To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this Lava Lamp to replace a US Lava Lamp for which I can no longer get light bulbs. I was extremely disappointed as it was faulty out of the box - the light just wouldn't turn on. I tried three different bulbs - it blew one immediately and the other two wouldn't turn on at all. In addition, the coil at the bottom was just floating around in the bottle and the liquid was cloudy. Returned it for a refund but the return shipping cost me twice what the lamp is worth and Amazon would only reimburse half of it. So I ended up being out of pocket for the privilege of being sent a useless product - thanks Lava Lamp and Amazon. I have now purchased a much better quality one directly from Mathmos. Lesson learnt!
I guess I should have known better when i saw it was coming from the UK. Silly me assumed that a lamp for sale on the Australian Amazon site would come with an Australian plug. Thankfully I had an adaptor or else I would have had a disappointed child on Xmas.
Unfortunately ours did not work. Bought as a present for a birthday and not opened until just after the 30day return window so unable to get refund. The light turns out but the lava aspect does not work. Naturally a very disappointed 9 year old birthday girl. Moral of the story - don't buy presents too far ahead of birthday!
Purchased this item in July 2020. Used it in my sons room. The light stopped working recently, replaced but still not working and no other reason why. Did not expect to get less than a years use out of it.
Works great my only problem is that the bulb blew after about a month of use so maybe stock up on some bulbs, other than that great product, looks cool and makes the room pink which is why we bought it, a lot nicer than led strips.
