Cheap and reliable – magnetic ballasts are the cheapest option for running your light fixtures.
Magnetic ballasts work on physical principles that act as a choke on the electrical current passing through the lamp. High intensity Discharge (HID) lamps tend to use a large current on start-up to ‘get up to temperature’, this current then falls and stabilises to the operating current. If there wasn’t a ballast between the wall plug and your bulb, the bulb wouldn’t last long.
Supplied with rubber feet that reduce vibrational sounds, magnetic ballasts make hardly any noise and they operate quietly.
Passive air vents reduces heat build-up from the internal components; try mounting your ballasts outside your tent or environment if you’re having heat issues.
Magnetic ballasts are extremely reliable and can last for years of service if treated correctly.
Digital ballasts are superior to magnetic ballasts, but magnetic ballasts are more cost-effective in the short term. If you’re setting up a permeant or long-term garden, we recommend that you upgrade to digital ballasts, as they’re more versatile and use less electricity so they will pay for themselves over time in saved running costs.
How to use:
A good rule of thumb when installing an indoor garden is to keep all electrics above waist height and all water below; reducing the chance of the two mixing.
