MH Conversion bulbs
    #145694 - 11/16/08 11:11 PM (8 years, 23 days ago)

would I be able to use a MH conversion bulb 400w, in my 400w hps ballast?  im confused on this conversion idea.  I have seen multi-use ballasts where you unpower the unit, switch a switch and you can use different bulbs; but i have a 400W HPS setup that does not have this function, so would it still work?  I would like to use the MH over CFL if I can w/o purchasing a new system and can use a freaking bulb lol:flyhigh:

Yes, that is what a conversion bulb is for. The ballasts with switch don't need a conversion bulb they can run acutal MH and HPS.
