What is the Life Expectancy of the Light Bulbs on my Portable Light Tower?

metal halide light tower bulbsOne of the more frequent questions we get from light tower operators involves the life expectancy of the light tower bulbs. Most units nowadays feature metal halide bulbs which are extremely energy efficient, saving you time and money. You can expect these bulbs to perform up to manufacturer's standards and suggested life expectancies when used under "normal" conditions:

  • 1,000-watt metal halide bulbs - 10,000 hours
  • 1,250-watt metal halide bulbs - 7,000 hours
Whether your intention is to purchase or rent a portable light tower, there are few guidelines you shoud follow. In order to get the most out of each and every halide light bulb, make sure you purchase OEM bulbs from the manufacturer of your specific light tower. Store them in a clean environment and handle them with gloves as the natural oil from our hands can cause them to burn at higher temperatures, thus decreasing life expectancy.
