The maker, Wangtrirat says,â€This is my Home Made Super Cheap Metal Halide Ballast and Igniter can use on Mercury vapor or High pressure Sodium Lamp too.This is Super Cheap System i've made about $33.33 and A Lamp i've bought for $14.54 (all that currency transform from Thai Baht).
This system can power up a 150W Metal Halide lamp by using 4 40W Fluorescent Ballast and ignite with 12V fluorescent ballast for a car that produce about 700V to make the lamp arc over and after that it will power on all ballast and turn off igniter,That's it it's works.All of fluorescent ballast is get hot as it normally use no problem while using.â€
The video is low quality but is interesting:
I have included the circuit diagram he posted:
