I purchased three 75 watt infrared bulbs for my child's classroom pet. The first two burned out within 48 hours. We have the critters at home over the long weekend and I just put the third light in. We'll see how long it lasts! Don't buy! We have also purchased these bulbs in the past for our turtle, with pretty much the same results.
Went through 4 in less than a year. They are on timers which cycle through 2 heating sessions. Guess being turned on and off more than once a day is too much
All colored lights need to be banned. They are bad for reptiles!!! In the wild would any animal be exposed to colored light?!?! NO Ceramic Heat Emitters are better if the enclosure is dropping below desired temps.
The bulbs put out great heat, but the quality is not there. I ordered my first bulb and it only lasted for about 2 1/2 months. I thought maybe it was just a bad bulb so I bought another and the second one only lasted a month. I used to use these bulbs a lot and went back to them, needless to say I'm very disappointed in the product.
1 hop, 1 skip, 1 jump, & your kids are rocking the house.
Ordered 3 on the 10th of October. I went threw 2 of them on my 3rd one now. I never went threw lights like this before.
It didn’t work at all upon arrival. Tried screwing it into a fixture. No luck. Tried a second lamp and no luck. It’s disappointing.
Bought it in June of 2020, just went out: 4/24/21. My Leo loves it and I had it on day and night. My Leo wasn’t bothered by it at all. Great product and generated plenty of heat.
Very good product for keeping your animals warm, however the products have a really wide variety of life span! Over the last few years I have bought over 15 of these bulbs and their life has gone from a few days to several months. They have a real problem with consistency. For the price you have to pay I would hope for better life span.
My python loved it as soon as I put it in his enclosure and moistened it.
