This unit is shipped in a partially charged state. Charge unit BEFORE first use

LED lights. Charge after each use until green LED lights.
Charging/Recharging Using the 120 Volt AC Charger
Plug a standard North American 120 volt AC extension cord into the 120 Volt AC
Charger on the back of the unit.
HOUSEHOLD EXTENSION CORD

Make sure the Spotlight is OFF (the Trigger Lock is in the OFF position and the
Trigger is not depressed).

14 hours). DO NOT CHARGE FOR LONGER THAN 14 HOURS.
Charging/Recharging Using the 12 Volt DC Charging Adapter
Plug the barrel tip of the supplied 12 Volt DC Charging Adapter into the 12 Volt
DC Charging Port.
12 VOLT DC CHARGING ADAPTER
Insert the 12 volt DC plug end into the accessory outlet of your vehicle or other 12

Make sure the DC source (jump-starter, battery pack, vehicle accessory outlet,

hours. This means a battery pack should be charged with at least 4 amp hours
capacity.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

To turn the Spotlight ON, depress the Trigger. Pressing the Trigger repeatedly at
one second intervals advances the brightness level from dim to brightest.
To lock the Trigger in the ON position, squeeze the trigger switch and move the
trigger locking button (located on the side of the handle) to locked position. The
spotlight will stay on until the lock is moved to the OFF position and the trigger is
released.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

All batteries lose charge with time, especially when they are warm. Recharge the
unit every two months when not in frequent use, preferably using the 120 volt AC
method.
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.
The quartz halogen bulb is the only user-replaceable part in the Spotlight.
Periodically inspect the condition of adapters, connectors and wires. Contact
Technical Support toll-free at 800-544-6986 to replace any components that have
become worn or broken.

Spotlight Bulb Replacement

To replace the bulb, you will need a small Phillips screwdriver and a 6 volt H3 55
watt replacement bulb. During installation, avoid touching the glass part of the
bulb. Bulb life may be shortened by installing a bulb with dirt or fingerprints on it.
The bulb can be wiped clean with a cloth moistened with alcohol.
