ENG-style light recommendations?

Can anyone recommend an affordable ENG-style (wedding-style) light I can buy? Affordable is the key word here. :-)

Heath,
How about one of the Sony 10W/20W hot shoe lights that is powered by (its own) Sony camcorder battery on the back. Then what you do is use the LumiQuest Mini Soft Box ($20) over the light to soften and disperse it. I believe the LumiQuest has some sort of adhesive tape on it. Some guys only use the 10W
when not using a box but you'll maybe need the 20W as the
box'll cut down the light just a bit.
If you go this route, let us know how it worked out.

But how would I power it? It's for Sony, I thought...Hmm, I'll investigate.

That light uses its own onboard battery, the Sony NPF-960 series. So it has its own power. If you chose that solution, you'd need the light, at least one battery, and some sort of charger.

There are flashlights for $20 that have about 5 LEDs and others at $50 that have about 12 LEDs.

I would pull the LED heads off and use a few of the heads with diffusers. Then place the batteries in a pack.

Color temp?

Adjustable intensity?Others are working on this.

Hmmm...I may not be technically wise enough to do that, but I'll talk to a friend of mine who is!

THANKS!
