    Hi,

    Is there anybody that can tell me if I can use the 39W lights in the 54w Ballast?

    And if so, is it going to have an effect on the life of the light?

    Hope you can help?

    Norman

    Usually it will effect the lights spectrum.

    It will work , it won't "pop" the bulbs but will shorten the life of the bulbs.
