Best bulb

I started using this bulb after I tried many others. The convenience of only having one bulb is fantastic. I have a 40gal tank with a 100w bulb. I have it connected to a timer. 12 hrs on 12 off. I usually get 14 months out of a bulb. They have a year guarantee. They also have a safety feature that if the bulb is unplugged or gets shut off it wont turn back on for 15min.

Best basking for my aquatic turtles.

This lamp produces not only UVB, but also UVA and heat, which helps with circulation, thus helping my turtles grow healthy shells that shed normally. It is an all in one lamp!

Best bulb ever

I love these bulbs and so do all my reptiles. When used correctly these bulbs can help stop MBD from getting worse. Recommended by my vet and local rescues. I stand by these but you must follow directions on the box. I've used only these for over 12 years I change the bulb every 6 to 8 months

1/2 Works

I Ordered 2 bulbs, first one worked great. Second one didn't work at all. Trying to get a refund now.

1/2 worked

1 of the 2 bulbs was dead on arrival. When they do work, they're good, but it seems that they have some major quality control issues or they break in shipping too easily.

burned out immediately, huge waste of money

Judging by the reviews, i knew this would be a risk but it seems to be the only UVA/UVB bulb on this site. Welp, i plugged it in and it worked fine. I unplugged it and tried it in a different outlet and it never turned back on. The lamp im using is https://www.chewy.com/flukers-ceramic-clamp-lamp-85-in/dp/129135 which recommends bulbs under 150watt, but no other recommendation. So, idk if this is an issue on my end by not picking the right equipment but i followed all instructions provided and still ended up wasting $40
