(Ceramic Heat Emitter) Bulbs - 60w, 100w, 150w, 200w, 250w
have been used in the reptile world for years. The benefit of
a non light-emitting heat source is important when trying not
to alter the reptiles day and night cycles. Keeping a bright light
on 24/7 can deprive a reptile of sleep and cause them to stress.
have these available in 60 watt, 100 watt 150 watt, 200 watt and
250 watt. We use several brands of CHE bulbs like Zoo Med, Zilla,
and Exo Terra. The bulb you receive could be any of these brands,
or one of the generic brands we also carry. Most likely it will
be a name brand, but we cannot guarantee what brand you will receive.
We just purchase which ever brand is on sale and that's how we
can keep our prices so low.
DESIGN: These bulbs are resist to humid environments. They
have a waterproof design which allow them to work effectively
in a moist enviromnent without buming out or breaking. So you
don't need to worry about accidently getting the bulb wet when
misting the enclosure.
LIFE: These bulbs are rated for 10,000+ hours. That's over
a year if used 24/7. We are going on 4.5 years with one of these
bulbs that we put outside for Mojo, our backyard-dwelling Sulcata
HEAT: Ceramic heat emitters use infrared rays (just like the
sun) to transmit surface heat to your reptile and to the surfaces
in the enclosure. You will not see a drastic increase in ambient
temperature, but you will notice that any surface under the bulb
will be nice and toasty. Use caution when using the bulb for the
first time as the surface of the bulb can reach 450 degrees F
or hotter. Make sure there is plenty of distance between the bulb
and your reptile. Also, never place a CHE bulb inside the enclosure
if there is any chance the reptile can climb onto the bulb. The
reptile could be severely burned.
these bulbs get so hot (over 450 degrees F) they must be used
with a ceramic/porcelain base lamp. These bulbs are not very tall
and will easily fit into a small dome clamp light.
