In early 2018 I got my first RHP which was a 120 watt from Reptile Basics. It worked great, and I added a second 120 watt to a different box in 2019.

In 2021 I noticed the one installed in 2018 was no longer putting out heat. At the end of this winter, back in April, I noticed the one from 2019 was no longer putting out heat either.

I ordered two replacements, but accidentally ordered the 80 watt ones instead. Has anyone else had any failures with these? What size is everyone using?

Thanks!

Hi Vladimirs dad, I noticed on the Reptile basics website that the 120 watt are out of stock. You might have to use 80 watt.

I use the 80 watt ones. I've never had one fail.
