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.

Works as Expected

Great light, produces plenty of heat. It is super bright though so you need to get a different light at night.

Amazing how much heat this little bulb creates.

This has proven to be perfect for my 29 gallon anole terrarium (anoles coming soon.) It uses less energy than other heat bulbs. Keeps the temperature just where I want it, with a hot spot of about 90 F in the basking area (about 4-5 in. below lamp, on branches), and an ambient of about 72 F on the cool side. The lid is mostly glass, so does trap heat, and the lamp is in the enclosure. It is caged to prevent direct contact, as contact with the mini dome in which it resides would likely cause a burn to the reptile.

Convenient and space-saving

Got these because they pair with the low-profile overhead lighting/heating for reptile tanks. They're super easy to install and do a great job heating the tank while not taking up a ton of space! Much less clunky than the traditional overhead lamps.

Best price

I love the mini halogen lamps compared to standard bulbs. Chewy has the best price around for these.

Not very hot

The light didn't affect the tank temperature in any meaningful way.

Hot! Hot! Hot!

I bought this little bulb to replace the 100watt basking bulb for my bearded dragon. The 100watt ZooMed bulb kept his platform at a toasty 100°F. I plugged this little guy in and the platform quickly raised in excess of 150°f! So effective at half the power! Since I am not in the mindset of cooking my dragon, I'm switching it out for the 25watt version. Even better! Can I get a ceramic version for my nocturnal babies now? ❤️

Doesn't get hot enough

Bought for my beardie, only gets up to around 95 when he needs 110. So I had to grt a second light. May be decent for other reptiles

Works great with the Pro Sol fixtures

These bulbs work great and were much strong than I was expecting. I actually had to order more of the lower wattage for one of my enclosures. Worked out well though since I have multiple enclosures. Also nicer on the power bill than the higher wattage big heat bulbs.

It worked!!

I put it in the correct fixture, turned it on and it worked as advertised.
