    The Digi Bee

    with 2x B1600 lights, and whatever the kit offers...
    they dont seem like they are able to work on a battery pack though... or am i mistaken?

    The most promising seems to be the 500/500 by Elichrom...

    any ideas or other recommendations?

    Seems like you have a good understanding of what's out there and what you want. You'll be extremely happy with the Elichroms, I'm sure.
