This 6 watt LED 5500k daytime bulb gives off no heat and does NOT contain any mercury. It does not contain any UV.
It is 660 lumens (like a 60w incandescent bulb or 18w cfl bulb) and a rated life of 30,000 hours. We do recommend replacing annually as some of the LED bulbs can dull.
Along with the LED full spectrum bulb, our UV LED Blue bulb should be used. Both bulbs can be used during normal daytime hours. So no worries, your pet bird can have the best of the best with FeatherBrite.
We believe these are the best bulb for the birds. Great for African Greys, Amazons, Lovebirds, Conures, Finches, all types of parrots and birds!
The FeatherBrite 6w LED full spectrum bulb will fit any standard socket. The FeatherBrite UV bulb has a candelabra base.
These bulbs cannot be used with a dimmer switch.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FULL SPECTRUM BULBS AND A STANDARD FLUORESCENT BULBS?
Full spectrum LED light emits light in all parts of the visual spectrum. To be a full spectrum bulb, the color temperature must be 5000K or greater, and the CRI must be at least 90. A standard fluorescent bulb generally only has a CRI of between 60 and 75, which means the intensity of the source of light is much lower, the temperature is cooler, and there is a noticeable difference or dulling of colors when objects are placed under a standard bulb. Keeping to those standards, the FeatherBrite bulb comes quite close to being a source of natural light for your bird, and the differences, not just visually, but in the demeanor and general health of your bird are vast.
Our FeatherBrite 6w LED bulb is designed with the newest technology and you will not find this bulb anywhere except here at FeatherBrite. This bulb is 5500 kelvin on the color scale which is identical to our previous spiral compact bulb. It's the perfect output for all birds!
