Customer Questions & Answers

Can this bulb be replaced with a LED light in the same fixture?

Asked by: 007
As I understand it, you have to bypass the ballast (a bit of re-wiring), then for about $100 there is an LED replacement, but those bulbs are rated to last about 5 -10 times longer than the metal halide bulbs, so if you use this replacement method, it will pay for itself in lower electricity costs in 2-3 years, depending on the cost of electricity in your area and the number of hours the bulb is on per day.

Are you sure this product has a 20,000 hour life as advertised on the site? I have been to the store and they all state 10,000 hour life.

Asked by: Pensoil
Data on this lamp states 10k hours. This is a misprint on the site. It will be corrected.

can this bulb be used in a mercury vaper fixture?

Asked by: jamaica014
Hey jamaica014, In short, no the 175-Watt Metal Halide Light Bulb will not work in a mercury vapor fixture. All High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs work this way, they have to have the same bulb in order for them to operate. On the packaging, you'll notice the label that states: Use only for ANSI ballast type.... This means while the bulb will fit, it won't light up at all. You have to have the exact ballast (which means same light) as what you have now, a mercury vapor bulb to go into the mercury vapor fixture. Hope this has assisted you, Joseph
