Just cleaned up my display case, and added LIGHTING!

If I understand correctly, the light that is illuminating the case is a Malkoff M60LF, but what is the behemoth on top of the case? It looks like something that could put out 3000 lumens, or perhaps even start a bushfire!

It puts out close to 5000 lumens. It was a clearance item on the shelf at O'reilly auto parts, marked down to $30. I saw the HID bulb and knew I'd leave with it, but I asked the guy at the counter if he minded if I tested it. He said it was fine, so I switched it on and nothing happened. He offered to sell it to me for $16 since it wasn't in "working condition". I happily accepted. I discovered it was just the battery, so I swapped in one I had laying around and it fired right up. I then upgraded the bulb and ballast to a 55W 4500k setup.

I saw this case at Ike's and thought it would make a great display case for lights! As you have proven, it does indeed!
