Lighting question
    #210108 - 03/29/09 09:22 PM (7 years, 8 months ago)

Does anybody know if something like this could be exploited to run Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium bulbs? 

The price is sure better than grow light ballasts....

No it can't. You need a ballast. Also you need a reflector that would be productive. Even if you could rig it, I wouldn't. I refuse to use anything that is not UL listed for my intended purpose. I don't need a fire risk, esp one in the middle of a grow. Its about as safe as a noob modifying a chainsaw. Just bad.

:lmafo: oh that was a good laugh. Way to look for some ingenuity though, but i would follow Ethnoguy's advice. Just get the correct stuff.

You can get a 400w HPS for a little more than $100, everything included. That will grow you some beautiful ladies.

Mary likes mutual relationships, she puts out equal to what you put in.

yeah yeah, sheesh, chill it with the condescension.  I was merely looking to save some money, I have an HPS ballast already, just thinking about upgrading

I stay away from cheap stuff. A lot of it comes from China. While it is UL listed, that doesn't mean the components are listed to run together. You get what you pay for.
