Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Howard Electronic Ballasts I purchased six of these to replace the conventional magnetic ballasts that were used in my garage and workshop fixtures. Winter temperatures gave me a no-start or flicker below 55-60 degrees. The Howard ballast was one of the very few rated to operate down to 32 F (without resorting to high-output tubes). The fixtures now start instantly and run flicker-free in 40 degree conditions. Installation advice from Howard Lighting: sand the paint from the mounting foot of the ballast (where the sheet metal screw secures the ballast) and add a ground jumper to the input cable/fluorescent fixture ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by No Noise Replacements Used these ballasts to replace old magnetic ballasts that had begun to buzz. The Howard units are quiet and work great. January 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost excellent I like the wide range of starting temperatures. The supply power wires could be longer, I had to splice additional length in some applications. All told I would buy again. November 7, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by high performance Bought a case of 10 for a friends garage, they replaced magnetic RS ballasts that had intermittent starting below 32°F/0°C , these Howard industries ballasts will start down to 0°F with no issues and the sylvania design 50 (5,000k) lamps warm up in the 4 lamp troffer fixtures within 10 minutes March 9, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great replacement Good replacement for my old ballast in my garage. Easy to install and works great. February 26, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent Electronic Ballast This ballast seems to work well. It could be built better, however. The case is thin and flimsy. Also, the yellow wires come out on the same end as the red and blue wires. Usually, it is more convenient to have the yellow wires exit the other end of the ballast since they connect to the opposite end of the tubes. This ballast does not have "end-of-life" protection, so tubes will flicker and flash, and sometimes even crack when they fail. For a little more money, the Advance ballast is a little better.
