Not good, thats a 50 watt metal halide ballast which will overdrive 50 watt mercury lamps, you need to have a magnetic 35/39w MH ballast to run 50 watt mercury lamps for best results. Its because of the current (Amps) differences between the two types

Look at the Seller's photos, the description is WRONG! The ballast IS a 50w H-46 mercury vapor !!!! I just made an offer on 1 .

This seller has 4 total available, we need to snap up ALL OF THESE !

I debated buying one as a spare but I decided to pass since I already had one. Looks like they went quickly.
