Very nice collection of slimline ballasts! Have you considered testing with 60 watt lamps too?

I'm admittedly ever so slightly jealous of some of these ballasts, I need to build my collection of spare slimline ballasts.

On a side note, that Jefferson...I found one in 2014 at a ReStore to install in one of my godfather's fixtures. I believe it's still in use.

Yeah, the lead-lag ones are especially interesting. I also have a lead-lag for 2xF48T12 actually modded with extra cap and installed in 2xF72T12 light in the garage. Always starts on even the coldest days. The bottom Ad-Lite I got several years ago from Jason Chapman. I haven't had time to test these on 60w lamps yet.

So now I see the size comparison between those two lead-lag ones, and the regular ones. And also the lamp current comparison.
Is there a way you can take a photo of brightness differences between the lead lag and regular slimlines?
Another thing I thought about... maybe you can make a video showing how EOL lamps run with the lead-lag ballasts. (With sunglasses
in front of the lens to block out the 60 or 120 hertz flicker)
Yep... It must be said... suzukir122... is jealous.
Much like ace100w120v. I have got to step it up with the slimline and even HO ballasts. Seriously. As of now, I have none.

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

I would like to do some eol experiments with these, as well as get some pics. Hopefully, in the upcoming cold months, I'll get into more of these projects!
