Product Description

Product Description

The first motion lamp was designed in 1963 by an English engineer, Edward Craven Walker, who marketed it under the name Astro Lamp. In 1965, two American entrepreneurs saw the Astro lamp displayed at a trade show in Brussels, bought the rights to market the lamp worldwide and formed the Lava Corporation in Chicago. The Astro Lamp was renamed the Lava Lamp and an icon was born. Watch the different-sized formations of melted wax collide, flow, and split apart as they ooze their way up and down the glass globe. Provides relaxing, soft light , 25 watt light bulb included. Plugs into a power outlet.

1 x cap
1 x base

I wanted a lava lamp that gave off a warm glow and this one certainly does. Amazon's website describes this as purple/yellow and on arrival when cold, it is visibly a yellow wax in purple liquid. However, reviewers had described it as purple/orange which is what I was looking for and once warmed up this lava lamp definitely gives off more of a warm red glow.

The purple liquid glows a purply red with the bubbles at the bottom glowing deep yellow through to a burnt reddy orange on rising. The bubbles in my photo look more orange when they are actually much more red than this.

It took about 1 1/2 hours from cold to start gaining movement, but was bubbling well in about 2 hours, but it really does depend on the ambient room temperature and if it has been in use hours before. On first use there appears to be no issues with my new 'lavalite' lamp and it is just what I was looking for.

Don't worry if the liquid sits short of the top cap level at first, this soon disappears as the liquid heats up and expands. WARNING! The lamp does become very hot so I advise caution with young children.

Update: However, after only a few uses the wax refused to bubble, no matter how long it was given to heat up. My daughter had to return 2 faulty Lavalite lamps to another seller before she got one that worked; one faulty lamp gave off a worrying electrical crackle and so was immediately returned, the other stopped bubbling after only a few uses, so I suppose it's a case of finding one that works.

Lovely item. Looks well-made and stylish and radiates a warm glow. It took about 2 hours to "get going" but this may have been due to the fact that the gel was standing upright instead of sitting at the bottom of the glass and may, therefore, have taken longer to liquify. My advice is to make sure that the gel is lying flat at the bottom before you switch it on. The blobs and movements seem to get better the longer you have it on.

This arrived today, 1 day before the estimated delivery day, so super fast and very well packaged.

I got the wax to sit evenly on the bottom so the metal coil heated properly then plugged it in after fitting the bulb.
It has taken about 1hr 45mins to really get bubbling, but produced some interesting shapes before that.

The wax colours are similar to the photo, so the bottom wax (closest to the light) is yellowy/orange going up to a beautiful deep pinky/red as it floats to the top.
The water is a lovely violet/pinky-purple colour, so not as stark purple as the photo, but in my opinion much prettier and more subtle.

Overall I love this lamp, It's a good size and looks fabulous. Gives off an ambiant light, and I have mine standing by a mirror so I get double the effect.

I would highly recommend this lamp for this great price.
Happy Christmas to me... :)

As other people have commented, it worked fine the first few times I used it, but recently the lava just sits at the bottom of the lamp in one big blob not moving. I researched how to make the lava start moving again and tried out all of the tips, but none of them worked. And now I'm four days late to return it. I'm very disappointed. Don't buy!

I was a bit worried to begin with as I noticed the wire coil that should be at the bottom to heat the lava was perched at the side of the lamp. It did take 2 days at approx 5 hours to get it in position but now it works well so long as you give it about 2 hours to warm up properly in the meantime you can enjoy the sculptures that the lava makes before it bubbles. ( faces, moon, animals ) Yes it helps to have imagination. I would call it more red than purple when alight only when it is off I would say purple.

I love the lamp got it as a present but disappointingly after a short period of time the wax just lay as a blob at the bottom, the first one was replaced very promptly but the second one has gone the same way and will be getting sent back as well. Maybe third time lucky!!!!! Can't fault the service.
