I've never had a problem with this product. I also feel better buying it because it's water resistant. My girl splashes alot, especially at feeding time and I've always worried about droplets hitting the heat lamp. The lasting power is generally ok I find it last about 6 months. Care must be taken when manipulating the bulb or its holding apparatus. A good bump can break the delicate threads inside the bulb. Overall, a well designed and very useful product.
I've ordered the 100W bulb before and not had an issue. Put in a new bulb a week ago and it burned out this morning after less than a full week of use (I turn it off at night). Price is also double when I last ordered so not sure if I will order this bulb again.
Burned out after 1 month of daytime use. Would not recommend.
I've had experiences in the past with these bulbs blowing out well before they should. They work well WHEN they are working. I've had this one for almost 3 months and it blew out today. This happens all the time.
I’ve been using these bulbs for almost 20 years! Chewy’s price is literally the best there is. It lasts a really long time and my turtle loves it and basks all the time. Highly recommend!
Would love to leave a better review, but my turtle is still cold and I need to find a different light.
got splash proof because I'm clumsy and i dropped the light bulb and lamp into the tank the other day while I was cleaning it fell into the water
Bought something similar from a Big Box Pet Store ....paid 3 X the amount and it lasted only 1 month. Chewy has the best prices!
Seems our turtle was due for a new heat lamp.He seems to love basking in this glow!
Perfect for a Red Eared Slider! He never started basking until I gave him this to use!
