Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Please enjoy the cheesy music bed I chose. :) This is a hard lamp to film, but here's my best attempt.

It's not bad! Looks better in person than in pics. It's actually very neat to watch. I got this from Amazon for $18 shipped.

EDIT: apparently, this is supposed to have GLITTER in it. Either the glitter is dissolved, or Lava Lite's idea of glitter is different than mine. There is NO glitter in this lamp. There IS white "stuff" in there - looks like the same kinda stuff that's in snow globes.

Well this sucks. Amazon.com is telling me I've already reviewed this item, but I haven't. I think the problem is that all these lamps are lumped underneath the same item - if you look at the page there are 1,292 reviews and obviously, they aren't all for the Tornado Lava Lamp - they're all lumped together. I have reviewed several lava lamps, but not this one, so I'm guessing another one I've reviewed is "counting" towards this one. Fart.

Oh wow, that is pretty off topic Erin!  I would definitely cue people in on factual specs of the product.

The description on amazon.com's page for this (Tornado) lamp is all kinds of WRONG:

"Tornado rages on with the combination of glitter and color-phasing LED light" - wrong, no glitter

"Color phasing wax with clear liquid and black base" - um, nope.

"Soothing slow moving bubbles" - again, no.

"Glass housing with steel base and matching top" - base and cap are plastic, not metal

"while its color phasing-wax/clear-liquid color scheme" - I feel like they're not even reading their own shit...

"a brushed-steel base anchors the unit" - not steel

"Powered with a standard electrical cord and lit with a 25-watt incandescent bulb" - seriously... no bulb is in this lamp. 


Looks like I need to write a review...

I wish the two lamps could mesh together. The visual appeal of the funnel from your lamp and the dazzle of the glitter from the Vortex model. Still want one and would go towards the model you picked up Erin. Would also be cool to have a severity adjustment F1 to F5, maybe throw some mini cow toys and fence posts in there for kicks!

OK, I think we have some of the mystery solved. There are two lamps:

* Tornado lamp: http://www.amazon.com/Lava-Lite-7220-Tornado-Phasing/dp/B008GPQPDC/...

* Vortex lamp: http://www.amazon.com/Lava-Lite-2210-20-Ounce-Color-Phasing/dp/B004... 

I thought they were one in the same. 

Susan's response was this, but I think she got a few of the details wrong:

"The Vortex and Tornado are to different types of lamps.

Your Tornado has glitter and is not white fluff but moves faster and quicker due to the Tornado affect.

Your lamp looks great! And the Tornado is really moving.

The Vortex rotates slower and moves the glitter at a different speed."

She said my tornado has glitter and is not white fluff. It's DEFINTELY not glitter. 


I ordered a Vortex lamp from amazon.com, so I'll be doing a comparison soon! Again, it would help immensely if they would do accurate product shots on the boxes. The box for my tornado lamp definitely has the word "glitter" on it though!

OK, I'll do that Carol! I'm curious to see what they say. 

Comment by Carol on August 25, 2014 at 10:06am

Post up the reply you get back Erin....I'm curious to know myself and in case I may want to add that one to my collection down the road...

The chocolate lamps were a weird batch of black that came out brown... which wasn't a horrible thing, as the brown was kinda cool. They didn't turn brown - they came that way.

Here's what I emailed Lava Lite:

Hello! I recently bought one of your Color-Phasing Tornado Lava Lamps off of amazon.com. I really liked it, but then, as I was looking at other videos of them on YouTube, I noticed that some of them had glitter in them. I then checked out the description and the box itself, and sure enough, it does mention glitter ("glitter action"). Yet, my lamp has no glitter in it - only what I can describe as white "fluff" like you'd see in a snowglobe.

Was the glitter in these lamps replaced with this white stuff, or is it possible that the glitter disintegrated into this white material? I'd really prefer to have a tornado lamp with glitter and not the white material.

Here's my video:

And here's ones with glitter:

Any help you can provide would be great! Thank you so much.

From the vids I saw of the ones with glitter Erin, it does throw a nice sparkle outwards.......and yep, who knows what you're gonna pull out of that box when it comes to LL and their pics, lol!!!  Didn't they have a small amount of lamps back in the day that stated black lava, but the lamp was actually chocolate??
