It sounds like the battery has just enough "juice" to give the small light some power, but when the larger light is turned on it overloads the bad (or expired) battery. When you put a new battery in you can extend the life by not using the light when the battery starts to die. This is when it starts to permanently damage the battery. Turn it off and recharge as soon as it dims. Charge often, but don't leave on the charger too long unless it is a smart charger and turns off when the battery is fully charged. This will also reduce the life. You can find a replacement battery here: http://batteryinternational.com/spotlight-batteries-vector-battery.html

I have a vector 1 mil candlepower sport spotlight haven't charged it in a while,and doesn't seem to want to charge.Does this mean the battery pack is bad?


Unfortunately the batteries lose their ability to charge when not used for an extended period of time. The light is very simple to dismantle by removing the black rubber ring that holds the lens on and then removing the screws. I believe the following battery may be the replacement you need.

My Vector Flash light is not working, I have tried to fix localy in Santa Barbara, but was unable, there is a place to send them to be fixed, my model is Sport Spot 3 million, thanks


Baccus just bought Vector from Black & Decker (Sept. 2010)
Looks like flashlight model # VEC 139BW but a different color. (Mine is White w/blue trim.) There is a battery in the top & one in the bottom, replace them at the same time. If I can find several battery stores in Buffalo you should be able to find a local battery store there.
Baccus- 877-571-2391 for main beam, area light no longer available. Try to find local distributor & save shipping charges.

Spot light is unable to recharge with the wall


While it could be the battery, it could also be the internal charger in the spotlight. When you plug it in, it bypasses the charger and uses the connected power. However, it is likely just a bad battery. The batteries only last 3 years in an ideal setting and since these lights are typically only used certain times of the year, the batteries discharge and go bad.

Dead battery


It depends on what voltage the internal battery is. If it's a 6 volt, the charging voltage will be a little higher, close to 6.5 to 7 volts. Most of these spotlights are 6 volt.
