  1. So does anyone know how these really work? I need to know if I can hook up 8 ballast to this little machine hook it up to the dryer outlet and all eight lights come one at once? Or is it on a relay where one can be on at a time? :confused:PLease help!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Most dryer outlets are 240v, on a 20 or 30amp leg. Even at 240v you can only safely draw 5000-5500 watts on a 30amp leg.

    A controller typically delays startup between each ballast so the spike doesn't trip the breaker. So yea, it can run a lot of lights... 8? i don't know.. depends if they are 600w, or 1000w light....
  3. is 8 lights really needed? lol thats alot of light...
