Hey guys I picked up a cheap 240v HPS 1000w light for cheap on craiglist. I know I can wire up a 220v outlet and it will work, but do you think a transformer would work. I see many for converting 110v > 220v. From 500w - 5000w. I know to "strike" the bulb and turn it on it requires around 4500v. Then once its lit up it drops down to 220v or 110v depending on the light you have.
