    Sorry was high Thought you wanted to know what a mogul socket was

    I believe the adapters allow you to use bigger watt bulbs in regualr sockets? But not positive.

    LMAO Im sittin here tryin to figure out who tom green is and if i know him cause Ive only seen the word Core:bitz in 2 places. One is when i type it and the other is in refrence to an obscure but very talented DJ Core:Bitz of core energy productions. He was big around the turn of the century (hehe 1999-2001) I think hes still spinning. That was a hoot FF or X or TG or whatever teh hell your name is. Glad it rocked your corebitz.

    mogul bases are there to support larger heaver bulbs so they dont break off at the base. standered basese are not meant to support incandecent lights burning horizontly (these are the plastic or paper and tin sockets were talkin about) When we move up to a 3LB CFL its wise to use a more supportive base like a mogul socket made for holdign the weight of a HID and also insulated for heat (so you can mount it hor). There is no voltage diference between the two. A word to the wise if you buy these there kinda pricey, keep the box so you can use your warenty when it burns out, and it will.

    Just a few questions for you smart guys. I went to home depot and could not find any socket/fixture that was anything over 100 watts. So where can I find a normal fixture that is 125 or can someone explain how to hard wire this for a noob. Can I just go to home depot and find a 125 ballast or something, then put one wire in the center and the other on the screw part of the bulb. Does it matter where the + and go when connecting to the bulb?

    What would be perfect is a socket that then turned strait into a power cord so I can just dangle the light. Like one of these (scroll down to the "Prewired Mogul Socket"

    would this work? http://www.farmtek.com/webapp/wcs/st...7C17155&isDoc=


    I was under the impression that you need a ballest like a HID for this bulb to work???

    In most cases, you won't find those @ HD or Lowes; will probably have to order them from the link you posted.

    The larger bulbs like the 125w in that link, need a seperate adapter to screw into the lampholder in order to operate. The prewired mogul socket should work fine as well.
