What type of timer do I need?

  1. I'm planning on getting a 250w cfl. I have an old mechanical timer that didn't work on an hid light. Then I heard you can only use electrical timers with his lights and mechanical timers with cfls. I tried the time on a regular house light and its not working. I need to know what type of timer I need before I buy the wrong light. And does a 250w cfl fit in a mogul socket?
  2. Just buy a digital one off ebay

    I think you can run something like 1000w through the average digital timer - but it will say on the box/advertising

    i find the old analogue ones break real quick
  3. Stick wit digital timers less headaches ez to use very reliable.
  4. Just get a cheap grounded mechanical timer from Walmart. I use one on a 600w hps that works just fine. It worked well with my 68w cfl also.
