Ross_kim, I have the 3 Million Candle power unit, too. Man, it's like waking around with automobilehigh beams on! Daylight at midnight! Anyway, regarding replacement source for Vector Spot battery "SEL DMU6-6": CarlGlas's advice points to a slightlydifferent and inferior product: you had 6ah, the suggestion provides 4.5ah. I found this replacement: the Tempest TR6-6 at BatterySpec @http://www.batteryspec.com/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?action=link&product=313. (I suggest avoiding their TR6-6A for Vectors Spotlights: it's a littlebigger, and may not fit. Also, BatterySpec suggests the Tempest 5-6A as anequivalent for the original "SEL DMU 6-6"; that's only equivalent if5ah=6ah. Caveat Emptor) You can see the actual specs on this product at (themanufacturer) Tempest's web site: http://www.tempestbatteries.com/html/tr6-6.html. This seems to be a virtually identical battery as Vector'soriginal "SEL DMU 6-6" in every way butone. Vector's battery had one F1 (.187"wide) terminal, and one F2 (.250" wide) terminal. On the BatterySpec's Tempest, both terminalsare F1. This was no problem: the Vectorlamp's leads snap snug and secure over both terminals. I paid $10.90, plus $10.13 shipping, ordered on Saturdaymorning 10/23, got a shipping confirmation from their San Jose CA warehouseMonday evening 10/25, and received it in Virginia on Monday morning11/1/2010.

In March, 2006, Black & Decker purchased Vector Products, Inc. Since the acquisition, Black & Decker has assumed the manufacturing of all Vector products. For customer service and warranty information for Vector products, please contact Black & Decker Customer Service. Or, you can order a replacement battery from: www.batterymart.com/p-6v-4_5ah-sealed-lead-acid-battery.html

    marrazzo, thanks for bringing this deficiency to my attention. While the battery I recommended would work, it wouldn't last as long between charges. Also, thanks for the sites. I need to order replacement 12 v 12 Ah batteries for my UPS.

    I contacted Black & Decker and got a response saying the spotlight is an old model and they carry no replacement parts.

LOOKING FOR SEL DMU 6-6 6V6AH BATTERY FOR THE VECTOR MEGA SPORT SPOT LIGHT


jwgbounder,
despite the relatively recent acquisition,
apparently Black & Decker no longer services Vector products either.
They sold their Vector line to Baccus Global LLC as of about August 2010
(see http://support.blackanddecker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5771 ).

I have the same lamp you do, and here's how I recently replaced my battery.
Replacement source for Vector Spot battery "SEL DMU6-6":
the Tempest TR6-6 at BatterySpec
@http://www.batteryspec.com/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?action=link&product=313 .
(I suggest avoiding their TR6-6A for Vectors Spotlights: it's a little bigger, and may not fit.
Also, BatterySpec suggests the Tempest 5-6A as an equivalent for the original "SEL DMU 6-6";
that's only equivalent if5ah=6ah. Caveat Emptor).
You can see the actual specs on this product at (the manufacturer)
Tempest's web site: http://www.tempestbatteries.com/html/tr6-6.html.
This seems to be a virtually identical battery as Vector's original "SEL DMU 6-6" in every way but one.
Vector's battery had one F1 (.187"wide) terminal,
and one F2 (.250" wide) terminal.
On the BatterySpec's Tempest, both terminals are F1.
This was no problem: the Vector lamp's leads snap snug and secure over both terminals.
I paid $10.90, plus $10.13 shipping, ordered on Saturday morning 10/23,
got a shipping confirmation from their San Jose CA warehouse Monday evening 10/25,
and received it in Virginia on Monday morning 11/1/2010.

11/5 update: battery charged, and the lamp works great.

I have a Vector 2,000,000 Power Series Spotlight and I need a new battery. The current battery is SEL sealed lead- acid. The number is DMU 3-12 12v 3AH. I have been unable to find this battery...


There is good news and bad news concerning a replacement battery for this particular model light.
The good news is that a suitable, but not exact, replacement will be available at Battery Mart on November 30, 2010.
The bad news is that it cost $29.95.
http://www.batterymart.com/p-sla-1039-12-volt-2-3-ah-sealed-lead-acid-battery.html

I purchased about a dozen of these lights in 2006 and have had them in storage since. No one can or will be more unhappy than I should all of them need new batteries.

Replacement battery for a Vector # VEC137R flashlight


You can order it from Black and Decker, Vector sold all their product lines to them in 2006 and they carry the replacement battery cheaper than anywhere else I found.

Finding a SEL DMU 6-6 battery for spotlight


I just ordered 5 batteries of same size and spec from:
http://www.atlantalightbulbs.com/ecart/nw012104/YUNTONGYT-660(6V6AH.20HR.htm
$9.34 per plus shipping.

I found another compatable but it was only a 5 Amp/hr battery. The above link is a direct replacement for the SEL DMU 6-6 6V6AH battery that came with the dual spotlight.

Measurements, electrodes exactly the same..

They just call it a YT-660 made by Yutong...

You are welcome...
