Hobby UV Star Tropic UV floodlight - very high output of UV-A and vital UV-B
Especially for reptiles with a very high need for UV radiation, a UV surface emitter is practically mandatory. However, caution is advised, as the light temperature is an important feel-good factor for reptiles. The Hobby Star Tropic UV Terrarium Lamp has been developed in such a way that especially terrarium protégés from tropical forests benefit from its light spectrum. The light in the rainforests is significantly warmer than that to which reptiles are exposed in desert areas, for example. That is why the Hobby Star Tropic UV has a colour temperature of approx. 4000 K, a perfect value for e.g. basilisks, green iguanas or water dragons, species that particularly appreciate the humidity of tropical forests. The light intensity and colour rendering value are also based precisely on these natural conditions. In addition there is the excellent UV production of this terrarium lamp. Vitalising UV-A and UV-B, which is indispensable for the vital D3 synthesis, are produced in exactly the right strength. This also applies to the heat radiation of the Hobby UV Star Tropic, and for this reason you can easily use this UV floodlight as the only terrarium lamp. Sure - if you want to optimally supply a larger terrarium, the use of additional daylight and/or heat lamps may become necessary.
Attention: The UV Star bulbs need an electronic ballast for HID bulbs to operate! We recommend the Bright Control from Lucky Reptile.
The Hobby UV Star Tropic floodlight has an impeccable workmanship and therefore promises a long service life. It is also resistant to any splash water in the terrarium. Hobby UV Star Tropic is particularly attractive due to its low purchase price and, of course, its low wattage, which ensures maximum light output with extremely low consumption values. During the development of this outstanding UV floodlight Hobby paid special attention to a gentle ignition process, which additionally protects the UV lamp from premature defects. If you buy a Hobby UV Star Tropic Terrarium Lamp, you get maximum quality at a minimum price in your home terrarium.
Please note that in order to operate a Hobby UV Star Tropic floodlight, you need a suitable ballast with the appropriate wattage. In addition, you should always operate a UV floodlight with only a robust ceramic socket and the lamp must also be equipped with a protective grid or protective basket so that terrarium animals cannot come into direct contact with the terrarium lamp.
The Hobby UV Star Tropic floodlight is available in two different wattages:
Hobby UV Star Tropic UV floodlight, 50 Watt
