You need a battery that will supply at least 3 amps for say 2 hours.

I suggest you look at the lithium batteries used for RC aircraft, a 4 cell will give you around 12 volts.

NOTE you will also need a suitable charger for this type of cells. They can be dangerous if not charged properly

Alternatively a small lead acid battery perhaps for a motor bike should be OK.

Is that an incandescent lamp? Replace it with LED's and it won't be a problem

If you did not use LED's for the job you might need a trailer for the battery.
So as with most request here: Make sure to provide the details people need to answer your questions as our crystal balls are getting hazy from overuse.

You, and we, need to know the wattage of the lights OR the current drawn.

Likely this is on a lable or the box the light came in.

Tell us more and we might have a better idea.
