I think something like that is probably one of the better options for running a light.
The 18 watt light I am looking at is 1850 lumens IIRC.
The battery I have is 150 cubic inches and 11-12 lbs.
And I still might end up having to use an external battery charger.

What about those wheel spinning generator things from the bikes of the 1980s.
