IMPORTANT: The spotlight will operate while the 120 Volt AC Adapter is attached, but will continue to draw
power from the unit's Lithium-Ion battery and will not continue charging while the spotlight operates. This
may cause the low voltage protection to activate and shut the spotlight down. Manufacturer recommends only
operating the unit in corded mode using the 12 Volt DC Adapter.
Using the Swing-up Stand
Lift the Swing-up Stand up, invert the unit and set it upon a flat, stable surface for hands-free operation.
Using the carry lanyard (optional accessory)
The carry lanyard may be used to carry the unit or to hang it for storage. Always adjust the slide on the cords
to keep the lanyard secure around any supporting object.
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PRODUCT DAMAGE:
• When light is hung by the carry lanyard, do not shake the spotlight or object that it is hanging from. Do not
hang the spotlight from any electrical wires or anything that it is not secure.
• Only use the carry lanyard for hanging this spotlight. The carry lanyard is not intended to support additional
weight. Do not attach or hang anything additional to the spotlight or risk of breakage may occur.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
All batteries lose energy from self-discharge over time and more rapidly at higher temperatures. When the
unit is not in use, we recommend that the battery is charged at least every 3 to 6 months.
Never submerge the unit in water. If the unit gets dirty, gently clean the outer surfaces of the spotlight unit with a
soft cloth moistened with a mild solution of water and detergent.
There are no user-replaceable parts. Periodically inspect the condition of adapters, connectors and wires.
Contact manufacturer to replace any components that have become worn or broken.
Battery replacement/disposal

• Before disposing of the battery, protect exposed terminals with heavy-duty electrical tape to prevent shorting
(shorting can result in injury or fire).
• Do not expose battery to fire or intense heat as it may explode.
12 volt DC Adapter plug fuse replacement
The fuse in the plug end of the 12 Volt DC Adapter protects the adapter's charging circuit. If the 120 Volt AC
Adapter operates, but the DC charging adapter does not, then this fuse may be opened (blown).
