The SmallRig RC 120B Bi-Color LED Monolight (2-Light Kit) looks like a decent option if you are after a compact two-light kit that doesn’t weigh much or take up a lot of space.
I am not sure why more lighting companies don’t offer kits as they are especially useful if you travel a lot or when you are working as a solo shooter.

The RC 120B Bi-Color LED Monolight 2-Light Kit could be used for both still and video work. The kit includes two RC 120B units with a V-mount adapter plate for battery power. You can also power the fixtures using the included AC/DC power supply or a 14.4/26V battery using an optional D-Tap to 3-pin XLR power cord. The lights draw just 150W so you can use flight-safe batteries to power the fixtures at 100% output.
The RC 120B features a CCT range of 2700K to 6500K. The integrated cooling fan turns on automatically to prevent the light from overheating, and they are claimed to be relatively quiet.
There are nine effect modes and because the lights have a Bowens S-mount, you can use readily available and affordable modifiers. You can adjust the lights via onboard controls or through the SmallGoGo app.
As far as output is concerned, the lights are able to produce 4450 lux at 3.3′ / 1m when used open face, or 52,800 lux when used with their included reflectors.
