time to time, it should be fine though
had them wrapped for over 3 hours .
Yea i dont get it the globe is HOT HOT HOT thats why i didnt think of the 'wrap' thing. The dimmer is definitely useless . It gets so hot I am afraid I am going to cook the wax .
Direct quotes from the LL website:
As opposed to what, an even longer start?
Given that it takes my v1 Grande 8 hours just to get moving, that doesn't leave a whole lot of time.
It really is a testament to the affinity we have for these lamps that we're willing to go to such ridiculous lengths to get them to do what they're supposed to do. It makes me wonder what the casual buyer must be thinking when they buy one and encounter these problems. If I hadn't found the wealth of information on this site, I'd have given up on the product long ago.
I agree Rob I would have sat disappointed with mine and never bought another lava lamp again .
If i really thought it would change things I would not be the least bit upset that i had to spend time 'breaking it in ' But i really dont think this thing is going to change any
