It has been over twenty years since I took basic electronics at my local
Technical College !

My question is this - I have purchased two egg incubators from America,
basically they are identical.

One is a 110 volt unit and the other is a 240 volt unit - they use a different light bulbs as a heat source. There are no electronic parts or controls.

The 110 volt units use a 7 watt E14 bulb and the 240 volt units use a 10 watt E14 bulb.

Can you please advise me if the heat output from both bulbs will be similar, as surely the voltage is irrelevant to the wattage (power) output?

My logic says that the 10 watt bulb will produce more heat than the 7 watt bulb - as per an electric radiator rating?

I will of course replace the 110 volt bulb with 240 volt bulb.

Thanks in advance for any assurance and advice that you can give me.

Regards,

Ron Murray.
