The small form factor makes this miniature electronic ballast a sleek and efficient tool for MH and HPS lamps when you have a light-weight frame or are strapped for space. Despite the small size, it runs cooler and more efficiently than a traditional magnetic ballast, saving you on electricity and heating costs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThatOtherGuy Bad plug, poorly built.
I bought this trying to save some cash, which I normally don't do.
It looks half decent online, but the build quality is kind of shotty. The first problem I noticed is the plug receptacle fits poorly, and if the wire gets bumped, it loses power. Second issue is the sounds it makes. Lots of high pitch squeels and whines that are variable as it runs, it doesn't sound good.
Lastly, It doesn't seem to have any sort of re-start protector, so if you bump that power cord, your bulb pop off and on real quick, which is no good.
..Ultimately it seems to be keeping the light on, which is its primary job. Still a few weeks until I know how the flowers turn out.
I would not recommend this.
