Floodlight for the rainforest terrarium: LUCKY REPTILE BRIGHT SUN UV JUNGLE FLOOD! Incredible light output with minimal power consumption.
Item number RK0821A
If you're wondering about the addition of "Flood" to the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood, you can rest assured. This has nothing to do with a flood in the sense of water floods. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood simply has a special reflector that increases the beam angle to 70°. This wide beam angle of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood ensures that light and warmth are not emitted in a concentrated focus with this fantastic terrarium lamp. On the contrary: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood floods your terrarium with light in the truest sense of the word! The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is the first choice for illuminating terrariums that do not require local heat and sunlight. Many reptiles avoid direct sunlight - chameleons, geckos and some iguana species are good examples. Here the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is an ingenious light source to create the right light throughout the terrarium. Locally, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood's light output and UV output are weaker than those of the conventional version, but for all reptiles where the UV output has to be offered a little less punctiform but rather distributed, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is definitely suitable as the only terrarium lamp! If you want to illuminate particularly large terrariums or if you care for all reptiles with an increased UV requirement (turtles, bearded dragons or iguanas), it is recommended to additionally use a conventional version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV. A perfect combination for terrarium lighting: While the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood provides good overall illumination in the terrarium, the normal Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV creates local sun islands that your terrarium protégés can visit if necessary. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is available in two versions: 70 Watt and 150 Watt. The extremely powerful 150-watt version is a tailor-made solution for large terrariums - for example, several green iguanas can be adequately supplied in one terrarium.
Please note: The Bright Sun must be operated with a suitable ballast (e.g. Bright Control Pro 3).
You can rotate it as you like, but the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV series is one of the great revolutions in terrarium lighting. No other terrarium lamp has contributed so to a better, more species-appropriate and also more efficient lighting of terrariums. This also applies to the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood combines everything healthy reptiles need in terms of lighting: Light, UV radiation and heat. Well, you'll say, that's what other terrarium lamps can do and they're even cheaper. Looks like a legitimate objection, but one of the revolutionary features of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is that it is difficult to compare it with other terrarium lamps. One of the reasons for this is the incredibly high performance with a very low power consumption. And that means: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood in the 70 Watt version surpasses the heat and UV output of conventional 160 Watt terrarium lamps many times over. And as far as light intensity is concerned, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood creates values in the terrarium that have never been achieved before. In numbers: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood surpasses a comparable 160-watt terrarium lamp by a factor of five! The effective light output of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is 10 times as high for the same power consumption. Here you can clearly say: Incredibly energy-efficient and with regard to power consumption for terrarium lighting a real energy-saving miracle that pays for itself quickly. By the way: If you imagine the power of the 150 watt version now, you can imagine the flood of light that spreads here even in large terrariums.
Very important: With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood light values are possible that otherwise only real sunlight could offer. In this discipline the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is a lonely top class. Sunny days produce light intensities of 100,000 lux and more in nature. On the other hand, the 10,000 lux, which normal UV mixed light emitters for terrariums can radiate to the maximum, seem rather weak. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood definitely shows the way here. It generates a light output of 60,000 (!) lux at a distance of 30 cm at a power of 70 watts. An ingenious value that comes close to real sunlight. With the 150-watt version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood, at a distance of 50 cm this is an incredible 67,000 (!) lux - this is simply record breaking. If you want to know how this affects your reptiles, then we'd best explain it this way: A customer who used the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV for the first time wrote to us: "Unbelievable, my animals go off like that, it's not normal! He was talking about something else. If you illuminate your terrarium with a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood, you simulate real sunlight and create a natural condition! You can imagine this as if you had been sitting for many months in a sparsely lit cellar room and could then take a walk on a meadow on a beautiful, sunny spring day. And this is how the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood works on your terrarium protection birds! What our customer perceived as "leaving" is in reality nothing more than natural behaviour in light conditions that are optimal for reptiles. And how this healthy, real light works, you can also tell by the fact that you will see your reptiles in natural, fantastic colours that you have never seen before. In addition, the natural behaviour of reptiles is stimulated, vitality increases dramatically and the sum of the positive effects on health is enormous.
How does this incredible performance of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood come about? That's no secret, because the key lies in the unparalleled efficiency of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood. The utilization of the supplied energy is one of the major plus points. Because: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood manages to convert almost all the supplied energy directly into light. Conventional terrarium lamps often don't even manage 5 %! That means: 95 % (!) of the energy is converted into heat - an incredible loss, which you pay dearly! This is also noticeable in the terrarium through rapidly rising temperatures. Of course, this is not always undesirable, but it is hardly possible to create a temperature gradient that meets the needs of reptiles. Don't forget: reptiles also seek warm or cooler places in their natural habitats, depending on their needs. And here lies another strength of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood: The low waste heat of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood in the terrarium makes it possible to use this fantastic terrarium lamp also in smaller terrariums (from a size of 60 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm)! With a conventional UV lamp of this power class absolutely impossible, since the heat development would be simply too high.
The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is ideal for supplying reptiles from rainforest regions with light and warmth in a species-appropriate way. Intensive tests have shown that these reptiles feel particularly at home at a colour temperature of 4000 K. The colour temperature of these reptiles is very high. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood brings exactly this colour temperature, and it has been designed to reproduce the light spectrum that prevails in such forest areas. Water agamas, iguanas and other rainforest dwellers are well supplied with the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood. UV-A and UV-B radiation are added in perfectly balanced proportions and the necessary heat is also emitted. Combined with the unprecedented light intensity, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood really is a small sun in your terrarium!
In order to estimate the economic efficiency of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood correctly, one fact must not be neglected under any circumstances, namely the service life of this terrarium lamp. More than 6000 (!) hours is an incredible operating time and another argument for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood. No other terrarium UV lamp can even come close to this. In concrete terms, this means that a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood must only be replaced after approx. 1 year. If we compare this with conventional UV lamps, this advantage becomes even clearer. Because: With many of these supposedly cheaper light media, the UV output decreases already after a few weeks to such an extent that one would have to replace these terrarium lamps already after 3 months. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood brings it here to four times the lifespan. And now we can do the math again: We have here the necessary ballast for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood, which you only have to buy once and which lasts almost forever, and the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood you only have to change once a year. In addition, there is the unbelievable power saving, because with only 70 watts of power we achieve a five times higher light output than with any conventional UV surface emitter with 160 watts. So: halved electricity costs with five times more light in the terrarium. Now you can answer yourself why the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is better and much cheaper.
Not unimportant: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is available in the normal 70 Watt version as well as in a 150 Watt version - a true alternator in the terrarium. Who needs so much light in the terrarium, one might think. But: If you think of high terrariums, for example, where distances of more than one meter have to be bridged, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood with 150 watts makes a lot of sense. Because: the 150 watt output is still effective even at a distance of 120 cm - unbelievable and unique!
Reptile Cosmos Service: Interesting and practical information about the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood
- The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood cannot be used without a suitable ballast. We recommend an original ballast from Lucky Reptile. The Lucky Reptile Bright Control ballast has been designed exactly for the demands of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood - a dynamic duo!
- Careful, please: Never use the powerful Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood with an unsuitable lamp socket. Cheap metal frames or plastic frames are exactly the wrong choice here, because such frames melt through quickly - this is an explosive source of danger in the terrarium. Do not take such risks and immediately decide on a suitable ceramic frame! Highly recommended: The perfect Thermo Socket Plus reflector set with practical plug connection. Tailor-made for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood! No more adventurous installations in the terrarium - simply maximum security with plug-and-play simplicity.
- Of course, you can continue to use existing cabling and installations in the terrarium if you retrofit them to operate the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood. It is important that suitable cables are used which can withstand the high loads during ignition of the powerful Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood.
- For smaller terrariums (size approx. 60 cm x 50 cm x 50 cm) the 70 Watt version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood can be used without hesitation - normal terrarium conditions with usable ventilation are assumed. Overheating of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is excluded. And if you have a large terrarium to supply, the 150-watt version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood is the lamp of choice anyway.
The following table shows you once again that the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood hardly influences the ambient temperature in the terrarium, because the terrarium lamp is designed in such a way that the heat is bundled in the direct beam area of the light. The heat is therefore directed directly downwards and is not lost upwards or to the sides with the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood, as is the case with most UV lamps. In this way, the high temperature in the light focus is achieved, which with a 70 Watt Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle Flood corresponds to that of a conventional 160 Watt terrarium UV lamp.
|Bright Sun Flood Jungle 70 Watt||approx. 70°C||approx. 52°C||approx. 38°C||approx. 35°C||n.a.|
|Bright Sun Flood Jungle 150 Watt||n.a.||approx. 70°C||n.a.||approx. 48°C||approx. 35°C|
Keep the correct distances between the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle 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 UV Jungle after production. These individual values are noted with a corresponding sticker on the lamp. What's that good for? It's simple: This information will help you ensure the exact right distance between the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle and your reptiles. This distance can be between 20 and 70 cm for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle, 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 damages of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle, because here overheating would threaten! 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.
