Best Spotlight Solution

I'm looking into a good hard-wired spotlight solution to mount on a KLR.

Preferably this torch would not have a battery, (as it would be hard-wired) to save on weight. I'd have multiple other small (and bright) flashlights for other uses. This is just to light up the night sky.

I want one at 15 million candlepower or higher.

Anyone have any insight or experience with this sort of thing?

Thank you!

*p.s. - I'm new to this forum, and although the content appears fantastic and community well connected, the search function leaves a lot to be desired. I spent some time searching keywords to see if someone else had explored this sort of topic, only to find no way to search individual sub-forums (for example, this one with the topic of equipment). If anyone wants to help me become a better searcher I'm all for the help in that regard, as the worst is when a newbie shows up to a site and asks a bunch of questions that could have been easily answer if they had searched.

15 million candela? where are you going to get that from? the most ive seen at a reasonable price is 3 million, but they were battery powered flashlights.

if looking for a 12v light, perhaps a boat chandlers?

hmm, i presume youve done an internet search for spotlights and not come up with anything? you must be able to get them somewhere but 15million? you could burn away rain clouds with that bad boy
