Battery powered grow light?

you need at least 12 hours of light.

The light were using now uses 3 AAA batteries and lasts for 4 14 hour sessions before it dies. Were not sure the light is strong enough though...
That light probably sucks. Growing MJ takes some wattage.
Battery powered lights dont really exist for grow lights...to much juice.

I don't think that their is such a thing as you are asking about. Other than maybe one of those portable closet light bulb things that you could use a cfl with but that would use tons of batteries and the yield would be dismall. Like you would probably spend way more in batteries than you would ever get from the plant.
Hope it helps not trying to be rude or anything just want to help steer you right.

Ok well thanks guys. Ill take a look at the guilds but I have a few questions, how many watts should I use of lighting per plant? Can I use a regular bulb or will LED or other types work better? What is the best light cycle for veg and flowering? Should I use the same lighting cycle for just sprouting plants as regular ones?
Reg bulbs no...give off light but no grow spectrum. There are 2 kinds of CFls they sell at Home Depot lowes, Walmart. One is 6500k called Daylight bulbs, other is 2700k Softwhite. Daylight for vegging, softwhite for flowering.
Veging you can do 24/7 lights, flowering has to be 12/12. No 12/12 no flowering..no bud. Unless you have a autoflower which flowers on its own.
Rule of thumb tends to be 100watts for 1st plant, 50 for each additional..more is better.

But only for a day at most.
Shit, i wonder if you could do a solar powered LED grow....theres those new LEDs in development too that are like 100x brighter.
Man, growing weed in the future is gonna be sick.

For the CFLs do I still need the 200 watts for 3 plants and if so how can i set it up?
Dude read and look at the grow journals. Its easy. You take a light plug it into a clamp or socket put it near the plant..easy.

Seriously man, dont bother growing unless you have a secure place. Plus you guys clearly haven't thought through the entire grow process; how will you deal with the smell? Where will you cure? How will you flush out your pots? Just dont do it man it isnt worth it.

grow over 99 plants.
When the feds bust in, blame it on your parents and get away with the profit.
You can do it, start young and go strong!
