looking for a battery operated flashlight for Dillon 550 machine

Anyone seen such an animal as referenced in the title? My machine gets moved from a shelf to my desk to my shelf. I have seen where corded versions are available but I am looking for a battery operated version. /:f

I use something similar to this:

I attach it with a zip tie and it lights up the area pretty well. I have it aimed around the bullet seating stage is to verify powder.

This Harbor Freight one might be a bit better:

Great minds think alike! I use the same Home Depot flashlight for my press.
