Thank you for your question shortboy. At 50 microwatts per second/cm2 of UVB this would be the most appropriate light for your Bearded Dragon. Also, these are designed for 3,500 hours or twelve full months of average use. While the visible light may be present for longer than that the UVB and UVA portions of the spectrum are spent after this and should be replaced.

To ensure these bulbs are appropriate for desert reptiles they provide a full dosage of UVB (50 microwatts per second/cm2) along with essential UVA light, plus visible-spectrum illumination that makes skin coloration more vivid and viewable. While we do not test for Color rendering index (CRI), I suspect their CRI value would also be high (above 80) as the high levels of phosphor used to provide the UVB value would also drive up the CRI index. While these lights do look great, our lighting quality tests are designed to evaluate the animal's needs more so than aesthetics, so we simply do not test for CRI.
