I'm looking for a reputable online source for a replacement ballast for an AC-MH50-UVS electronic ballast

Found a few websites that sell them but I have never ordered from them before

Has anyone ever ordered from ballasts.com or blocklighting.com?

thanks in advance

I see your point, who stocks anything any more, plus their proud of their
prices.

This is the ballast I need a replacement for



Trying to get one by Friday at the latest

Can only do the job on Sunday so was hoping I could get one ordered today

Guess I will call around Monday and see if anyone local has one

I'd call the number on that ballast. It should have a date code, and it might be under warranty. I had one from them (I think it was them) once that was under warranty and they were great about getting out the replacement.

I cant do that.

They must have had another electrician out to look at this light and they took the ballast out of it but never returned for the repair

I had to open another light and get the information from it

I find what i need from their site and then send the link to my distributed. He gets me the same or better pricing, I get 30 day terms and keep in my volume pricing.

I like that. Instead of shopping at the bricks and mortar and then purchasing on-line, you shop on-line and then purchase from the bricks and mortar.

That distributor is paying business tax and employing people in your city. Thumbs up to you! :thumbsup:

Well.....1000bulbs.com was a bust

Just received a phone call saying they were out of stock on that ballast and wouldn't be receiving any till the end of the month

I called the number on the original ballast and the manufacturer sells direct so I should have a direct replacement by Friday.
