Default Sunbeam CCFL

Hi, i had a blue CCFL from Revoltec and i bought 2 blue Sunbeam CCFL's. I know it is best to use a revoltec inverter with a revoltec CCFL right? dont mix up brands, because the Revoltec CCFL draws more power to it then the Sunbeam CCFL. Well now, I accedentialy did that and the inverter got fried a bit, u know, smelly and all.
Sunbeam inverters aren't very stable with other products i think...

I'm planning on making a switch with a led to switch on/off the CCFL. Is that possible with a Sunbeam CCFL+inverter? does any1 have experience with Sunbeam CCFL modding? Don't feel like frying another inverter

thx in advance

i've read on another forum, a guy with the same problem i have, he mailed to sunbeam and they told him this:
in order to make the ccfl brighter, they tweaked the inverter but did not had time to test it, as a result of that, some inverters get to hot and burn out...
