LED's Lighting

Since 99% of my shooting is in no electricity areas and many times have to carry equipment myself , I am in search of a fixture that provide some additional lighting on talent on overcast days or when in a shaded setting.
Need very low power consumption, preferably 12v source (gel cells) or 120 volts via inverter.

I am looking at LED's bulbs/fixtures eg. http://www.trulyled.com/

It appears LED's are at 7,000 K and I never see a CRI rating on them. Is this a concern? Will they provide enough lumens for my needs?

Anyway, if anyone has been down this path before, I would like to hear your thoughts.

7000K is really blue and I would be concerned if the manufacturer doesn't list CRI at all. If they make you write to find out what it is, many times they don't even know themselves and may ask you what CRI means. There are plenty of other LEDs available. Stick to the ones more in the 5000K - 6000K range and that list their CRI.
