Hi Folks,

I'm looking for a battery operated lamp to use during workshops that has good color balance. 

Many people use OTT lights. I like them well enough for sketching, but not for watercolor work or direct scientific lighting. I don't like the color the OTT puts out, nor the difficulty getting proper scientific lighting.

This lamp was suggested, but I'm not sold on it either. 

Any suggestions? It has to be cordless.

Thanks for your experience.
