"What I do for my Astrobabys and Telstars is I just buy the official Mathmos GU10 28W bulbs and use a voltage converter. For my Astros I buy a plug adapter (not a voltage adapter) and use a 120V full size GU10 35W bulb. I find the wider bulbs work…"

"Wow. Thanks so much for the link! I didn't realize there was a "mini" version of GU10. It looks like the bulbs I received will fit, but since my base says max of 28W, I've been hesitant to try in fear of messing things up.…"

Hi,I've had a Mathmos Astro Baby Lava lamp for almost a month now (I'm based in the US and used forward2me). The original unit was faulty so Mathmos sent me a replacement and I ate the shipping cost again, which I wasn't thrilled about, but the replacement worked so I was a happy camper.
