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.

How do I change the battery?


There are two ways to charge the battery on this model spotlight. However, if you do not have the wall charger or cigarette lighter plug you will need to contact Black & Decker to see if they have replacement parts.

Will not turn on. will not charge . when you plug in charger, the battery lights on the side all flash, and you have a loud clicking sound.

Need charging instructions for black & decker model sl1028 type 1


Hello. Use an ordinary extension cord and plug it into the back of the light and into the wall. Charge it for 20-30 hours, but not more than 30 hours. Here is the downloadable manual for future reference
