Does anybody know if the Advance ballasts that were made for low pressure sodium lamps considered autoleak ballasts?

   First  reason is we have to step the voltage up to run the sox
 Lamp.  So it made more sense to make them leak ballast
  To eliminate the ignitor as it just another fail point to maintain
  them.  Therefore it increase reiabilty.

There is not much other way to run them on 120V, except electronic.
