Item number RK0885
With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt Lucky Reptile introduces the high performance version of the proven Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert. The power reserves of this incredible surface emitter are so large that the illumination of large terrariums is no longer a problem. With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun series, Lucky Reptile has achieved a real revolution in terrarium lighting and the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is the king of this product series. The mixture contained in this terrarium lamp contains everything your reptiles really need: perfectly balanced daylight, exactly the right amount of UV radiation and the right basic heat. Now, of course, you could say, "So what? Other UV lamps can do that too! And they're even cheaper. This is not true, however, because the first big difference lies in the incomparably high performance with considerably lower power consumption. You won't find that in this form with any other terrarium lamp. We only need to look at the data of the normal 70-watt version of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert: This UV surface emitter far exceeds the heat and UV output of all comparable 160 watt terrarium emitters! But that wasn't all. As far as light intensity is concerned, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert achieves values that until recently were considered impossible. Here the comparable 160 watt mixed light lamps are surpassed by a factor of five. We can also add this up quickly and then come to the following result: The effective light output is 10 times higher with identical power consumption! And these are not theoretical values - the energy saving potential is enormous and is guaranteed to make itself felt in electricity consumption. By the way: With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt even large desert terrariums can be optimally treated. The recommended maximum distance between the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt and the reptiles is a sensational 120 cm.
Please note: The Bright Sun must be operated with a suitable ballast (e.g. Bright Control Pro 3).
One of the really impressive aspects of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is the light intensity produced by this extraordinary terrarium lamp. If we take a look into the nature, on sunny days we get here brightness values of more than 100.000 Lux. The sun is simply the role model and frontrunner, and the 10,000 lux of a normal mixed light lamp, as used in the terrarium sector, looks very cloudy with its maximum of 10,000 lux. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt reaches an incredible 67.000 Lux at a distance of 50 cm in this discipline. No other terrarium lamp can even come close to achieving this illuminance. One could ask oneself whether such a high light output in the terrarium is necessary at all. We can answer that with a resounding yes. An amazed and enthusiastic customer once wrote us the following: "Unbelievable, my animals go off like that, it's not normal! On the contrary, this is completely normal and absolutely natural. You can simply see for yourself the reason if you imagine you have spent week after week in a gloomy shack and you can finally go for a walk in a sun-drenched park. What you feel should correspond to the effect of using the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt in the terrarium. The light conditions here are almost natural for your terrarium animals. So this "going off" is nothing more than completely natural behaviour in perfect lighting conditions. By the way, you can also see this from the fact that the colours of your reptiles appear bright and brilliant under the light of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt - just as they would look in real sunlight, in their true form. The vitality and activity of reptiles are also massively increased under such conditions. The light of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is the ultimate feel-good factor in the terrarium and for your reptiles a real wellspring of health.
If you want to know how this difference in performance is compared to normal UV lamps, you have to take a closer look at the technical concept of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt. The essential point here is the significantly increased energy efficiency. It is important to know that all conventional terrarium lamps emit almost 95 % of the energy absorbed in the form of heat. In the end you maintain a terrarium heater with a little light. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt has been optimized in this area and designed according to a completely different concept. Among many other advantages, this fact ensures that the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt hardly changes the temperature level in the terrarium. This makes it possible to set up an optimal temperature gradient for reptiles that is not disturbed by the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt. Thus reptiles have the possibility to choose whether they want to stay in warmer or cooler zones of the terrarium - just as they do in nature. The waste heat of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is indeed so low that it can also be used in perfectly insulated terrariums. The ingenious characteristics of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt reflector ensure that the radiated heat is completely concentrated in the light focus. With this terrarium lamp you can easily create local sun and heat places. Your reptiles then decide for themselves when the time has come for a warming sunbath.
Now the question arises for which types of reptiles the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is suitable. Here a small look at the light characteristics of this ingenious terrarium lamp is enough. The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt produces a light spectrum similar to that found in desert areas. By experiments with appropriate reptiles one came to the conclusion that a color temperature of 6000 K is suitable here, since desert reptiles feel particularly well thereby. This is not only true for bearded dragons, but also for many species of turtles, which additionally have a high need for UV-A and UV-B radiation and also require a higher degree of infrared heat radiation. With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt all this is guaranteed to a great extent! You could put it that way: The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is like a real sun in your terrarium.
As far as the economy of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is concerned, one can only be full of praise. We have already experienced the tremendous energy efficiency of this terrarium lamp, but there is still a big plus here. This is the outstanding life of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt. Here again the absolute top class proves itself! With more than 6000 (!) hours, an operating time is achieved that no other UV lamp can achieve. This can also be said in more concrete terms: the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt only needs to be replaced after one year of operation. If we make a comparison here with normal UV lamps, we get the following picture: Normal terrarium lamps with a UV component lose so much UV output after just a few weeks that they often have to be replaced after just three months. With the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt you reach four times the life span! And then we'll put it all together: You only have to buy the right ballast for a Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt once anyway and change the terrarium lamp once a year. In addition, we add the high energy savings with significantly higher light output. Even with the 70-watt version, we have beaten a conventional 160-watt mixing light lamp tenfold, if you look at the light output at much lower power consumption! You're welcome to calculate for yourself the incredible power you can achieve with the 150-watt version - here you can more than double it all! And now we can see which terrarium lamp is really cheaper, because the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV lamps are the clear winners in this comparison.
Reptile Cosmos Service: Additional Information About The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert
- The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt cannot be operated without the appropriate ballast. The best way is to use an original ballast from Lucky Reptile. The Lucky Reptile Bright Control in particular is 100% matched to the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt and guarantees smooth interaction between the terrarium lamp and ballast.
- Caution: Under no circumstances should you operate the incredibly powerful Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt on a cheap plastic or metal frame. The heat generated during operation of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt near the socket can cause such cheap lamp sockets to simply melt through. This is not only a huge risk for your reptiles, but also a latent danger for your home security. Therefore: Always use a ceramic socket! A perfect alternative here is the Thermo Socket Plus reflector set with its ingenious plug connection. Everything is perfectly matched and the connector fits perfectly to the Lucky Reptile Bright Control. You can easily avoid any kind of unsafe, homemade electrical installation in the terrarium. With simple plug and play you provide maximum security in your terrarium!
- You can of course easily retrofit existing cabling and installations in the terrarium for operation with the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt. However, you must ensure that you use a suitable cable that can withstand the high voltages that can be generated when igniting the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt.
- The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is the ideal solution for lighting large desert terrariums. This is also supported by the fact that the UV radiation of the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is effective over a distance of 120 cm. Here, too, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt set a clear record. For smaller terrariums, however, we recommend the 70 Watt version, i.e. a conventional Lucky Reptile Bright Sun UV Desert, as the 150 Watt version can lead to overheating problems. In large terrariums, however, the Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Ultra Desert 150 Watt is definitely in its element.
Overview of the heat radiation in the terrarium by the Lucky Reptile Brigh Sun Ultra Desert:
The following table gives you detailed information about the temperatures achieved in the focus of the Bright Sun Ultra Desert depending on the distance.
|Bright Sun Ultra Desert||approx. 80°C||approx. 58°C||approx. 46°C||approx. 35°C|
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.
