What kind of plug does the Daystar AC come with and how long is the cord? Also, do you know the weight of this reflector? Thank you for your help!
The plug is a Hydrofarm style plug, see this guide http://127.0.0.1/expertadvice/ballast-reflector-compatibility.html, and it is 15' long. Pretty much every reflector has a 15' cord. The weight is 15.1 lbs.
what kind of bulbs can i use. plan to use 250-400 watt hps lights and would i need a ballast
You can use anything from 250-1000 watts in this hood. You will need a ballast that can run the same wattage as the bulb you purchase.
The Daystar AC is the answer for those wanting high performance coupled with maximum air cooling potential. Utilizing the same patented double wall design and reflective material as our flagship Daystar unit, the "AC" adds two 6" built-on flanges for cooling air flow from an optional fan. The 6" diameter encompasses most of the tunnel-like interior ensuring more complete air flow than common air cooled units. This combination allows for closer plant placement plus better growth, and improved ability to control growing area temperatures.
Reflector Size: 7-3/8"H x 12-1/2"W x 22-1/2"L
