Which one do you think is better? I like them both, and both have pros and cons. Lunar looks too bulky on the base, but is has 360 degrees viewing points and costs much more.iO has a sleek design but…Continue

"I'd assume the bulbs Mathmos sells have been well tested. I do have a few, but haven't had to use one yet. Note, it looks like reflector bulb you linked is the kind with a full reflector, not a dichroic filter. This kind of bulb should…"

"Mathmos still sell halogen Fluidum bulbs here - although personally I don't trust those halogen bulbs in a Fluidium, they are larger than the incandescent bulbs and sit very close to the 'fins' on the inside of the base, I fear they…"

"Yeah i know they sell bulbs, but they do not sell bulbs for fluidiums anymore... The closest thing to them are the astro bulbs, do they work on fluidiums?"

Incandescent bulbs and the destiny of the lava lamps

Hi guys, i know that this topic has been made many times, but I wanted an update on this subject. I recently aquired a mathmos fluidium and I was wondering where do you all get bulbs from. Some people told me to go online, because the hardware stores only sell led bulbs now, are these bulbs still produced or are lava lamps condemned thanks to the incandescent bulbs ban? How is mathmos trying to solve this problem? Will an astro bulb work on a fluidium? Are they still producing these bulbs or…See More

"The iO is ok, It's far from perfect, I currently own 1 but have had 2, Both First 100s, one was sent back right away due to poor finish and build. Sadly a lot of the iO's have the same issue, Coating damage, Scratches, Chips, and now some…"
