Pertinent to the recent discussion of ballast specs, I have started doubting
the necesity of ballasts altogether. I have ( amongst shoplites ) a GE
Brightstick, which is a 24inch fluorescent bulb with no ballast, but it
apparently has a starter ( a little flashlight lamp looking thing )
How does this thing work then? It seems like everywhere elese people use
I actually had to rip the Brightstick apart to put a full spectrum bulb in
it, and in the process I lost a little capacitor or something like that, but
this did not affect it's operatoin. Go figure.
