Hello everyone!

My basking bulb just burnt out, and I went to get one incandescent bulb, as all of you recommend them, but I know they are banned in a lots of places, and the only one I found was saying "Special incandescent lamp to be used at temperature conditions from -30°C to +80°C in heating, ventilating, refrigerating, signaling and other similar equipment. According to Commission Regulation No 244/2009 of 18 March 2009 the lamp is not suitable for household room illumination."
And there is a pictogram of a house crossed.

I believe that they could only release it with this tweak, to write that to it, and it's just a normal bulb, what I can use over my hermann's, but I would appreciate some confirmation about it.

Thank you all in advance.

With incandescent becoming extinct, you may have to improvise by hanging a che right next to any safe bulb giving off light.
The light and che together/side by side will accomplish the same thing.

Are you in Hungary?
I hadn't realized that this incandescent thing even existed outside of the USA.
I'm sorry to hear it.
When you find a suitable bulb, buy a few spares.
That's my recommendation.

Yeah, it's the same here as well sadly.

Thank you all for the help, I'll make the adjustments.
