Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5
Rated 1 out of 5 by heatingbulb Lasted only a little over a week. Have bought several from Petsmart and they never last. I have several reptiles and I will not be getting my heating bulbs from petsmart again. In researching i came across several forums with the same problems.

STAY AWAY!!This bulb is worthless. i originally purchased two about 2 weeks ago to add a little extra heat at night for my ball python during the cold snap we have been having here lately(bought one as a backup just in case). It was working well at first, added just enough heat to keep her warm side appropriate temps, and just enough of a glow to see her roaming around during her peak activity. The first bulb burned out in 6 days, a total of maybe 75 hours usage. I was hoping it was a fluke.
This second bulb really took the cake though. I have used it 5 times total(again, only at night). MAYBE 50 hours max. This morning I come downstairs and no infrared over snake habitat. Completely Burned out.
I tried to do some troubleshooting, so I put another bulb in the lamp and turned it on, it was fine, so nothing wrong with the lamp. I have used other bulbs with the lamp with no issues, getting a lot of use from them, but not these.
I have the appropriate sized bulb and wattage for the lamp, so i am not overloading.
These bulbs are useless. Any other brand of bulb that I use will last a long time. I guess that's what i get for trying to save a few bucks instead of going with tried and true.
I should have listened to the other independent reviews that I read online and stayed away. Won't make this mistake again.
