Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

How warm/hot does this rock achieve?
Answer by ChewyNov 23, 2017
After you plug the Repticare Rock Heater in, it will take several hours to heat up and should feel warm to touch (rock surface temperature between 90-100 F, 32-43 C). Generally, the surface of the Repticare Rock Heater will get between 10-20 F above the ambient terrarium temperature. If you are keeping your terrarium warm (95-105 F) then please unplug your Repticare Rock heater at these temperatures.

Is this safe to use in a plastic terrarium?
Answer by ChewyMay 15, 2021
This heater is safe to be used in a plastic container as long as the container has substrate on the bottom that the rock heater is set on and it is not coming in contact with any of the plastic.

Why is this not recommended for turtles? Not even non-aquatic turtles?
Answer by ChewyApr 30, 2021
This heater is only for use in dry terrariums and indoor use only. It is not recommended for aquatic turtle tanks or very humid terrariums as it should not be submerged or near water.

How long should a rock heater be used before it’s not sanitary?
Answer by ChewyJan 05, 2022
Time between cleanings may vary depending on usage. To clean, first unplug the Repticare Rock Heater® and allow to cool down, (minimum of 20 minutes). Remove from the terrarium and spray heater with Zoo Med’s Wipe Out 1™. Allow Heater to sit for 5 minutes, then gently wipe down all surfaces of the heater with a slightly damp cloth. Allow to dry then return to terrarium and plug back into the power source. Note: If Wipe Out 1™ is not available you can use a 5% bleach solution in water.

Not very good

This heat rock gets a little too hot in my eyes and wish it had come with a setting where u could adjust it lower. But it does make a good rock for my beardie to just lay on while basking under his real lights. So that's what I'm gonna use it for and just won't have it plugged in. Make sure you read the directions and put that definitely in their cold side if you are going to be plugging it in..bc I can see why they warn you about it bc with how hot it gets in their cold side..it could seriously burn your buddy.

This Heat rock

Didn't work!!! Do not recommend. I throughout the box and packaging without trying it. I don't know why I did this, but I did. Do not buy this. I don't blame the site, I blame the product. And didn't even try to contact to return or get a refund.

Dragon loves this

I put this on the floor when she runs around with my birds and rabbit. I put it back in her cage after. Great product. Stays warm. Sturdy. Has some weight to it so it doesn’t move around at all

Should never be used. Ever.

Heat rocks can't be regulated, and are known for regularly lighting on fire. They cause burns to animals, and short circut regularly. Don't buy.

Doesn't work

I used to have a smaller version of this that got really hot and kept my terrium in the 80°s- i ordered this larger one to replace it, and it doesn't even work. I've plugged it into every socket in my house and after sitting for 2 hours at each, it still won't heat up.
