XM2 video Light

I have been recently given an XM2 to start up a wedding video business. Used to work with someone who had this as a back up camera and never used it and no longer requires it. I am borrowing indefinately.

Now i am trying to build up my own kit, I want to know if anyone has tried the LED light bulbs in there existing light housings. I have seen them advertised on ebay, and claim to only use 6watts of power to give you an equivilant of 50 watts power. is this true? are they anygood?

I have seen some lights that draw straight from the camcorders own battery. Can I get this set up for the XM2? I have an IDX light that was also given to me and want to combine the XM2 light with the LED bulb drawing from the battery on the camcorder. Is this possible?
