"I do like my iO, but I think it would have been better without the bars down the side of the bottle. At the time, I assumed this was done for modern safety reasons, so that if knocked over the whole thing doesn't fall apart and the bottle is…"

"Yes, it's the same problem the iO has, and (dare I say it) even the Lunar. It's all base and no bottle. On an iO, the height of bottle you can see is actually barely more than an Astro, although it's fatter."

"Ideally, if they could make another lamp using this bottle, but with a much smaller base (both in height and width), more people might be able to buy it. Maybe if the base was about a foot and a half (45 cm), and the bottle is then I think about 2…"

"Hi Laurie in 2021! What I've found over the past few years is that bulbs vary between brands anyway, i.e., a 30W bulb from one company could be hotter than a 30W bulb from another company. And unfortunately, lava lamps are very sensitive to…"

"I'm reading this in 2021... I always had frosted bulbs a few years ago I replaced with clear.. I could tell it was hotter, now it's, making a lot of bubbles. I was told to try a dimmer, I don't have yet, maybe a new base. It's…"

"I've got one of the First 100 iOs (number 74) and haven't had any problems with flaking. Well, when I life the top part off to change the bulb and then put it back on, there is a bit of flaking when the parts rub together, but nothing…"

Hi there and welcome to Oozing Goo. I've had trouble with these Mathmos bulbs. One blew after just a handful of runs (copper heritage Astro) the other one fared far worse still, just 20 minutes or less (new Astro metallic). None too impressed although Mathmos did kindly send some replacement bulbs.
