Does this exist ? Where to buy it ? How long does it last ?

Thanks !

Although you could probably jury-rig it, I would think it would be cost-prohibitive to run.

At 10 or 15 watts, a regular Niterider system lasts 2-3 hours, or less, on Ni-Cad or NiMH batteries. In a 6 volt system I would think that you'd burn through 4 D cell batteries in that amount of time - and likely less.
