Light socket adapter SAFE?

  1. ive been doing CFL's and i plan to get an HPS for flowering since everyone is nagging me to do so.

    i wanna get an E39 bulb but im not big on spendind money so i was wondering if it would be safe to use an E27 adapter so it will fit into my normal light sockets.

    im pretty sure it is safe so i already ordered it for 4$. but i was wondering what y'all think? dont assume its going to blow up just because its not what youre used to.

    i doubt there are any poor old chaps like me that have actually tried this but if anyone has any knowledge im not aware of, please send it my way.

    the light is a 400w HPS
  2. No. Just no.. Have phone handy to call local fire dept if you do. Simple enough.. Need ballast 250 watt and above.
  3. great, not getting HPS now for sure.

    CFL's it is! wish me luck
