Zoo Med Halogen 50 Watt
My tortoise Sparky loves this bulb and sits under the lamp for a long time. When he is warm enough he has a walk around and when he cools off he goes back to the lamp. An ideal hotspot for him which tortoises need.

These bulbs last much longer than standard reptile basking bulbs. They also create a nice amount of heat. I had one blow out earlier than expected (in about 1 month) and Zoo Med replaced it without too much hassle.

Great idea, needs improvement.
I'm big on going green & the Halogen Bulbs are supposed to save in energy. Unfortunately the quality isn't the same as incandescent basking bulbs. I switched to these bulbs approx. a year or so ago & I've gone through many more of these in the short amt of time. I'm on my last round & then I'll go back if these do not last longer. I have 5 exotics reptiles that need to be kept hot, the lights are on for 12+ hrs/day & the Halogens last approx. 3-9 months. Where the incandescent last 9-16, on average.

Light did not perform as I expected
I only was only able to get about 700 hours of use out of this lamp
The box informed me that it was good for a average of 2000 hours of usage.
I purchased this halogen light for my other son on November 25, 2011 and it was shipped to me on December -1, 2011
