I bought a $27 rechargeable stand mounted floodlight off Amazon that's amazing. Battery lasts for hours, I've used it for 4-5 hours at a time and not managed to kill it. Comes on a little tiny stand that's flimsy and comes loose, but if you just bend it back and tighten the thumbscrews every time you use it it's fine. Could rig up a bracket to mount it on an old camera tripod from a thrift store easily.

Also I bought the cheapest pair of rechargeable bike lights on Amazon with Micro USB connectors for like $9.99 and have had them for a fucking year now. Usually lasts 2 rides (15 miles average each) before they start to die. Run the front one on half brightness normally.

Here's the floodlight, now up to $27.99 which ain't bad at all: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015E6M23C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Had it since mid November last year according to my purchase history and it still kicks ass.

Bike lights have gone from $9.99 to $12.99 but still worth it. Only had them for 5 months I guess but they're still working after like 500 bails. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0749HZPBL/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If only the bot overlord might consider the legitimacy of being that anal illuminated signal.
