Thanks, but I am now using the new halogen ones as direct replacements for the old incandescent style. They look just like a normal old light globe except they have a different filament. They are advertised as being 30% more efficient than the old style but I doubt many brooders or incubators would notice the difference. They seem to be just starting to appear in stores now, I got a few from Coles today.

Hi Denis
I have seen these globes starting to appear, how do they rate as far as heat out put?
Do you need to go up wattage to get the same heat level? e.g. use 100w instead of 75w?

Cheers

Denis.... I'm using the new ones aswell.... No problems so far.... Watts = Heat, so I went to a larger wattage... Whoever can bend the laws of electricity and product a low wattage lamp that emmits heat will be a millionaire overnight..!

I've just used these ones in the incubator I just used

they were the only ones at the supermarket close to old school bulbs so I thought I'd give them a try. I have two of these which are working fine. The lower ones (equal to 40w were no good) They say they last two years based on a lifetime of 2000 hours, not sure how the constant turning on and off in the incubator will impact this

Going to buy a brooder box which uses old style light globes... just wanted to refresh this post to see if anyone else had any opinions on the effectiveness of the new globes in old shape :P
Are they exactly the same, except the increase in wattage as suggested previously?
