I have owned bearded dragons for over 20 years. I've always used this heating pad on the outside underneath of my tanks. It works great but the adhesive is terrible and needs upgrading. Nevertheless i tape it to the underneath with heating tape. Also for anyone who wants to know bearded dragons most certainly can feel heat on their belly. It is a huge falsehood that they can't. They will not get burned by using heating pads or heating rocks. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that ppl honestly believe this falsehood. They are native to Australia which has a very hot climate and has a lot of sand that gets extremely hot. For anyone to believe a bearded dragon that's native to an extremely hot climated country can't feel the burning hot sand and ground on their bellies seriously needs to educate themselves! JS! If that were the case there would be thousands even millions of unalived burned bellied bearded dragons all over Australia! Please do your research before getting any reptile actually any animal. Because your lack of knowledge could be detrimental to your animals health and well being! Anyways i highly recommend this brand's heating pads, heating and UV lights, lamps thermometers and timers. They work great and are priced well!
We just opened the package and put it on the bottom of the enclosure. It started falling minutes after applying it. Had to use duct tape, but still partially falls off. Heating is good.
This heating pad is junk. It won't stick to the bottom of the aquarium. I had a small one on the other end of my large glass aquarium and it stuck for over 12 years..... I decided to get a larger pad and put it on the other end of the cage and retire the smaller, old pad. But it's winter and I go in and find the heating pad laying in the bottom of the aquarium stand. Sometimes I just press on it for good measure, but it always comes unstuck. I think it's just the sticky isn't sticky enough.
Only negative thing is that the self adhesive came off in less then 2 months, but I know that by reading reviews. Ducktape to the rescue. By my queen Liz loves hers.
Have gone through 2 and they stick fine for a few wks then they fall off. I put them back on but a few days later they fall off again
Bearded dragons are not to be heated from the under side because they cannot feel heat on their bellies and they can end up badly burning them selves or cooking them selves alive!
I'm flabbergasted by this. It lost stick to the glass the second day and I had to duct tape it to the glass. I couldn't get another one at the time and I'm deeply upset by how awful the adhesive just doesn't work. Fire hazard!! It shouldn't be getting that hot to burn/melt the tape.
Have gone through 3 of these now.... They stick and work fine for the first week or so, and then inevitably begin to fall off and refuse to stick. PATHETIC EXCUSE for a 'quality product'...
Received this heater very quickly. However, as other reviewers said, the heater didn't work when I received it. The good news is I e-mailed the company and they responded fast and sent me another one that worked perfectly. I would give them a 5 star rating for the product if the first one worked as well as the second one.
This is a great product. Have used them for years with no issues. Always used with a thermostat of course. They came in packaged nicely and very quickly. The only issue I had was none of these came with the spacers for the tank. I don’t know if they quit doing that but it was a nice addition to keep the cord safe.
