Product Description

Product Description

The Exo Terra Solar Glo is a self ballasted mercury vapour reptile bulb that provides the benefits of natural sunlight, which is one of the most important aspects in keeping reptiles healthy. The Exo Terra Solar Glo is the choice of professional breeders as it provides the proper balance of ultraviolet light (including UVA and UVB), visual light and infrared light (heat), in one easy-to-install bulb. The Exo Terra Solar Glo is a full spectrum light with carefully tuned peaks to ensure appetite, activity, brilliant colours and optimal calcium absorption through Vitamin D3 production. These bulbs are highly susceptible to break if moved when in use, please keep in mind that they are very fragile. Also do ensure you are using the correct fittings and that the vivarium is adequately ventilated, as this again can cause problems with the life-span of the bulb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for my tortoise table. 15 Mar 2011
By grace
Good points:

~ Really bright
~ Maintains good constant basking temp of 32 degrees at 12 inches high
~ Safety overheat shut-off feature
~ Emits no annoying buzzing noises
~ Is used without an expensive thermostat
~ Less cables/leads compared to my old separate heat/UV setup
~ I think it uses less electricity than the old separate bulbs
~ Happy tortoise

Bad points:

~ Tortoise table is near my sofa and I am blinded every time I look at it.
~ Tortoise confused: forgot it was daytime when she was at the other end of the table, to i had to put a normal light that end.

Review:

Having been reading up on good chelonian husbandry online, I decided it was time to get rid of the old stuffy vivarium and make my lovely tort a tortoise table. She is much happier now. She has much more space to run around (well its more like ambling really) and the temperatures are now exactly as I have read they should be (20 degrees cool end, 32 degrees basking spot).

I previously had a separate heat bulb, linked up to a Habistat Dimming Thermostat, and a Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB 18in (15W) Reptile Tube Light linked to an Arcadia Dry Vivarium UV Tube Controller 25/30W. While I found these to be quite adequate for the small vivarium, I wanted something more appropriate for a tortoise table.

2.0 out of 5 stars Failed after one month 9 April 2013
By Nsb103
Verified Purchase
On a 12 hr per day timer my bulb lasted just one month. I am returning it and trying a replacement, but not impressed so far.

Edit:

OK, It is about one month later and the replacement has just failed too. Same 12 hr per day set up, two bulbs have now failed after 1 month. This bulb is the cheapest option, but from my own experience the reason for that is it being an inferior product. Refunds through Amazon are no particular problem, so if you want free bulbs this is the product for you. If you want reliable light for your animal, pay a little more for a superior product. I will be buying an arcadia bulb, since my experience of them is that they last at least six months.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underneath the lamplight
A good combination bulb. Pity it's so expensive and WATCH OUT if it gets dropped! My previous one exploded with a bang into tiny fragments.

Not durable, and far too expensive to last just five week. Not at all happy with this product and just a couple of days outside the return window is infuriating.
