One of my favorite lighting companies, Profoto, just announced an upgrade to their small form factor monolights. Called the B10x and B10x Plus, these lights can be used for both filming videos and for shooting stills. Both lights are smaller in size and lighter than the B1x, but the B10x Plus can put out 500ws.
The smaller size is an ideal choice for location photography and motion. Small lights are easier to place and lighter to carry. Your sets can be more nimble so you can spend more time being creative.
I personally don’t think the 250ws B10x would be useful for anything other than portraits. For a little bit more money, I’d go for the 500ws B10x Plus and get a full stop more of light.
