    Listen to the other reviews

    By Patty on Dec 27, 2021

    I thought maybe everyone else just got lemons and that I'd give this a try. Nope, it burned out within 5 days of installation. Turned it off one night and it never turned back on again. They should pull this product from the shelves. It's also not very warm under the bulb.

    Stopped working after 5 minutes

    By kittykait on Nov 21, 2021

    I don’t usually write reviews, but I took a chance on this bulb because it had quite a few positive reviews in between the few that said they don’t last. But unfortunately it stopped working after like 5 minutes?? I even took it out and tried it in a different dome I had, and both were suited for the wattage (I only bought the 80 watt anyway). This bulb is not worth the price since it sounds like half the bulbs they send out are just defective.

    Blown in 5 days

    By TuckerTheTurtlesHooman on Oct 11, 2021

    I must admit, my turtle loved this bulb. He basks often with it. However 5 days later, i unclamped my clamp light fixture, clicked the switch off, then on BUT low and behold, it never turned back on. Summary: The bulb is great but blew in 5 days. Its too expensive for such a short life span.

    awesome thanks

    By Liam on Dec 10, 2021

    Very great bulb If you shut it off it will not turn on immediately because it has a feature so that it doesn’t cause a fire

    Works... kind of

    By LooLoo on Jun 24, 2021

    I got this bulb for my leopard gecko, and while it does work well for him when it's on it takes a lot of hassle every morning to get it on. I have a double dome for a day and night bulb and switch between them everyday. The night bulb I have works fine, hit a switch and it's on/off. For this bulb, I have to unscrew it then screw it back in just right for it to switch on and if I switch it off for any reason throughout the day I have to do the same thing every time for it to come back on. I know it isn't the dome because I've tried other bulbs in the exact same spot and they work perfectly fine. I want to give this another try because it's one of the few bulbs that really work well for him when I got this bulb for my leopard gecko, and while it does work well for him when it's on it takes a lot of hassle every morning to get it on.

    I want my money back.

    By Ilsovs777 on Jul 15, 2021

    I’ve now spent $100 in the last month buying this bulb for my beardie. The first one blew out in 2 weeks. The second was just screwed in this morning and now doesn’t work. Never had an issue with any other bulb. Smh. Not cool.

    Works great

    By Repashy on Apr 7, 2021

    This bulb works great. It doubles as a basking bulb and a UVB bulb. My blue tongue skink loves laying under it and soaking up all the sun and heat.

    Great Bulb

    By Elijah on Feb 25, 2021

    I hear a lot of complaints about this item, but I’ve never had an issue with it. These bulbs last me about 7-8 months and provide a perfect combination of heat and light for my chameleon :)

    What I needed

    By Animallover on Jan 12, 2021

    This is the bulb that my vet recommended for my tortoise. Although it's very expensive for just one light bulb, it was cheaper here than any of my local pet stores. I like that there is a bigger selection of things here on Chewy that i can't find in the pet store.

    Terrible Bulb

    By Lame on Feb 14, 2021

    I literally had this bulb in for less than one day, and it has already blown out. Worked great for the 1 hour it was on, though!
