Hey all!I got my second imported Mathmos, a beautiful copper/black Telstar with Green/Blue bottle. I'm using a converter for the wattage. This is probably the 5th or 6th time I'm running it and it…Continue
"I'm so glad I found this post. I bought a used older astro base and cap off someone here and figured I could use that to make sure I can rewire these. If it works well, I'll be re-wiring the newer astro I have coming directly from Mathmos…"
"that stretchy flow is what craven walker did, unlike just blobs, if the coil isnt covered and the wax is going up just on one side of it then id say its to hot as in the wax isnt making contact with all of the coil.
But if it is and youre…"
"Interesting... Another collector just got his imported to the US as well and said he was convinced that the 28W bulb wasn't strong enough, I wonder if that's the case with mine, given that I'm operating it in a room that's at…"
Hey all!I got my second imported Mathmos, a beautiful copper/black Telstar with Green/Blue bottle. I'm using a converter for the wattage.

"I guess...the photos on the mathmos website are pretty close, but in person it's maybe a bit cooler in color temperature, slightly more purple (not much) and overall just more saturated. I usually have mine on in the evening, so the purple…"
"Was a bit confused about the violet/pink colourway as some photos online seem to make it look very pink, others purple, whereas in some it just looks red, of course the colours don't always come out accurately on camera - which would you say…"
"Being that this is my first Mathmos, I can't compare the colors to others just yet, but all I can say is the photos don't do the brilliance justice IMO. Like i tried my best to boost the contrast/balance on the image I posted to get it as…"
"So I recently got a pair of mathmos neos in the color combo you're talking about and I'm not experiencing any flow or clarity issues. The other lamps I have are american models with worse quality wax/glass anyways, so maybe it's not a…"
"Had been toying with the idea of getting a Neo recently, but was a bit put off by all of the negative feedback, I’m sure I have also read that the plastic coating on the bottle deteriorates/ becomes hazy over time. How do you find the…"
