    Hi all,long time since i have been on.
    Im in need of a solution, i need to get a ballast for my odyssea 4ft T5 unit, has anyone got one for sale or a solution to get the two globes to work with another ballast that can be made up to power them.

    Thanks Brad

    Any T5 ballast unit should work. Can get Osram from electrical wholesalers for example.

    But you do get basically 2 different lengths. Try to get the same one. If you go from the longer type to the shorter type you might end up with wires on the one side that is too short.

    Okay so a 54w ballast from any electrical shop will be fine for each tube and then it should work?

    54 watt electronic ballast will do. You can can a dual ballast that can run both tubes

    you do get T5 electronic ballast for a single tube. But the double version do not cost that much more than the single. And that is what we normally use.

    And yes, from any electrical supplier. Update your location under your profile and maybe some guys can direct you to a shop in your area. If they know whereabouts you stay.
