Sonlight electronic kits produces up to 30% more lumens than a standard core and coil (magnetic) ballast grow light whilst drawing less electricity.
The Sonlight ballast is completely silent (no more buzzing) and produces less heat than a standard ballast Because of Sonlight's soft start technology the lamps last up to three times as long. Test data has shown that a Sonlight 400 watt ballast produces within 5% of the usable light of a 600watt core and coil ballast grow light! Digital ballasts also do not degrade like standard ballasts do. Over time magnetic ballasts become louder, produce less light, emit more heat and use more electricity. Electronic ballasts maintain their efficiency throughout their life span. Choose the highest possible standards, quality and safety!
