- More lumens - up to a 20% increase
- Dedicated Voltage - dual voltage ballasts sacrifice performance
- Enhanced Bulb Compatibility - works with all major brands of lamps
- Silent - the days of humming and buzzing are long gone
- Internal RF Shielding - best on the market
- Ultra Light Weight - only 8 pounds
- Soft Start - increases lamp life and lumen depreciation
- External Fuse System - protects against power surges
Lumatek™ digital ballasts feature the best warranty in the industry - 5 years!
I think I will go with the Lumatek. What bulb do you use? I got two 1 HPS 600w & 1 MH 600. I think they are Philips CERAMALUX, at 90,000 lumens on the HPS and I think only like 57,000 or so on the MH. Id like to get a SunMaster or Hortilux or something. I got some strains that ive never grew before, do you have any experience growing or smoking any of these: Hawaiian Skunk, Hawaiian Snow, Wonder Woman, G13 Haze & AK-48. I can't wait to try them. I really enjoy Sativa Highs like Kali Mist, one of my favorite Sats. Thanks for your help....
Did you check out the quantum dimmable ballast on Ebay for $250? I think that's the way to go.
