You said cheap but did not mention a budget so cheap is a relative thing but here's a couple to consider.

Try the Sony 10/20W. It seems to be the best light for the money however you'll still need a couple of the big batteries for it. (more money)
If you don't mind being tethered to a battery belt you might look at the Bescor or NRG lights. Both are good values.

I recommend you go peruse the lighting forum her on DV Info Net. Lots of discussion about lights, both shop-built and purchased.
