Little cheapie LPF type isn't it? Shorter than a standard ballast? I have a similar one by Advance, called "BenchLite". Ain't worth a fart in a whirlwind, except to do the mercury migration thing with!

Preheat Fluorescents forever!

It's not! It's about the same length as a 1-2 lamp rapid start lamp for F20T12s or a 1 lamp NPF ballast for F40s. I'm going to replace it with a Universal HPF ballast.
I had another similar Lithonia wraparound with the same ballast in my storage building. If it was anywhere around freezing the ends would just glow red. I replaced that with an Advance electronic rapid start ballast. Says minimum start temp is 50F but easily starts lamps in sub-0 temps!

Yea, this one I have came in a customer's cheapie Lithonia wraparound fixture. Burns the lamps at around 75% brightness. I converted it to T-8 electronic, per their request.

Where this fixture was used it seemed bright enough, but when I replaced it with one of my old kitchen lights (which came with HPF ballasts) it was really bright in there

I have the exact same model # from May 1991 but mine is rated 0.675A.

I've noticed that the older ones, like yours and my other HomeBrite (from Aug 1991) state the current at .675 amps, where this newer one states the current at .75 amps. My BenchLite states its current at .85 amps. I'm not sure if these other ones truly are higher output or if its just a labeling fluke.

Everyone here should have a power analyzer. The Kill-A-Watt is very accurate for a very wide range of load and the Orange should have them in store for $25.

It will measure true input watt as well as power factor.

I've looked at them. I want one, but not in the budget at the moment.
