    Help Best modern LED for 6 volt battery

    I am thinking of upgrading a cheap plastic searchlight (the type you can get at the grocery store cheap) with a modern LED. It runs on a 6 volt battery that has no markings on it other than the voltage on top. The reflector is large but not very deep and therefore I dont expect any kind of throw out of this thing.
    What LED would output the most off of A 6 volt? An XM-L?, SST-90?
    also how many lumens do you honk I could get?

    Is the reflector metal ? There will be some heat.

    I just checked, it's plastic. I guess that kills any hope for my project. Now I just have to put the light back together.
