Good Ballast, breaker warning

Good ballast so far does what it says it does but a fair warning is if you have Square D GFCI breakers this will trip them, doesn't matter what voltage it will trip it as I've tried 175-250's and the 250-400 ballasts of luxcore. I had galaxy e-ballasts before hand with 0 tripping and this one trips it 100% of the time. I ended up replacing the GFCI breaker with a normal one and put a GFCI on the outlets which it doesn't trip (Square D's GFCI's are exteremly sensitive so no idea what the galaxys never tripped it) but just a fair warning to people out there with square d breakers (experience with the homeline not the QO line)

Halide now works

Had to replace a failed magnetic ballast for 250 watt metal halide lamp. Need to rewire for the different connector to the light but worked fine. Much less heat than magnetic ballast. Have not tried the super lumens output.
