My light dont come on when im pushing the trigger

The internal control unit will not let the bulb operate if the battery is not up to voltage. To recharge the battery, you will need a 12VDC 300mA adapter. It will take 12 to 15 Hours to charge. If that doesn't work, replace the battery

I haven't used my spot light in a while how long will it take to recharge it????

Depending on how long it's been discharged will determine whether the battery will take a charge. However, there are charging lights on the side which will indicate when the battery has been fully charged. It could take anywhere from 5 to 18 hours, but the charging indicator lights would be the best way to tell.

Vectorlite 1.5 candlepower shines a dim light instead of a bright white light.

Either the battery is not fully charged or it is time to replace it. Try charging the battery. If that doesn't work you will need to dissemble the light to obtain the replacement battery numbers. It should take (2) Model CA645 Batteries. They are 6 volt 4.5 amp hr.

I have been charging my 2 million candle power spot light for last 2 days but full battery charge indicator (red light) does not flash yet. the led white light is working but the main lamp doesn't work....

It should take 10-12 hours, any longer the battery is no good, you can test the battery using a Volt Meter, the battery should be reading 12 volts, any less and the battery will need to be replaced. You can order a new one from Black and Decker, they purchased Vector in 2006, here is the link;

It has been charging for days, but only the red & yellow lights come on. Shouldn't the green light shine when charged?

The battery is dead, a usual full charge for your sealed lead-acid battery takes only 10-12 hours. You can purchase a new battery from Black and Decker, they purchased Vector in 2006, here is the link;

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. New batteries can be found at Battery International:

My Vector Vec157 Flashlight won't Charge...

It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.

I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.

I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.
