I bought this to use with a heat lamp for my box turtles. The description on the website said it could be used with ceramic lamps, and one of the suggested "frequently bought together" products was a ceramic bulb like the one I use. When I got the lamp, however, the instructions in the box indicate that this lamp cannot be used with ceramic heat bulbs. Buyer beware. I can still use it with a different bulb, but it is not what I needed.

Came all beat up and was not the right size for the length of the bulb it was recommended for!

My iguanas need their lamp!
on Jun 17, 2019
I wanted to love this. Instead after a day I was no longer able to use the lamp do to it not turning on. I’m not sure what’s the problem both bulb and lamp was brand new and ordered together I believe it may be a shortage in the wiring as it turns on for about 5 seconds then turns right back off to never come back on again. My iguanas need their lighting ! What do I do ?
Better to get a hanging lamp
on Dec 22, 2018
This lamp is working well with the porcelain heater that we wanted it for, but in order to use it, we had to fashion a hanger for it out of an old clothes hanger. The clamp mount is not stable and we did not feel comfortable using it with the stand that we purchased. We thought it would have a hanger as an option as well for mounting since the stand specifically recommends this lamp and shows a lamp hanging from the top of the stand. Wrong. If you are trying to find a lamp to hang from the stand, choose the hanging lamp, not the clamp lamp.
It Does The Job But...

I purchased because I needed it for my cat who suffers from kidney disease. I read that Infrared light treatments help with kidney inflammation issues. So Far he loves the treatments because he's always cold & enjoys the heat. The only downside is that the white base still gets extremely hot after just 30 min use so I have to shut it off to cool. Mind you I'm only using a 75 watt bulb though the capacity is for up too 150 bulb. That's the only downside. Otherwise it's great!
They work great

Easy to put together and use. They work great and they are not blowing my bulbs like the lamps with the dimmer switches did.
Works like it should.

Noticed my Musk Turtle is getting out of the water and onto her dock more with this contraption working with a UV A and B light I also purchased. Would recommend.

I bought this lamp to clamp outside of a bird cage. I use with full spectrum 13 watt bulbs which give the birds great lighting without too much heat. The lamps wide ballast allow the light to cover a greater area than regular light fixtures at a more reasonable price. No tools needed to assemble, instructions are easy to follow.
