If you check Amazon.co.uk there are or at least were some independents that supply via Amazon for immediate despatch in this country

This is one I bought for messing around in the studio  Available next day but you will need to get a battery seperately unless you happen to have one.

Just bought some from flea bay that were allegedly from a Portsmouth based supplier.

However they were from a Chinese supplier who Im reasonably sure was based in the UK as they arrived in 2 working days via Fedex
They also has a warehouse in Germany

Incredibly cheap for not bad quality; being under £150 for equivalent 3000w of lighting makes them almost disposable!

I also had a problem with one of the bulbs being bust which they worked hard to sort out

I've a couple of small and neat, well-made German 300w lamps I don't use. I've only used 60w bulbs in them as back lights. They seem to get hot with 300w bulbs. I have plenty of bulbs, dichroics and the lamps have safety glass in them, barn doors, flood and spot, one stand, camera mounts and handles etc.

Let me know if you're interested

I've been using 85watt ( 500watt ) fluorescent bulbs,Daylight balanced at 5800. just replace the modelling bulbs in studio flash heads, and can the use existing reflectors etc.Run very cool. I found using two bulbs in studio ample. This my latest effort using that set up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i45Flxl0jgU
