Re: what r the best tanning lamps

There is not one best lamp. There are many, many very good lamps available from many good companies. If you want more feedback post the make and models of the beds you are looking to relamp.

Re: what r the best tanning lamps

Light Sources, Heraeus, Wolff, and Cosmedico are the best brands.

Re: what r the best tanning lamps

Kevin & Jess, do you have magnetic or electric ballasts in your TA beds? If they are magnetic you'll get 500hrs tops, electric should last longer. ^EDST is correct about those brands being the best, but if you have magnetic ballasts stick to Light Source, they seem to do better with those ballasts.

Re: what r the best tanning lamps

Light Sources makes a great lasting lamp. In 10 years, nothing has topped it. The only Wolff lamp I have had success with has been the Bronzing Sun Gold 200W. It keeps a peak performance, I just wish it lasted longer.

We just made the mistake of Bronzing Sun lamps for our Hex stand up.
Every bulb was burned out by 180 hours. Will never order again.

Wow! I have the Bronzing Sun Gold VSR 200W in my Radius 252. Our clients love this bed.
