Recommend a good portable key light?

I have two dedolights but need a stronger third light. I was wondering if someone could recommend a key light that is almost as portable as the Dedo's and within a 370/$500 budget?

Thanks

I use a Lowel Rifa EX55 (which as a kit if above your stated budget but the EX44 may well be within) as my key light for most of my interviews. Before that I had good results with my Lowel ProLight's in 250 watts with a bit of frost on them. Depends if you're looking for hard key or soft key. I assume your dedo's are 150 watts.
