Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood
If the name Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood might confuse you at first, the difference to the other Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Terrarium Lamps is explained briefly. In this case it is the term "flood" that makes the difference. Don't worry, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is not a lamp designed to dry flooded terrariums - Flood stands for a special characteristic of the reflector of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood has a large 70° beam angle, so it scatters the light in the terrarium very strongly - it floods the whole terrarium with light, so to speak. You already know it: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is ideal for perfectly illuminating terrariums in which no local heat and sun places are required. Some reptiles tend to avoid direct sunlight - for example chameleons, geckos and some agama species. Here the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is mainly used to create the right light in the entire terrarium - but the light output and also the UV output are naturally weaker at certain points. However, the total output remains, it is only distributed over a larger area. The flood variant is therefore not suitable for local sun sites. However: For all reptiles with a medium UV requirement the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is absolutely suitable as the only terrarium lamp! For large terrariums and for all reptiles with an increased UV requirement (turtles, bearded dragons or iguanas) a conventional version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV should also be used. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood provides healthy reptile daylight and all-encompassing illumination, while the normal Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV allows you to create local sun islands to visit your reptiles as needed. Please observe: The Bright Sun must be operated with a suitable ballast (e.g. Bright Control Pro 3).
One of the greatest revolutions in terrarium lighting in recent years has undoubtedly been achieved by Lucky Reptile with the Bright Sun UV series. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood combines everything reptiles really need: Light, UV radiation and sufficient heat. Of course, other terrarium lamps can do the same and most of them are much cheaper. But that's only true at first glance, because what's really revolutionary about the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is its unbelievably high performance and power consumption, which is simply ridiculously low in comparison. What does that mean exactly? Quite simple and impressive: A Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood in the 70 Watt version clearly beats the heat and UV output of a conventional 160 Watt terrarium lamp! The light intensity of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood achieves values that were previously completely unknown in terrarium lighting. Here the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood beats comparable 160 watt terrarium lamps fivefold! We'll recalculate at this point: This means that, in terms of effective light output, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood delivers 10 times more output with the same power consumption. This can now be called very energy efficient or simply sensational - which comes closer to the truth with the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood. For the power consumption of the terrarium lighting there is of course an unbelievable saving potential.
If you really want to compare the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood with other terrarium bulbs, you need to consider one thing: With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood, light values are possible that otherwise only real sunlight can offer. No other terrarium lamp can do that. Because on sunny days, light intensities of 100,000 lux and more can occur in nature. Our reptiles are accustomed to such light intensities in natural habitats. On the other hand, the 10,000 lux that a normal UV mixed light lamp can produce to the maximum are simply puny! And nobody should claim that there is no more, because that disproves the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood impressively! With an output of only 70 watts, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood generates a light output of 70,000 (!) lux at a distance of 30 cm. This is an incomparable value and comes very close to the sunlight - outstanding for a terrarium radiator and definitely a record. What good will that do for your reptiles? Quite simple: Anyone who uses a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood for the first time will be able to confirm it: In your terrarium the sun rises for the very first time! An enthusiastic customer wrote to us: "Unbelievable, my animals go off like that, it's not normal!" But that should mean something different, because by using the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood as terrarium lighting, the reptiles are created in a quasi-natural state. Imagine being locked up for months in a dimly lit room without windows and then walking in a sunny park on a beautiful spring day. This is exactly how the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood works on your terrarium animals! This observed "going off" is nothing other than the natural behaviour of your reptiles in sun-like light conditions. And you can definitely see that: Through the spectrum of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood reptiles shine in their natural and real colors! You'll definitely be amazed at building blocks. In addition, the natural behaviour is stimulated, the vitality of reptiles increases drastically and the positive effects on the general health of terrarium animals should also be mentioned.
How can we explain the enormous increase in performance of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood? Well, the real "secret" is to be found in the incomparable efficiency. Because: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood converts almost all the energy supplied into light. Please have a look at the comparison of the conventional terrarium lamps! Here up to 95 (!) % of the energy is lost in the form of heat - in the terrarium this is noticeable by rising temperatures. Even if this is generally not undesirable, it makes it more difficult to establish a temperature gradient suitable for reptiles. However, this is necessary, because reptiles also choose their preferred heat spots in the wild according to their needs. It is therefore counterproductive to transform the entire terrarium into an evenly warm sauna. And this is where the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood plays another trump card: The low waste heat of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood in the terrarium allows the use of this ingenious terrarium lamp also in smaller terrariums (from 60 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm). This would be absolutely impossible with conventional UV lamps of this power class.
For which reptiles is the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood recommended? We only have to take a closer look at the light properties of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood. The terrarium lamp is designed in such a way that it corresponds to the light spectrum prevailing in desert regions. Tests have shown that a colour temperature of 6000 K is optimal and is perceived as pleasant by reptiles living in deserts. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood achieves just these values and also provides UV-A and UV-B radiation in a perfectly balanced ratio - it also provides the necessary basic heat. Together with the incredible light intensity the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is a real sun in your terrarium!
We had already mentioned the economic efficiency of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood, but here one essential aspect was missing: the above-average life expectancy of this fantastic terrarium lamp. And also in this discipline the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is definitely record-breaking: More than 6000 (!) hours operating time are simply phenomenal and no other UV lamp scratches even this brand. Only after about 1 year the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood should be replaced. Top class! If we compare this with conventional UV lamps, it is even clearer how economical the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is. Because: With comparable UV lamps, the UV output drops so significantly after only a few weeks of operation that such terrarium lamps would have to be replaced after only 3 months. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood has four times the lifespan! Let's do the math again: The ballast needed to operate the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood is a once-in-a-lifetime purchase and the lamp itself is changed only once a year. In addition we count the unbelievable energy saving, because: With an output of only 70 watts, we achieve a five times higher light output in the terrarium than with the normal UV surface emitters with 160 watts. Means: Halve electricity costs and five times more light in the terrarium. Actually, it is not only clear to mathematical artists which terrarium lighting you can use to drive better and cheaper. One should not only pay attention to the pure purchase price!

- The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood can also perform well in smaller terrariums (minimum size approx. 60 cm x 50 cm x 50 cm). Overheating cannot occur here if used properly. And the powerful Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood feels at home in large terrariums anyway.
With the following table we would like to show you that the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood hardly influences the ambient temperature in your terrarium. The terrarium lamp is designed in such a way that all radiated heat is focused in the direct beam area of the light. This means that the heat is directed directly downwards. Advantage: With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood no heat is lost upwards or sideways, as is the case with many conventional lamps. The result is the particularly high temperature in the light focus, which in the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert Flood with 70 Watt corresponds to the temperature of a conventional 160 Watt terrarium UV lamp. Only with significantly reduced power consumption.

Keep the correct distances between the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun and your reptiles:
This is unique in the field of terrarium lighting: Lucky Reptile measures the UV output of each individual Lucky Reptile Bright Sun after production. These individual values are noted with a corresponding sticker on the lamp. What's that good for? It's simple: this information helps you to ensure the exact distance between the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun and your reptiles. This distance can be between 20 and 70 cm for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun, depending on the type of terrarium animals and the wattage of the lamp. The minimum distance must be kept, because otherwise you would not only endanger the health of your terrarium animals, but you would also have to accept damage to the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun, because overheating would threaten here! The maximum distance, by the way, indicates the distance at which the UV radiation is still sufficiently high for your reptiles to receive the correct, healthy dose.

**The distance from the lower edge of the lamp to the animal is measured. Attention, illuminants and lampholder together have a height of approx. 20 cm, which you should include. With a 60 cm high terrarium, the distance from the lower edge of the light source to the animal is therefore approx. 40 (calculated without ground). At the optimum distance, light, UV values and heat are in the perfect range for reptiles.
