    How many of you actually use them? I'm debating picking one up to better monitor UVB output in my enclosures, specifically towards the back end of the bulbs life.

    Since I couldn't figure out how, exactly, to post a poll just select of of these options and paste it in your post.
    -I currently use one and find it to be an extremely important tool
    -I have used one in the past but no longer find the need
    -I have always thought about picking one up
    -I provide UVB but I feel no need for one
    -I do not provide UVB

    I love mine. I have a solarmeter. I use it regularly.

    Same here.
    And it pays for itself the first few times that you don't just automatically replace a perfectly good UVB bulb just because the calenders say to.

    That's what I figured as well...thinking of a Solarmeter 6.2.

    I used one in the past (a Solarmeter 6.2), though these days it`s not as important to me to know whether my MVB`s UVB output is still effective, as the reptile/s I keep don`t need UVB exposure to remain healthy when all other conditions are in place (Varanids).

    That makes plenty of sense. Since I keep Uros UVB output is extremely important to me. Different reptiles, different needs.
