Color flashlight

Does anyone here do night photography with color flashlights? I know that pros use color gels like these [IMG]http://flashgels.co.uk/images/gel-fan-2.jpg[/IMG]
But I would like to find the cheapest possible way (RFD, right? ;) ) to do the same. I'm thinking of RGB flashlights and long exposure. But I can't find anything really cheap (under $20).
Led lights for 110V with remote and 16 colors are only $10 now. There must be someone who sells similar things, but working from a battery!
I'm looking to achieve results seimilar to this one:

I've seen light painting before and even tried it myself. But I have to say - those are absolutely amazing!

Sorry I can't help - haven't personally seen or heard of battery RGB lights. You could buy a decent size flashlight and still use gels in front, though!

Would a dc to ac converter work ?
I wouldn't want to mess with 110 volts outdoors. Too much of a chance of getting it wet and electrocuting myself. :facepalm:
