I'm guessing the Digibee is ~40W. That's close to the minimum I'd expect (60W would be my starting point). The important thing is not to pretend it's useful for video. So don't worry about fan noise and I don't want to change the colour temperature.

The Elinchrom 1 is 20W which doesn't cut it for me, Also I think it has to be a mains device. The ELC125 with a 60W COB is closer to what I'm after.

The Paul C Buff DigiBee has a 75 LED modeling light. It puts out 6000 lumens.  That's about the same as a 400 W incandescent bulb.

if you like continuous light, you can use the modeling light on the DigiBees and not bother with the strobe.   This gives you continuous light with access to the complete line of Paul Buff modifiers.
