    FS: MH & VHO Ballasts in Simi

    Post by seand on Sat Sep 07, 2013 5:00 am

    Hey all-

    I have a bunch of old metal halide and VHO ballasts I need to clear out.  They came with a sweet 300 gallon tank that I bought from a work buddy and plan to keep.  I prefer local pickup, in Simi but can arrange to meet in Ventura County or Western LA County.


    6 Sunlight Supply Blue Wave 1 Pulse Start 250w ballasts. Still sealed in the original boxes - never opened. $75 each - or best offer

    As these are factory sealed, I assume they work, but I've never used them.


    1 PFO Dual 250w Metal Halide Ballast. Dual power cords, so each lamp can be controlled independently. $75 - or best offer

    This worked the last time it was used (by my buddy), and it's been in storage for a few years.  I'll try to find the connector cord and a 250w lamp and fire it up to be sure.


    2 PFO 400w Metal Halide Ballasts. Used. $50 each - or best offer

    Same as the above dual ballast...


    1 PFO 2 lamp VHO ballast with wiring harness and end-caps. Dual power cords with on-off switches, so each lamp can be controlled independently. $75 - or best offer

    I'll get some T12 lamps and fire this up ASAP to verify it works.


    1 Hamilton Technology PC Ballast. Unknown wattage. Has manufacturer's custom female connector. $10 - or best offer

    No idea on this one.  I don't even have any PC bulbs anymore.  I may open it up to get the actual ballast specs and plug it in to read the output on my multi-meter.

    3 of the SLS ballasts are gone.  3 remain (new in box)

    I also have one used one (same ballast, just not new in box).
