I got a 50 watt UVA bulb, and the hood is good for up to 60 watts of heat, but the bulb still melted the plastic. My hood now has a little patch where the plastic has dented in and bubbled from the heat. It would work better if the two sockets were in the exact middle, but one socket is too close to the wall and this can cause problems. It's a bit of a fire hazard, I wouldn't recommend it.
This is a decent unit at a good price my only gripes are that its sockets are obviously made to fit the manufacturers bulbs. You can however fit a compact florescent on one side and a low wattage standard socket bulb on the other but definitely will not fit two florescent sized bulbs or any type of mercury vapor etc, Another slight peeve is that the first couple hours of running the plastic smells like its burning off of it, even at 1/2 the wattage limit.
This lamp is perfect for my chameleon, he loved it.
Was just what I was looking for only $13.98, was $34.00 at the pet store near here. Works great
