RE: [APD] Over driving lights

Hi Scott

I over drive the same as Jim wrote in his post. I basically take the electronic ballast that comes with the 4 foot shop light fixture and wire one light to it. It increases the available light by a massive amount.

It is an old reef keeper trick. They advocate the use of fans over the lights to minimise the heat build up. I live in a hot climate and so far this has not been an issue. The cooling is also meant to extend the life of the bulbs. I have used this for about a year now in total and I must say that this is the best option for great lighting on a limited budget or if you like Jim have limited space.

Anyway if there are any people that want a detailed plan or any other help I will be glad to help.
