How can I fix my rechargeable portable spotlight/flashlight after no charge for 1(one) year?

I brought my Black and Decker Vector 580 lumen spotlight/flashlight #VEC156DB about 2 (two) years ago, after recommended charge of 14 hours I used it twice, then stored in original package for a year and some months. Recently, I recharged for use with standard 120 volt extension cord until green LED light came on the spotlight did not come on. I read the owners manual for troubleshooting. I DID NOT TOUCH, REPLACE OR TAMPER WITH ANY PARTS OF UNIT. The unit will not operate.

The spotlight/flashlight battery may have failed as a result of being unused and not charged periodically.

I replaced the battery in mine(coleman powermate) for 10 bucks but you have to be careful in how you disassemble it and put it back together. Batteries sulfate after awhile like a car battery.

I need the bulb assembly for a Vector VEC 137-C-WM 1,000,000 CP rechargable spotlight


Vector is a part of the Black and Decker company and almost all items with that name are made in China.

I assume you tried to Google the model number for "bulb" or "lamp"

Where can i find a replacement battery for my VEC 117


Vector was acquired by Black & Decker in 2006, and their old website just sends you to the B&D site. I have had no luck finding a replacement battery.

However, Amazon.com still carries the original Vector 1-mil spotlight.
