Are you looking for ballasts designed for one fluorescent tube or ballasts designed for 2 fluorescent tubes?

The cheapest way would be to probably get a bunch of T12 2x4 troffers and take the ballasts out. 3 troffers will net you 6 ballasts. If you're lucky you can sometimes get them for free on sites like FB Marketplace or Craigslist.

There's a eBay seller here with 4 Advance R-2S40-TP ballast for sale for $7 each.

Thanks joe, are the mark 3s full power ballasts? I have a mark 2 and it is.

@WWHID they would be two lamp ballasts.

If you can't find the specific ballast you're after... Just keep lookout for any ballast that has a line current of 0.80a as these are considered full power for 2 lamp magnetic RS ballast.

I have plenty of spare Advance Mark III ballasts plus few other brands.  They are 0.73A but drive lamps close to full power.  They're used and don't have full-length leads, but they do work.  If you (or anyone else) is interested, feel free to send me a message.

I have a good few Advance Mark III ballasts, Universal Therm-O-Matic/Therm-O-Matic X 446-LR-TC-P ballasts, as well as a number of other brand/models of ballasts I'd be willing to give up. If you're only interested in ballasts with full length leads, I can hook you up with those too (though most of my Mark III and Therm-O-Matic ballasts do already have full length leads).
