In my neck of the woods there are some 240V

West German flouresent ballasts. ..pretty

small in size when compared to some former

English ballasts which lasted for upwards

of 8 years. These W G ballasts have a life

time of approx 3 years. Is there a way to

test these ballasts ? Thanks for any info.

If they have a lifetime of 3 years, they have outlived themselves by a decade ;-)
