I need a lead acid battery replacement for my 1 million candle power spot light.

If you pull the battery, you should be able to match it at a battery specialty store like BatteriesPlus or The Battery Store (both are chains in my area that sell specialty replacement batteries). Someone there should also be able to suggest alternative batteries if an exact match can't be found. It's almost certain that multiple manufacturers make a battery with comparable voltage and amperage characteristics; the finicky part is finding a battery that has the right terminal placement.

It's worth looking at substantially similar batteries. Sometimes, a battery with slightly different terminals will cost a fraction of the price of an exact match. If that's the case, it may be worth your while to engineer a little adapter wire so you can use the cheaper alternative in your light.

On a final note, once you know the standard description for your battery, you can often find the cheapest replacements online. Speaking generally, this size lead-acid battery is used in many UPS devices, though those cells may have different terminals. However, if you go shopping online, be aware that the cost to ship a lead acid battery may eat up any savings in price from shopping locally. In addition, if there's a problem with the replacement battery, it will be more difficult and more expensive to return/exchange it than if you purchase one from a local shop.

Good luck!

What tip polarity do I use to connect an after market charger?

The short answer is "The tip should be set to positive (+).

I found an old Vector VEC127Y Spotlight. It appeared to be in perfect condition but the battery was dead and there was no charger. I was able to buy a replacement battery at BatteriesPlus for $21 USD. Here is the link for the battery
I also purchased a Universal A/C adapter to use as a charger at BatteriesPlus for $17 USD. Their site does not list it yet but here is the manufacturers link. Please note the original battery was rated 6Ah. The replacement is only rated for 5Ah. Which means one less Amp hour (Ah). Which means a shorter run time, after charging, than the original battery had. Otherwise they are equal.
I installed the new battery. I set the AC Adapter to 6V and installed the largest of the seven adapter tips that came with the charger, with TIP set to be positive (+). I opened the battery compartment of the spotlight and disconnected both the red (positive +) and black (negative -) battery leads from the battery. I then plugged the adapter tip of the Universal AC Adapter into the spotlight and plugged the AC Adapter plug to a power outlet. With a multimeter I tested the polarity of the spotlight battery leads while charging. I was able to confirm that the Adapter TIP should be set to positive (+). After reconnecting the spotlight battery leads and setting the AC Adapter to charge, I have a perfectly great spotlight in full working order.

LED Flashlight Battery Drain Problem

This particular flashlight uses a microchip that consumes the power of the batteries, whether in use or not. Loosen the case to where the batteries go in, so there is no contact with polarity. Or just take the batteries out completely and replace them for actual use.
