I haven't used my idea yet... but you asked.

AA batteries are common. You can find them anywhere in the USA, including backwater small towns. Since they are stored almost everywhere, you don't need to store them in your rig (at least more than 1 or 2 at a time). Just get some replacements in the next town you roll through.

I'm building a DIY mount to hold one of these:

It has decent throw as well as spill and you can use it around camp. If you need more light, 2 should do the trick. As far as cost goes, that's a personal preference matter.
