    Can WH7/ARO-220 ballast run NO fluorescent bulbs ?

    I would like to know if it's possible and if there are any risks (i.e. fire....etc) in doing it ?

    The following are listed as supported on the WH7 ballast:
    # 4 X 13W T8 Linear
    # 4 X 14W T8 Linear
    # 4 X 30W T8 Linear
    # 3 X 58W T8 Linear

    So, probably yes.

    But, will it work any better than a $10 ballast, I don't know.
    Plus, you will have to run 3 or 4 all at the same time.
