I have a Kingavon 1 million cp spotlight (model SL1000EB ) I also have a lot of unidentified chargers. Does anyone know what charger fits the spotlight?
I will assume that your light has rechargable NiCad batteries. Use the following advice ONLY if you are sure this is true. If the light is more than a couple of years old, this is probably true.
Of the plug has to fit, but it must also have the correct Polarity, Voltage, and Amperage. The spotlight should be labeled where you plug the charger into it with these three critical parameters. They will also be indicated on the chargers. POLARITY --- If it takes a round plug, the polarity is indicated by a symbol that looks like a C, usually with a plus sign inside of it (this indicates that the center contact is positive). VOLTAGE --- this will be expressed as VDC input on the light, and VDC output on the charger. The voltages only need to match within about 10%. AMPERAGE ---- this will be expressed as mA (milliamps, which is thousandths of amps) or as A (which is Amps). 1000 mA = 1 A. This doesn't need to match precisely either. But if it's too low, the charge will take a while and you might burn up the charger (possibly literally burning it). If the amperage on the charger is high, that's OK, so long as the voltage is not high as well.
I hope this helps,
Thanks for using FixYa.
