    “Icecap 250W MH”
    5.0

    I have the Icecap running along side a cheaper imported ballast, and there is a huge difference. The icecap side is much brighter, and coral and coraline colors are much more vivid. The other ballast looks washed out, and more yellow. I'm going to replace the other ballast with an Icecap ASAP!
