    Ultra bright LED off a battery supply.

    Hello. Can anyone tell me how to run an ultra bright, even car headlamp if possible, off a battery source? Battery supply needs to be as small as possible, small enough to fit inside an item about the size of a cigar tube and the bulb needs to be no wider than about 10mm. Any ideas?
