Be careful of these.  They may not be true bubblers filled with methyl chloride.  They're releasing a new "bubbling effect" light this year.  It contains a color changing LED that's run on low voltage.  The color light going up the tube changes, that's all.  The tube is filled with a gel that contains pre-formed bubbles; hence the name "bubbling effect". 

So be sure to check these out before purchasing.  They may look nice, but if you look closely, where's the heat source to produce the bubbles? Right? 

I think these might be the color LED changing "bubble effect" lights we're seeing appear in the states right now.

If you do find them, please examine them closely and let us know. 

Thanks - and happy lighting!
