Bought a 50w bulb today from petco. Was testing the heat by placing a thermometer six three and one inches away , at 6 inches the temperature was only 30C, 3 inches about 37C, and 1 inch 50C
I noticed 50w might be a little bit too low since.when trying to come close to the bulb my glans actually touched the bulb for a split second (ouch.)
When being more careful though I loved the feeling I got with an IR bulb, way better than rice sock
I guess I’ll go for the 75 watt one I saw there, only problem is my lamp says not to use anything above 60 watts or else there is a risk of fire, I’ve never actually owned a lamp before, does anyone know if it would it be dangerous to put a 75watt bulb in a 60 watt lamp?
