So 2 weeks ago just before I leave to go to the ferry on vacation I check the tank one last time and only one MH light is on. WTF!!! Could have been worse ... Like the ballast blowing a day later. So for the last two weeks while I was away I've only been running one fixture mounted in the centre. Gotta get this fixed ASAP.

Does anyone have a 250w hqi ballast that is compatiable with lumenmax elite pendants/cords?

Let me know if you have something.
Thanks

Still looking. If you have anything I can borrow for a couple weeks that would be great.

Likewise if you have one you wanna sell let me know.

Thanks

I would just go to progressive and get a new one, 5 yr warranty in theirs.

I have this...... it a whole unit and dont know the cost of a new ballast for what you have so I thought I would throw it out there.

I've got a vertex 250w and a dual 250w galaxy (one side is dead)

Lmk if you're interested in either

Both are electronic

I also have a dead ballast in my 250W galaxy ballast. Does anyone know if I can swap out the good ballast to salvage one good dual ballast? Is it plug and play like the guts of a computer?

Probably not. Electronics are sealed, I believe.

Yup, I've taken one apart hoping it was possible but the housing is filled with black epoxy looking stuff
