These mercury vapor lamps are especially well-suited for insect collecting when compared to other MV lights requiring bulky and more expensive apparatus for ballasting or current conversion. Long favored in Europe for night collecting, mercury vapor lights are increasingly preferred by North American collectors who wish to attract a more varied selection of insects than those attracted by the black light band of the color spectrum.

2819A  The clear, 275-watt, 120-volt AC lamp is self-ballasted. With electronic components within the glass, the user can twist the lamp into any conventional medium base electrical socket, do not have a color temperature or lumen output.

NOTE: Glass in mercury vapor lamp bulbs becomes hot during use. Hot lamp bulbs cannot tolerate temperature shock from rain or mist, and break when they come in contact with moisture. BioQuip highly recommends using a 2819B rain shield with these lights. There is no warranty for mercury vapor lamp bulbs.

BioQuip suggests using eye protection when collecting with this light (see 2814 anti-UV glasses).
