Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has received their pre-order of a Mathmos Smart Astro yet. I ordered mine back in the middle of September and I've not received mine as yet. Hopefully they will be coming out soon, I paid for two as I ordered them.
They've arrived. They look great, they are standing at the moment because they've been stirred up in transit so there's little bits of wax floating around, I've seen that before with other bottles that have been in transit, seems normal to me. I will heat them up when all the flakes have gone to the bottom.
The only thing that concerns me a little at this stage is I can see the water level on both bottles, that should go though when they heat.
The box isn't numbered the actual lamp bases have a numbered sticker on the bottom, no mention of limited edition etc (well, not that I can find) The stickers on mine say 00028 and 00111.
I must be really colour blind as the wax for the pink to me looks like purple. The wax for the yellow looks like a green...........excuse me while I dash off to get my eyes tested lol.
Looking great, cannot wait to set them up in place and heat them up.
Here's some photos, you can just make out that the wax is lit. The room they are in isn't bright, too early to tell yet though as I've only just switched them on.
I've struggled to get them to stand up straight and the bottles are not fitting correctly on the base, so I'm not sure if they are sitting on the heating plate, hope that isn't going to cause a problem when they run.
Yes, they run on a transformer which you attach to the lamp by plugging it into the bottom of the base. There is a small circular heating plate that is around 1cm wide and it runs around the edge of the base. The LED's can be seen through the middle of the heating plate (if that makes sense lol). The wax is just starting to lift up a bit now. The fazing of the colours on one of the lamps seems to go much quicker than the other. The blue will be stunning, it is really bright blue............
