READING THE BATTERY/CHARGE STATUS LED INDICATOR
The battery and charging status LED indicator is located on the top of the unit. It lights or flashes in
three colors to indicate the following:
When charging:
Green: Battery is in a fully charged state.
Orange (flashing): Battery is in a partially charged state.
Red (flashing): Battery needs to be recharged.
Green & Red (flashing alternately):
1. The battery of the unit is overheated due to extensive use or recharging. The charging process will
stop at this stage and will automatically resume after a cool down period.
2. The battery voltage of your vehicle or other 12 volt DC power source has dropped to a level that is
too low when charging using the 12 volt DC adapter. The charging process will stop at this stage
and will automatically resume after the battery level of the 12 volt DC power source returns to
normal.
When operating:
Green: Battery is operating at full voltage.
Orange: Battery is operating at partial voltage.
Red: Battery is operating at low voltage, and should be recharged.
Green & Red (flashing alternately): The battery of the unit is overheated due to extensive use or
recharging. The operation will stop at this stage and will automatically resume after a cool down
period.
CHARGING/RECHARGING THE SPOTLIGHT
This unit is shipped in a partially charged state. Charge unit after purchase and BEFORE first use using
the 120 Volt AC Adapter for 12 hours.
Recharge after each use until the battery/charge status LED indicator lights green.

• Failure to keep the battery charged will cause permanent damage and result in poor performance.
Charging/recharging using the 120 Volt AC Adapter
• Make sure the spotlight is off (the trigger lock is in the off position and the trigger is not depressed).
• Insert the barrel connector of the AC Adapter into the AC to DC Charging Port on the back of the
unit. Insert the plug end into a (powered) standard North American 120 volt 60Hz outlet.
• Charge until the battery/charge status LED indicator lights green (approximately 12 hours).
Charging/recharging using the 12 Volt DC Adapter (optional accessory)
• Make sure the spotlight is off (the trigger lock is in the off position and the trigger is not depressed).
• Insert the barrel tip of the supplied 12 Volt DC Adapter into the 12 Volt DC Power and Charging Port
on the back of the unit.
• Insert the 12 volt DC plug end into the accessory outlet of your vehicle or other 12 volt DC power source.

Notes:
When using a vehicle' s 12 volt DC accessory outlet as a charging source, be aware that some vehicles require you to turn on the
ignition to power the accessory outlet.
WARNING:TO AVOID THE RISK OF PROPERTY DAMAGE:
• NEVER CONNECT THE UNIT TO A POSITIVE GROUNDED VEHICLE.
• The 12 Volt DC Adapter must only be connected to batteries with a nominal output voltage of 12
volts. The unit will not operate from a 6 volt battery and will sustain permanent damage if connected
to a 24 volt battery.

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.
Except for the H3, 40 watt bulb, 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
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
The battery should last the service life of the unit. Service life is dependent on a number of factors
including but not limited to the number of recharge cycles, and proper care and maintenance of the
battery by the end user. Contact manufacturer for any information you may need.
