No one really seems to have anything good to say about them, so I wouldn’t risk it. If you get a really good uvb linear tube bulb at the proper distance you won’t have to worry about it anymore:).

My guy has a coil uvb light and the reason i gave this title is because i want to know if every single coul uvb light is bad for beardies
The only coil that I know of that is half decent is the 26 watt Reptisun I have heard of no others -- I do know that bulbs that have CFL's are NO good and I think alot of the coils have that ---- your safest one is the long tube fixture either a Zoo Med or a Arcadia Pro T 5 12 % bulb or a Sunblaster Nano Tech but the bulb that comes w/ it needs to be changed out to a Repitsun 10.0 T 5 or the Arcadia 12% bulb

Yes it is good but you do want to back it up -- screen and distance for the UVB will block and weaken w/ a distance so you want to back it up w/ a long tube fixture --- for a 40 + gallon tank you can get a 24" or 30" fixture --- here are some links to the UVB's
this will come w/a 5.0 bulb this is more for a aquarium use you want the 22" Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb
sorry the pangea website is under maintenance and is not showing some of the items they are also out of stock on this one that is recommended
the 24" is sold out Arcadia ProT5 12% UVB Bulb With Hood
or you can get the Sunblaster Nano Tech but you need to change the bulb out to either the 22" Reptisun 10.0 T 5 or the Arcadia 12% bulb
these are all good fixtures and bulbs --

Cfl stands for compact florescent lamp and isn't something that coils have or don't have, it's just what they're called. I'm not sure why so many call them coils as not all CFLs are coil shaped and can be misleading.

Also a solar glo isn't a coil or cfl it's a mvb which stands for mercury vapor bulb. They produce uvb as well as heat unlike a cfl.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
