Just curious. Anybody used the bulb type ceramic heat emitters? Would they go on top of a cage like a light bulb? Do they get red like the ceramic elements in a space heater? Seems it would be too hot unless it was for large area heat. Opinions?

You mean the spot lamps? I have one. It doesn't get red, nor makes it light. It's very hot, the pothos leafes that grow nearer than 30 cm turn all black.

I use one in my cornsnake viv with a on/off thermostat. Keeps the temps fantastic (she eats, digests, poos and sheds ok) The probe is sat on the hot side (the side with the heater in it)
I have tidied up the edges of the cage surrounding it. :-) it stays white and the only way you can tell its on is if you go near it. Without a thermostat it would be too hot, but with its perfect. :-)

Wow..seems like that would be something best placed well above the enclosure then I suppose. Thanks for the reply..I was curious about how they worked. I think I am just gonna heat my entire reptile room. No bulbs, under tank heat, etc. First, I gotta move them all into one room..lol.

No, not the same thing... the ceramic heat emitters do not emit light. They do not get so hot that they glow red.
I love ceramic heat emitters, although they tend to dry out the cage. I set mine right on top in a regular ceramic light fixture. I think they are very much worth the money. I use 60w ceramic emitters in cages that are 12" high or less, 100w emitters for the tall cages. Never bought a 150w emitter.

I use these also. I use the 60W although I own also a few of the 100W but haven't found a need for them yet although my rooms are rather cold. I use them over 30L vivs in a 'regular' fixture, sitting on top of the screened lid of the viv just as I use the daily lights. They seem to keep the temperature at about 80F. I don't use a thermostat, nothing but a thermometer and humidity gaugedial in the cage as measures. Never a complaint about them; good eating, good pooping. No burning.
Thanks for all the imput. I may try one of the 60 watt emitters after all. I kinda like having my snakes where they see us around them all the time. I just need to keep their temps up a bit above 80, and ours around
74 or so..lol.

That's what I said.

I'm so *** that I missed out on a final bid on Ebay recently for 3 x 250W barely used ceramic heat emitters, including fixtures and fittings, that sold for around £20, when retail prices would have put them at nearer £100 or more Emotion: sad(
