there are 3 types of ballasts i think,magnetic,electronic and i think pulse not sure

Magnetic: over drive lights, making them brighter but wear them down faster sort of like the V8, it burns more and has to fill up more often with gas(lights in this case)

Electronic: starts with i think its 120ma? not sure and runs the lights more efficienty not burning them or over driving them so they last longer.esp when MH bulbs are about 40 bucks a pop for a decent mid watt one


not sure on pulse or if there is such a thing
