The Arcadia Reptile 'Basking Solar' range of heating lamps comprised of two different lamps with two very different purposes.
These tried and tested lamps offer great value for money and at a quality that is only to be expected from the Arcadia Reptile brand.
These lamps produce essential supplementary UVA to aid wellbeing and colour vision and should be used alongside a species appropriate Arcadia Reptile UVB system (e.g. a T8 or T5 fluorescent tube)
The 'Basking Solar Spot' lamps have a tight focused beam that will allow for intense heat provision.
The 'Basking Solar Flood' lamps will provide ambient heat to an enclosure as a wide flood source.
Value for money even with Additional PP
Can't put it much simpler I'm afraid - we switched to Arcadia bulbs after struggling with another brand that suffered 'exploding' bulbs. Arcadia seem safe but complete pot luck how long the filaments seem to last. First one - 6 months, 2nd one 1 week.. (!). Good price and service from Internet Reptile though as usual.
Bulb had blown within a week, waste of money. I've had my terrapin for 11 years and this bulb is the worst I've bought in all this time
The previous bulbs I was purchasing kept on blowing after about 1 month, sometimes 1 week but this bulb has lasted so far without blowing, only been 1 week tho
