Insert the power plug into the accessory outlet of your vehicle or other 12 volt DC
power source.
Make sure the spotlight is OFF and the Trigger Switch is in the OFF position
(not depressed).
Allow approximately 3-4 hours charging time.
Recharge until the green Battery Charge Level Indicator LED lights.
Make sure the DC source (jump-starter, battery pack, vehicle accessory outlet, etc.) is
12 volt DC. The DC source should be able to supply at least one-half amp at
12 volt DC for 10 hours. This means a battery pack should be charged with at least
5 amp hours capacity.

PARTS REPLACEMENT

One part is user replaceable. The quartz halogen bulb is proprietary and is
available through Vector. A substitute 6 volt H3 55 watt bulb may be used in place
of a existing bulb. These can be purchased from popular automotive parts suppliers
nationwide. For replacement parts and any additional information you may need,
contact Technical Support at (800) 618-5178.

Spotlight Bulb Replacement
To replace the H3 type 6 volt bulb you will need a small Phillips type screwdriver and
a replacement bulb (Vector Part VEC193). 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. During bulb installation, avoid touching the glass part of the
bulb (see Figures 2A and 2B for details).
1. Disconnect the unit from any charging adapters.
2. Push the rubber bezel forward toward the front of the spotlight to reveal two small
Phillips screws in the retaining ring.
3. Using the screwdriver, remove (counterclockwise) the two screws. Set them aside.
4. Lift off the retaining ring, glass lens and rubber "O" ring and set them aside.
5. Carefully remove the reflector and bulb assembly (see Figures 2A and 2B).
6. Disconnect the bulb wire from the red power wire.
