Just testing it in my 113. It's not too bright, but it would be perfect for a backyard or something.

I see the yellow 10 on the fixture denoting a HPS fixture.

Yeah it's 100w HPS, I just bypassed the internal ballast. This fixture actually used to be installed across the street from my house. I was able to get it by taping a big note to the pole asking them to leave the old light on my doorstep when they installed the new LED lights.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Mercury ballasts are becoming scarce and the prices are going up because of it. I found some that are new but the thickness of the coil prevents me from mounting them in a cobra. Seems GE specs it's ballasts and it is difficult to find a ballast that will fit that is not a GE spec replacement.

So you used a remote ballast? I might do the same thing with 250w or 400w HPS street lighting fixtures, remotely ballasted with 150w or 100w HPS.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

Looks way under driven...would be cool if you could find an H38 ballast for it.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

It was actually much brighter and whiter than the pic suggests.

if your not in big hurry H38 ballast will show up at restores now and then. some time you can find them cheap. but driving MV with a HPS ballast us good way to underdrive it also at same time that it can cycle.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

I was actually running it on a 70w halide ballast with the ignitor disconnected. They are very close in specs to an h38 ballast, they just supposedly underdrive the lamp a bit.
