Can I use an Emergency Ballast as a general purpose battery?

No – It can only be used in conjunction with the running of compatible fluorescent and discharge lamps. The design of an emergency ballast is very specific to its use and would cause damage to the emergency ballast or object it was trying to power if used as a general purpose battery.

Fire could also result in misuse of and Emergency Ballast for any other purpose than its originally intended use. Very precise lamp compatibility charts typically come in the box of an emergency ballast and should be reviewed.
