    I also hold multiples of various wattage Phillips spotlight globes, it doesn't take much for one to blow and your enclosure be without heat until you can source an alternative.

    I use Arcadia 10% or 12% UVB fluros with a reflector, they guarantee 12 month life, but I still change out after 6 months ($80 each)
    Check out the prices on Amazing Amazon, $42-$56 depending on length and shipped VIC to QLD with no problems. Buy a couple to save on postage and it might be worth your while, especially living closer.

    I met Paul from Amazing Amazon back on the Turtle Forum ( RIP AFT) years ago. Still buys worms off me. He was a sponsor on there and I am sure offered discounts for members. He might be interested in doing the same thing here

    Hi guys!
    Newbie here. Just after advice on them Phillips spot lights. I have a spare spot light but itís a 150 watt globe. I think it might be to too high in wattage as all the research Iíve done indicates to only use from 60w -100w. I just found it in the shed But Iím not sure if itís a good idea to use it. Your thoughts please!
    Thank you in advance.

    If you have a 4x2x2 which is standard size for a beardy,150W would be too much. That's a yard flood light. Stick to the 60-100W range
