Bescor 20 & 40w dc light

I am looking at getting the Bescor 20/40w light kit, 6v for doing interviews, and for close work. (mostly cause this is what I can afford at this time) Any comments on this light pro or con would be appreciated.

Harry,
I use a Bescor 50W DC/100W AC with a juice box (75-90 minute) or a belt (2-3 hours) and for most weddings I usually end up having to diffuse it down to about a 20 watt lite. I've been using it for quite a while and have no problem with it at all. Not the same light you're looking at but I'm happy with the Bescor product.

I think I have the same one as that guy, but it might be DC. Wattage is the same however. I think it rocks, especially for the price and the duration you can get out the battery (at 50 watts, an hour and 20 mins).

Bescor

I've just got the 20/40 bescor on cam light. Pretty Bright stuff. Using a GL2. Does anyone no of a diffuser for it to make it less hot and softer for interviews?
