Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Does anyone have one? If you do, how stable is your bottle when placed in the base? 
 I’m really struggling to get my bottles to sit level!!

It seems that seond batch quality is better than the first100, but this problem is known to affect some rokits here and there

Hi, mine isn’t a first 100, the bottle arrived cloudy & didn’t fit very well at all, it was replaced with a lovely clear bottle but this one had wax sticking to the glass and it too doesn’t sit level or securely.

I have tried several bottles and all have the same issue.

It’s so frustrating messing about for ages to level a bottle the best I can only for it to start leaning again when the base gets hot!!

It seems to me the lip / ledge that is supposed to support the bottle is not wide enough.

I contacted customer service about this only to be told this is normal and not a fault.

They advised me to rotate the bottle until I’m satisfied ( as if I hadn’t spent ages doing that with various bottles prior to contacting them ).

If I could get my bottles to sit level I would be satisfied and wouldn’t have had to contact them in the first place.

To be honest, even my astros wobble (just tiny, but) so..

with s many first100 returned it's not surprising if they actually just pass on the bad batch. 

I just saw this new line as I've flew away lava lamps for years (I've just turned one old custom clear/orange lunar this evening).

So the advertising of "made to quality in great britain" is just commercial bullshit ? Too bad also they didn't use the old lunar spiked cone, I bet for politically corectness & children.

Hmmmm this one will be going back

Unfortunately, not the case anymore I’ve had so many issues over the last couple of years.

cloudy scratched and chipped bottles 

Staining on the inside of the glass

Black debris in wax

Metal fragments in wax

Fruit fly in wax

Lots of bottles with wax sticking to the glass.

Wax that just melts, and does nothing else.

and now a £295 Wonky Rokit.

Ouch ! Takes me back to the shinny chrome IO took 4 attempts to get one that didn’t have chipped & bubbled chrome everywhere.

Family were going to buy me a Saturn & second bottle for my 50th but I have declined the offer due to all the problems I have had. It’s not worth the risk, hassle & possible embarrassment. I would be mortified if they spent that money only to discover issues with the lamp and or bottles.
