Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle
If you can talk about real breakthroughs in the lighting of terrariums in recent years, then the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV series is definitely an issue. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle is an outstanding example of this. This terrarium lamp unites everything that reptiles need: Light, UV radiation and heat. What's so special about it, one might ask. Other terrarium lamps can do that as well and most of them are much cheaper. That may seem true at first glance, but the revolutionary thing about the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle is its incredibly high performance and ridiculously low power consumption! That is, concretely? Well, that means that a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle in the 70 Watt version simply puts the heat and UV output of a comparable 160 Watt terrarium lamp in the shade! And that's not all. As far as light intensity is concerned, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle achieves values that have never been achieved before. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle beats a comparable 160-watt terrarium lamp in this discipline fivefold! Shall we do a quick check? The bottom line is that the effective light output of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle is 10 times as high for the same power consumption. This is not only incredibly energy-efficient, it is sensational, and there is enormous potential for saving electricity for the terrarium lighting.
Please note: The Bright Sun must be operated with a suitable ballast (e.g. Bright Control Pro 3).
And everyone who wants to compare the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle with conventional terrarium lamps should know one thing: With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle, for the first time ever light values are possible that otherwise only real sunlight can offer. On sunny days, light intensities of 100,000 lux and more occur in nature. This is what our reptiles are used to in natural habitats. How infinitely pathetic are the 10,000 lux that a conventional UV mixed light lamp can produce to the maximum? The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle shows in an impressive way that a lot more is possible. With an output of 70 watts, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle produces a light output of 70,000 (!) lux at a distance of 30 cm. This is an absolute record for terrarium lighting and at least comes close to sunlight. And what effect does that have on my reptiles? We can tell you the following and anyone who uses the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle for the first time will be able to sign it: You've never seen anything like it in a terrarium before! A completely astonished customer once wrote to us: "Unbelievable, my animals go off like that, that's not normal!" What the customer actually meant is this: By illuminating the terrarium with the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle, an almost natural condition is simulated for terrarium animals. Imagine having spent the last few years in a dimly lit room without windows and then one beautiful spring day taking a walk in the sunny park for the first time. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle has the same effect on your reptiles! And the "going off" is nothing other than the natural behaviour of your terrarium protectionists under optimal light conditions. Under the influence of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle reptiles glow in natural, wonderful colors as you have never seen before, the natural behavior is stimulated, the vitality of reptiles increases by leaps and bounds and the positive effects on general health are hardly high enough to evaluate.
What is the difference in the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle's performance? The secret lies in the incomparable efficiency of the energy supplied. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle converts almost all the energy supplied directly into light. What do you think this looks like with conventional terrarium lamps? You better hold on tight: Here up to 95 (!) % of the energy is lost as heat and this becomes noticeable in the terrarium naturally fast by rising temperatures. This may be desirable here and there, but in general it is difficult to set up a reptilian temperature gradient as it should be. Because: Even in the wild reptiles choose warm and cooler places according to their needs. Transforming the entire terrarium into an evenly warm sauna cannot be in the interest of the health of your terrarium protegees. This is exactly where the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle comes into its own: Due to the low waste heat of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle in the terrarium, this ingenious terrarium lamp is also suitable for use in smaller terrariums (from a size of approx. 60 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm) - with conventional UV lamps of this performance class completely unthinkable! And something else: Because the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle concentrates the heat in its light focus, you can use this terrarium lamp to create excellent local sun and heat spots, which your reptiles will visit whenever sunbathing is due. There is no better and more species-appropriate way for terrarium lighting.
For which reptiles is the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle recommended? You have to take a closer look at the light properties of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle. This terrarium lamp is designed to reproduce the light spectrum that prevails in rainforests and lightly wooded steppes or savannahs. Tests have shown that a colour temperature of 4000 K is optimal and is clearly preferred by reptiles from such regions. These include water dragons or iguanas and other rainforest inhabitants as well as chameleons. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle achieves exactly these values, provides UV-A and UV-B radiation in perfectly balanced proportions and provides the necessary warmth. In combination with the incredible light intensity, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle really brings a little sun into your terrarium!
We have already been able to tell you a lot about the economic efficiency of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle, but one factor has not yet been taken into account: the incredibly long life expectancy of this unique terrarium lamp. Also here the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle is absolutely record-breaking: More than 6000(!) hours are an outstanding operating time and no other terrarium UV lamp comes close here. Converted: Only after approx. 1 year it is recommended to exchange the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle! This is also a top value. A comparison with conventional UV lamps makes this even clearer, as the UV output drops so much after just a few weeks that such defective terrarium lamps would have to be replaced after just 3 months. Here the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle loosely achieves four times the lifespan. At this point we simply do the math: You only have to buy the necessary ballast for the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle once anyway and the lamp itself only has to be changed once a year. In addition there is the enormous energy saving, since you achieve, we remember, with only 70 watts of power a five times higher light output than with conventional UV surface emitters with 160 watts. With halved electricity costs thus five times more light in the terrarium. You don't have to be a mathematician to calculate for yourself with which terrarium lighting you can drive better and cheaper in the long run.
Reptile Cosmos Service: What else you should know about the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle
- The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle requires a suitable ballast for operation in the terrarium. Here the original Lucky Reptile ballast is always recommended, as the Lucky Reptile Bright Control has been adapted exactly to the requirements of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle.
- Operate the incredibly powerful Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle always with a ceramic frame. Cheap metal frames or plastic frames are not suitable here, because such frames can melt through very quickly - a risk that you must absolutely avoid. Highly recommended, on the other hand: The Thermo Socket Plus reflector set with plug connection. Everything fits together here, because the connector fits exactly to the Lucky Reptile Bright Control. So you can avoid adventurous and dangerous installations in your terrarium in the future - simply plug and play and enjoy maximum security.
- Existing cabling and installations in the terrarium can of course be retrofitted to operate the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle. Please make sure that the used cable is able to withstand the high voltages when igniting the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle.
- For smaller terrariums (size approx. 60 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm) it makes sense to choose a lower wattage of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle. Please use the 50-watt version here. In this way you can avoid overheating in any case. The 70 Watt version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle should be reserved for larger terrariums and also offers more than sufficient power for large terrariums.
The following table shows you once again that the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Jungle 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, 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 corresponds to that of a conventional 160 Watt terrarium UV lamp.

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.
