You may use 4 tubes of 4W in parallel, but if you want to increase its capacity, you need to wind up a new transformer, and not an inductor. You must also check the Watt- Rating of the Transistor that powers the transformer...if you need more help regarding this.....you may contact me....

As we all know in India we still use conventional chokes and ignitors to illuminate 400watt HID lamps. Is there any electronic alternative to the same application? Cheers
