unlike older style mag ballast, which requires proper hookup on the fluorsecent tube filament section (pre-heating required) in order to strike and start the lighting process, electronic ballast uses high frequency and higher startup voltage to excite the tube to start the process....

Because of that (no preheating required), electronic ballast works out to be a little better in my case.

My 2c's worth.
