What is this tube for?
This is a replacement 45W tube for the Maplin mini SAD light (A54LC). It boasts an impressive 8,000 hour lamp life and offers a 10,000 lux fluorescent light that is designed to help combat the symptoms of SAD.

How can the light help combat the effects of SAD?
Using a SAD light for a few hours at a range of 15cm away will help increase your levels of serotonin and decrease your levels of melatonin, this in turn will brighten your mood and make you feel more awake – giving you more energy.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or ‘winter depression’ is linked to reduced exposure to sunlight, which may affect your production of melatonin, serotonin and disrupt your body’s functions and patterns. Melatonin is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy, and serotonin is a hormone that affects your mood, appetite and sleep. Lower serotonin levels are linked to feelings of depression. Your body also uses sunlight to time various important functions, such as waking up, so the lower light levels during winter may disrupt your body clock and lead to symptoms of SAD and general fatigue.

How many hours of useage will each bulb provide?

Asked by: Confuzzled
We would expect around 8000 hours, but this can be decreased depending on the amount of on / off's.

I have broke one.  It is completely smashed. Is it safe to remove it?  Does it contain Mercury? 

Asked by: Yuriy
Yes it does contain mercury but only a very small amount, don't worry about the mercury, be more concerned about the phosphor dust (white powder), it is bad for lungs. Use gloves (gardening ones would be best) to remove what is left of the tube/bulb, bag it up well for disposal to contain everything. Hope this puts your mind at rest.
