Default Portable LPS

Since low pressure sodium is the most efficient light bulb, I've been trying to find portable versions I can use as a flashlight, with no success. There are ones that run on 12V DC but are too large and with too high wattage to be used as a flashlight. Are there any really low wattage LPS bulbs?

More efficient than white LED?

Those who claim to be making history are often the same ones repeating it.

Are you out of your mind?

white LED: 15-25 lumens/W
halogen: 25 lumens/W
HID (mercury, etc.): 30-40 lumens/W
red LED: 40 lumens/W (there is a special one around 100)
fluorescent: 60-100 lumens/W
HPS: 100-150 lumens/W
LPS: 175-200 lumens/W
