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