Where can you get 125w mercs in the US? « on: July 11, 2016, 07:53:43 PM » Author: Lumex120
I would like a few for a dual lamp fixture I plan on building soon. I checked all the distributors like elightbulbs and none of them had them. I also want a true 125w lamp and not those Utilitech lamps from Lowes. Does anyone know of a good place to get them new?

Check uk eBay. Occasionally they come up. Do you have proper ballasts?

Nope, but I would use 100w PSMH ballasts without ignitors.

Ok, I found where you can get them:

https://www.lightbulbdepot.com/products/details/?item=00785A&watts[]=0+~%7C~+No+Max&volts[]=0+~%7C~+No+Max&subId[]=269&sortBy=default&pageNum=2&itemsPerPage=10&offset=16&returnPage=products%2F

they are somewhat expensive though.

It's a Canadian site, though. Not sure if they ship to the US or how expensive shipping would be if they do.

I bought two 125w mercs on eBay, quality Japanese EYE stuff on eBay, so I'd say it's the way to go.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

The merc from light bulb depot is not a bad price.
I have shop there before, it best shop there in person
Than dealing online.  But 30 buck for 125 watt merc is not a bad price really.  Even u got it on UK Ebay
It will cost just as much.  Also some of Regent bucket
Lights use 125 watt mercs. Wich i own in my collection
125 watt and 80 watt mercs do come up now and then

Really? There's even a Light Bulbs Unlimited somewhere here, it seems like they exist solely in Florida.
