    Are the relux units not sound as complete kits, i.e. you cant replace the bulb, when it goes the idea is to replace the whole unit?

    I could be wrong.

    Is it a T5 bulb?

    The HO T5 complete units are sealed Sam as you say and are intended to be disposable but......

    ........when breaking one of mine when removing the lid I decided to keep the reflector and discoverd that the end caps fit snugly into the reflector and are just like any other so I would assume you can just buy new tubes, fit them into the snug endcaps and then seal the join again.

    whisper...but don't tell the retailers.....Ooops

    Makes them a much better investment now. he,he
