Child Safety Tests

Neo is the first Mathmos lava lamp for kids and adults and has passed the stringent safety tests that this involves. Unlike other lava lamps the bottle is attached to the base, the bulb is not accessible without a tool, it is very stable and not too hot.

 

Low Voltage

Neo lava lamp is low voltage and powered by a 20w long lasting halogen capsule bulb, included. The built in reflector ensures that heat and light are directed towards the lava and away from the metal.

 

Shatter Proof Glass

Neo’s Mathmos branded bottle has a coating of shatter proof glass ensuring that should the worst happen and the bottle falls and breaks the glass will be held together.

 

Fixing Points

Neo’s base has two fixing points allowing you to affix it to a surface for extra safety, if for example used in a busy children’s bedroom.

 

By Jonathan Coles Studio

Lighting designer Jonathan Coles and his team spent two years ensuring that Neo looks fabulous and works brilliantly.

 

Cast Metal

Neo is made of solid precision cast metal. Whilst they are complex moulding designs it could not be simpler to assemble with just two pieces to put together and one screw, Allen key provided.

 

Unique Formulation

As with all Mathmos’ lava lamps the bottle is made in Britain and filled by hand in our factory in Dorset with Mathmos’ unique lava lamp formula. Over 50 years of experience and expertise ensures that Mathmos lava flows better, is clearer and lasts longer.

 

Unique Shape

Neo’s unique sweeping back plate has been optically designed ensuring that it both frames and reflects the lava and looks good from any angle.

POSITION

  • Choose a position inside on a clean and horizontal surface.
  • Do not place near sources of heat or cold, such as a heater or air conditioner. The product operates at its best in a room between 68º F/20º C and 75º F/24ºC.
  • Keep the cable away from heated surfaces.
  • This product is not suitable to be set up on glass surfaces.
  • For best performance we recommend you keep the product away from: sunlight to prevent fading drafts and cold places to prevent slow operation and freezing, hot places to prevent overheating.
  • For indoor use only.

 

CHILDREN

This product has been manufactured to relevant safety standards. However, for use with children we suggest to ensure that the product is not knocked to the floor and that you fix the product to a surface, see below. When Neo is not fully assembled do not leave it in reach of children as it contains small parts.

SETUP

This product comes with 8 components:

  1. Base
  2. Bottle
  3. Long arm piece
  4. M4 Screw x 1
  5. M2.5 Allen key x 1
  6. Switching power adapter
  7. UK interchangeable plug
  8. EU interchangeable plug

To assemble:

  1. Place the base on a stable and flat surface. OPTIONAL: The base ring has x2 screw holes that allow you to fix the base (if required) onto a suitable flat even surface. We recommend you use suitable screws (x2 of the same specification) for the desired surface you will be fixing the base onto. You must ensure the base is positioned and secured safely onto to the desired surface. Once fixed, the base should be free from movement at all times. (fixing screws not supplied) (figure 1)
  2. Take the bottle and place the long arm piece over the top of the bottle and push in place (figure 2)
  3. Firmly hold the bottle and arm piece using both hands and carefully place into the base and line up with the screw hole on the base - please do this by slotting the arm piece into the cavity (below the screw hole) in the base. (figure 3)
  4. Insert the screw provided and tighten with the allen key till firm (figure 4)
  5. Slide the correct plug (EU plug or UK plug) onto the switching power adapter until it clicks (figure 5)
  6. Plug the switching adaptor provided into base cable port. Plug the product in and turn it on (figure 6)

WARM UP

Warm up takes between 1-3 hours depending on the surrounding temperature. Stalagmite shapes may form during the warm up process, these will then melt and the lava will begin to flow. It is normal for the glass to have small air bubbles and moulding scars.

OPERATION

  • Your Mathmos product will operate best after it has been used four or five times. For the first few times you may see small air bubbles in the lava. Please note the heating time will decrease after several uses.
  • Please do not leave the product on for more than six hours a day or allow it to overheat; this will prolong the life of your product. Overheating will shorten the life of the product; if it is overheating there will be either only one large bubble at the top of the bottle or a lot of very small bubbles.
  • Never move or shake the product when it is in use or still warm, as this causes irreparable clouding.

REPLACEMENTS

When your product has ended its life it will begin to go cloudy, the colours may fade and it will not move as well as it once did. This will happen after approximately 2000 hours in operation. Whether your product has ended its life or when you wish to have an alternative colour combination, visit our website at www.mathmos.com for more information on a replacement bottle or full product. Please note we do not refill bottles. Please on no account open the secure cap and add liquids.

If the bulb blows, please replace it with one of the same type and wattage. Only fit the correct bulb, as stated in the label in the base. Visit our website at www.mathmos.com for more information on replacement bulbs.

IMPORTANT! Always allow your product to cool down completely prior to handling or moving the product.
Once your product has completely cooled, using the allen key provided to unscrew and remove the back screw out (keep these components safe). Carefully, holding both the bottle and arm piece, lift and remove the bottle and arm piece from the base. Carefully take the arm piece off the bottle and place it onto the bottle you would like to use. Now refer to ‘set up’ for instructions on how to assemble.

  13. Q. Why does my lava lamp have specs and bubbles in the glass?

  14. Q. What are the differences in quality between a Mathmos lava lamp and others?
    A. A different lava formulation giving better lava flow, longer life, clearer liquids and more vivid colours. The metal parts are of a thicker, higher grade metal allowing us to hand polish them to a high shine. Our bulbs are directional taking the heat away from the base and directing the light into the lava. We have a higher standard of safety and build quality audited by a number of different bodies. We provide a comprehensive range of spare parts unlike other throw away products. We have 50 years of British manufacturing excellence to draw on.
  15. Q. How long should it take for my lava lamp to warm up?
    A. Lava lamps should start working within an hour to an hour and a half of turning them on. First they will form stalagmite shapes, then they will start to form lava lamp shapes.

    If you lava lamp does not warm up in this time it may be positioned in the wrong place or the room may be too cold. Lava lamps should be positioned away from drafts and air conditioning. The room should be at least 20 degrees centigrade.
