Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B
If you don't want to leave anything to chance when it comes to the UV supply of your reptiles, the Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B is definitely on the safe side. Because: Particularly with the economical compact lamps in the terrarium, the UV emission is usually inadequate and many of the alleged cheap lamps produce after only a few weeks hardly any measurable UV-B emission. For reptiles in a desert terrarium it is simply a catastrophe and not acceptable when it comes to the healthy development of reptiles. The Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B clearly shows how powerful an energy-saving terrarium lamp can be! The Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B does not go to its knees in the important UV range and permanently provides 30% UV-A and 8% real and measurable UV-B radiation. These are conditions under which desert dwellers like Bearded Dragons can develop splendidly and species-appropriately! And all this with consumption figures that are almost unbelievable. 23 watts of power consumption are enough for this fantastic terrarium lamp to provide a light intensity you can't even dream of with supposedly cheap lamps.
The Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B brings, besides its impressive UV qualities, values in the daylight range that you can no longer get your mouth closed with amazement. With a light intensity of 650 lm, a perfect colour temperature at 7200 K and a colour rendering that can impress with a value of 83 Ra for an energy-saving compact lamp, the Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B provides the perfect terrarium light in all areas of the spectrum important for reptiles. All this, of course, without ballast, which is already integrated in this ingenious terrarium lamp. With the Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B you can be sure that your reptiles get the amount of UV-A and UV-B they need. UV-A is the key to more vitality, a significantly improved appetite and a higher willingness to mate in reptiles, while UV-B is essential for vitamin D3 synthesis, which ensures that sufficient calcium is stored in the skeleton of terrarium animals. Only in this way can rickets and other deficiency diseases be effectively prevented! You see: With the Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B your reptiles are well supplied. You don't need a special lamp socket to operate this highly efficient energy-saving lamp - this terrarium lamp works with every E27 standard socket.
To give you a practical idea of the Hobby UV Compact Desert 8% UV-B in terms of the actually measurable irradiance, we have summarised the results of a comparative test of various UV compact lamps for you. We find the result highly impressive:

All measurements were carried out under realistic conditions in the terrarium and after 7 hours of operation. The measurements were carried out at a 90° angle to the lampholder in the middle of the respective illuminant, as the spotlights are mounted horizontally and not vertically in the terrarium. A solar meter version 6.2 was used as the measuring device.
