Cheaply made bulbs

I bought these bulbs, used them for about 2 months and the day bulb burned out. I took them back to the store for an exchange and the day bulb burned out again within 2 months. I use the Zoo Med Mini Combo Deep Dome Lamp Fixture for the bulbs. The day bulb side lamp fixture also short circuited the first time the day bulb burned out. I exchanged the lamp too, the lamp is still working this time but the bulb is burned out again. Got to return again. Nowhere near worth $8 a bulb when a regular light bulb costs 50 cents and lasts for years.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have had my lizard for over 7 months and I will have replaced the bulb 4 times after I buy my new one. Once I get the money I will be switching to a different multi-lamp that takes different bulbs in the hope that they will last. The daytime bulb is the one I have the trouble with but it is a different brand than the other ones I use. If I could find one in the other brand I would gladly pay extra to have it because I think it would last longer.

These are the same bulbs as the separate packs, only this saves you a little bit of money by buying together. Each is 60 watt, one blue and one red.
I've noticed that on my lamps Zoo Med bulbs tend not to last very long, but then I do have these old "clamp lamps".
Good news is the blue day bulb isn't very blue, so it helps prevent the cage from looking dark or depressing.
Test both bulbs to make sure they work--incase one of them doesn't, you'll want to exchange these before it's too late.
Overall these aren't bad, I just wouldn't use these for special reptiles that need exact heating/lighting since these are more run-of-the-mill type bulbs. Overall not too bad though, it's worth looking into.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I purchased these bulbs for my new Cornsnake about a week ago, I just got the little guy so these were the first "red bulbs" I've had to shop for. I've actually purchased many reptile bulbs in the past (for my bearded dragon and Chinese water dragon) but this was the first "red" bulb I've had to buy. Seeing as reptile bulbs are so expensive I went with the twin pack because it was comparatively cheaper then the single bulbs... Unfortunately the red night bulb died within 5 days of use! (I didn't actually use the blue day bulb) I went out and bought a second set thinking I just got a bad batch or perhaps the large lamp I was using just over-loaded the bulb, but, within 2 days the second set also died! (even after switching to a smaller lamp) I've purchased many lamps/bulbs for my reptiles but this set is by far the worst!! Took it back and got a Zilla light instead, they're usually really good so we'll see how it goes. I do not recommend this product!
