Anyone used pygmy bulbs in lava lamps instead of reflectors? Reason I ask is reflectors always die prematurely in my lamp which is a decent one (mathmos)

mmmm i think these are always this price in b n m?:/

I’ve never seen them before but even still, it’s a good price for a lava lamp

I had trouble with bulbs dying in no time with my lamp too. I still use clear reflector ones and got them from Amazon in a pack of 10 for £8.98 (though the price has since nearly doubled!) and they are (so far) lasting a lot longer. A bit odd, but the ones I received are branded Status on the packaging, but have Asda bulbs inside! Maybe that's why they were cheap.

Don't use a different type of bulb. Its the heat from the bulb that makes the wax melt and move. If the heat is not correct then they won't work the same ( the wax could all sit at the top if too hot, or not rise at all if too cold )

I get that and understand how these lamps work but as I've been through so many reflectors of different makes I figured a different bulb, same wattage is likely to give out similar in terms of heat albeit I expect pygmy filaments probably burn a bit cooler than reflectors as they have a bigger filament so spread the heat over a bigger area. Gonna try anyway as only 2 quid but thanks
