Looks like this is what the OP had intended to link to...

The only thing that would be worrying to me is this:

optimal UV-B supply for desert and savannah day active reptiles

But if adjusted properly above the enclosure and allowing space to retreat from the light, it should be ok.....but again, it would have to be placed properly(not too close to get burned). Would probably need a solar meter to test what it is putting out. But that is just my humble opinion, I would wait for some more experienced light gurus to chime in.

me and most of the forum users have reptisun 5.0 bulbs, if its for desert reptiles that's probably to much UVB. the recommended UVB is 5.0 for chameleons.
Hope this helps :)

That is an overpriced waste if you only want it for basking temps.

Just use a regular house bulb for basking.

I use a 65 watt grow light I got from Lowes for about $8.00. Works great in the brooder clamp light enclosures.
