About Our Bulbs
TheraBulb® products are designed for in-home use by consumers seeking healing wavelength energy. TheraBulb bulbs are manufactured exclusively for us using non-toxic materials, allowing them to bear the CE mark and the RoHS certification. This means they are free of lead, mercury, Teflon, and other substances regulated under the EU's Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive.
TheraBulb has subjected our bulbs to independent laboratory testing. These tests verify:
- the percentage of total energy emitted at each wavelength
- the amount of energy available at a given distance from the bulb
- maximum operating temperature
Test data, along with other bulb characteristics, is detailed in written specifications available in each product description and here:
- 120V 150W Specifications (Coated and Uncoated Bulbs)
- 120V 250W Specifications (Coated and Uncoated Bulbs)
- 240V 150W Specifications
- 240V 250W Specifications
Each TheraBulb has a red colored coating. Inconsistencies in the red coating or the surface of the bulb —such as dimples, bubbles, areas of heavier or lighter coverage, darker or lighter color, and minor scuffs or scratches—may be more apparent when the bulb is lit, but will not affect the performance or life of the bulb.
TheraBulb bulbs are inspected to verify that the bases are free from burrs and stray blobs of solder, which are undesirable in a bulb that is likely to be handled frequently.
Each product is accompanied by written precautions and warnings to assist consumers in using them safely.
A Note On Extending the Life of Your TheraBulb
Believe it or not, there are right and wrong ways to screw in a light bulb.
Screwing the bulb into the socket too tightly can cause it to burn out prematurely. This is because doing so can flatten the part of the socket (an angled brass tab) that makes contact with the bottom of the bulb, and it is this contact that allows the bulb to light up. If the tab becomes flattened, the bulb can burn out too soon.
The bulb should be screwed in just enough for it to stay in place when you release your grip on it. Once the bulb is in this position, stop screwing it in. Screwing it further can flatten the tab.
