Halogen bulbs should not be touched with bare hands as the oils of the skin will significantly shorten the life of the bulb or cause it to shatter.
Idk why everyone’s burns out after a week, I’ve never not have a bulb last me at least 6 month. I’ve actually had an 80w that lasted like 2 years and was used on my snake and leopard gecko, so it was switched over a lot.
I bought the 150 W version and in less than 1 month it has already burnt out - super disappointing. I ended up having to put in the 100 W bulb from the other brand which is quite old but still going strong but my Beardie really needs 150 W so I'll probably have to order a new 150 W but I'm not sure if I just got a bad bulb or if this brand is garbage where it's the first time using it.
Like many of the other reviews, these bulbs just burn out too fast. I feel like i am spending $20 every couple of weeks on light bulbs. ugh
I've only had this a week and it totally cracked and broke this morning after being on for a couple hours. It's winter and super cold right now. I need heat more than ever and have to wait for shipping and these are not cheap! I am so upset right now. I don't live in a huge city to just drive and pick up a new one. Of course they won't let me upload a photo lol
I bought one of these and it burnt out in a week so they sent me a replacement and it just went out again a week later! Horrible bulbs and for almost 30 bucks each they should be better. Nobody can afford a $30 bulb every week.
Burnt out too quickly (within a few weeks). I don't like it and wouldn't recommend.
2 weeks after the bulb arrived it has already blown out.
I have nothing but great experiences and saved sone money meanwhile ...I will continue to use them to get my pets supplies from them.
This bulb was great for the whole 18 days that it worked. It’s on a recommended dimmer and off at night but still already stopped working today. It was working one second and blew the next
I ordered this 100w thinking the 75w wasn't enough as I didn't have it dimmed to maintain temps. 2-3 weeks after having to dim slightly to maintain temps with the 100w, it is 10° too cool and not dimmed at all. I was hoping the quality of the bulb was reflected in the price and branding, unfortunately not the case.
