If anyone knows a place in bc where I can get them please let me know. Tried Jl, Home Depot, Rona, Stella's wholesale, Jims hydroponic store with no luck.

Can any of them provide non-shunted? FWIW, I think shunted just means the terminals have a jumper wire which you can add yourself. (I always understood it to be as, non-shunted ballasts provide a wire to each terminal pin of the lamp; where shunted means you get one wire to the end, so for both pins to get current you put a little jumper wire in so both pins get attached to the same wire. I'm probably doing a bad job of explaining this, sorry ... )

Shunted is used with ballasts that have instant start like the work horse brand. the difference is the jumper cable underneath.

Have you tried TES electrical supply or SMI?

And a few more... Albrite lighting and Norburn should have them. If not I know that Nedco does but their minimum order is $75, unless the guy is nice and you bring cash. $2 each or so

No worries, I stopped by on the way to Starbucks for you. Would've grabbed them but not sure how many you needed. The North Van store has only 2
