The Lucky Reptile Halogen Sun LV lamps may be small but they offer a lot of light and heat.
The special reflector effectively focusses light and heat and projects it all to the front. This ensures an excellent light and heat output inside the light sphere which is higher than that of 230V spot lamps of comparable wattage.
These lamps cannot be compared to standard low voltage lamps found in DIY stores, which have so called "cold light" reflectors that project the heat to the back where it is not beneficial for reptiles.
"Cold light" halogen lamps are also not suitable for the Lucky Reptile Thermo Socket LV and Jungle Lamp as they project heat to the back and can cause the luminaires to overheat. Use only Halogen Sun LV for these luminaires.
The Halogen Sun LV lamps have a G5.3 socket and will not only fit the Jungle Lamp and Thermo Socket LV but all other luminaires suitable for MR16 halogen lamps, e.g. the recessed luminaires of the Lucky Reptile Designer Terrariums.
