    NO means Normal Output, VHO means Very High Output. for example, a 4 foot NO lamp is 40 watts, however a 4 foot VHO lamp is 110 watts. VHO is just brighter, and more powerful.

    But the Very high output is actually the ballast...and it works on any kind of tube or only with VHO tubes?

    it will work with NO, VHO, and HO lamps, not just VHO. VHO is the most efficiant however, and NO and HO dont last as long and run hotter.

    Mine came with the ballast. The VHO bulb is a compact flourescent. They are usually found sold as street lights. Theyare mogul base. (The basethat looks like a standard but is larger)
