  1. So i've been looking around for a while now and can't seem to find the light and ballast for under $200. I can also find the bulbs at lowes but they don't carry 400 watt and cant even seem to find a ballast. Would appreciate it if yall could help me out:). Thanks
  2. You can always check ebay.
  3. Police auction? Just kidding, but HTG Supply has some 400w set-ups for under $200. I've used them before and the shipping was discreet.
  4. Good advice - I got mine there w/ bulb and shipping for less than $130. It was used (ballast) but the bulb was new. Package only had the name the guy uses on eBay with a return address, shipped UPS. The most important thing is...it works!
  5. I just got back from both Lowes and Home Depot. I was actually looking for some CFL stuff (I'll step up to the big leagues of HID lights soon). I saw some 400watt bulbs at hme depot but I didnt really pay attention to the price since I wasnt planning to buy. I hope this helps.
  6. Especially on eBay, always purchase bulbs from a reputable seller. HID bulbs have a lower output the longer they're used and some bad people out there sell used bulbs as new.

    I met a guy once who had bought two used bulbs for his first grow, thinking they were new, and went through 3.5 grows before finding out that 400's are supposed to be more than twice as bright as his were.
  7. Do you think about Electrodeless lamp for grow lights.
    it is very Save electricity
