    Hey Mark, I recently received my new Lumatek dimmable 400w ballasts. They have a setting for 250w and 250 hqi (I’m running 250w bulbs). What is the “hqi” setting and can I run it? Does it hurt anything to try?

    Good point, i my self have an electronic balast that i hate, it over drives my bulbs way past the sweet spot of the bulb i have, but soon i will upgrade to LED with on the fly color changes 😀

  • Which ballast are you running? Most e-ballasts will detect what voltage is right for the bulb and adjust accordingly

  • Fantastic site. A lot of helpful information here. I am sending it to several pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And certainly, thanks to your effort!
