ok....I need some help locating a bulb for my mathmos fluidium ross lovegrove model...can anyone help?...there is nothing on the package box to indicate the bulb type...I guess Im looking for a wattage and bulb type???
These Are a nornal clear 40w ses goft ball, most supermarkets will have them about a £1 for two. Has your's got the heat shield. if so this is the bulb you need. The colour bulbs you can't no longer get from mathmos. go to this link.
If you have a heat shield then use a 40 watt small screw pearl golfball bulb. They are cheap as chips in places like Morrissons, ASDA etc. Don't order the ones from Mathmos because the price is a complete rip off and the reflector bulbs run them way too hot!!
For colour boosting i would try an R50 ses 40 watt reflector bulb. Places like B&Q. Homebase etc stock these types of bulbs (saw some in this morning).
I had 4 reflector bulbs from Mathmos which i got for free but never used them...could only run the Fluidium's for a max of 2 hours which is a waste of time as far as i'm concerned.
The only reason i suggested an R50 reflector bulb for colour boosting is that i could never find a coloured golfball type bulb.
Yes I have tryed useing r50 myself, and it is too big the the lamp casing I have picked up glass paints form alan's & barrys craft shop there £3.50 each and they do load's of colour's to paint your own bulb's, Still asking the question can a E14 ses reflector Golf ball work ok?
