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
