70 Watt Metal Halide Ballast Kit

70 watt metal halide ballast kits for a complete replacement or retrofit.
Price Each: $88.95

Item Number: BLF14427
70-watt metal halide ballast kits to replace existing core and coil ballasts for this low wattage lamp. These are for standard MH lamps and have everything you need to replace your ballast. These ballast kits will fit in almost any light fixture and that's important because the 70-watt version is often in a smaller light. It's important to be able to position the ballast correctly and we have all the hardware along with the kit that will make it possible to fit it into any light fixture that you have. If you know the bulb is good but the light doesn't come on, you may want to check on the capacitor first as that is a consumable component which does fail over time. Sometimes that's all that needs to be replaced and you don't have to do the whole ballast kit. But if you're light fixture has some age, you probably just need to replace the whole ballast and eliminate any troubleshooting that might end up costing you more in time than just doing the simple replacement.

Product features:
- Multi-tap 120, 208, 240, 277 volt.
- For standard 70-watt metal halide lamps.
- All the components you need to replace existing ballasts.

At, we have a wide variety of ballast kits including metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and mercury vapor. All of these are in the category of HID lighting and one of the consumable items within that category of lighting is ballasts. There are a number of different things that can go wrong with the ballast over time. It could be something like the capacitor, the igniter or the core and coil itself. With the capacitor, it loses the ability to hold a charge large enough to start the arc of the lamp. Sometimes heat becomes a factor which is typically one of the problems that contribute to a ballast failure. We have all different wattages for various types of metal halide lighting from the very lowest 50 watts all the way up to 1500 watt. Understand that these different ballasts can only be matched with one wattage, they don’t run multiple wattages from the same ballast. Many of you in maintenance or if you’re an electrical contractor know this, but some people that we talk to don’t, so we just want to make that clear if you’re unsure as to whether you need to change the ballast and get one of these kits. Please give us a call or email as we have a lot of expertise in ballast replacement and have probably seen about every different type of problem. Changing a ballast kit is really not too difficult although there are a lot of wires and there are just a few things you need to make sure that you do correctly. You want to make sure all the wiring is correct and that it’s connected to the correct voltage on the ballast.
