ZOO MED™ POWERSUN™ Vapor UVB Reptile Lamp
Can't go wrong
The people who wrote bad reviews for the bulb burning out quickly obviously did not fill out the warranty certificate that guarantees the bulb to work for a full year...that's right, if it burns out within a year of purchase they will replace the bulb for free! These are currently (imo) the best uva/uvb combo bulbs on the market, very reliable and emit plenty of uvb even for large reptiles such as tegus. No risk of mbd with these bulbs and proper diet as they are very strong. Please take the time to read the instructions if you are not familiar with uvb lighting, the instructions included were very helpful. These are nice because you can have 1 deep dome lamp instead of 2 separate lamps, and I honestly think going with a $60 bulb once a year is cheaper than replacing the cheap ones all the time. I'll never buy the cheap ones again.

They are dependable and long lasting. Couldn't do without them for my reptiles.

I've had this bulb for 2 weeks now and it has made a huge difference in my baby dragon Sparrow that I rescued from a local pet store. He just handed her to me and told me to keep her. She was barely alive and way smaller than her tank mates that we're killing her. I assume they're from the same clutch. But she couldn't even keep her head up or her eyes open! I had to feed her baby food through a syringe and (I am planning on giving to my best friend when she gets around 6 inches.) there were bite marks everywhere on her and she lost half of her tail! That's why she had a broken arm that is now healed completely. You can see the cast in the left picture of her when she was only 2 weeks old. She was also very grey not in shed. But now thanks to this bulb she actually looks like a citrus! She's so pretty now at 2 months old. I had no problem installing the bulb either. I also bought the zoomed lamp stand with this so I wouldn't risk the bulb going out from the vibrations or from over heating or her getting too hot. It's worth the extra money! I used to buy my bulbs separtely because it was cheaper too. But I really do wish I would've started all my dragons on this bulb in the first place.

I have used this UVB Lightbulb before and it does heat up my 36x24x18 terrarium quite well to a toasty 90-95 degrees F. Although I find that it only lasts for about 5-6 months and cost quite a lot.
