Suggested Questions And Answer :


I bought a vector 20 million power series sport/spot light and based my purchase on reviewsand company reputation. After receiving the light in the mail I followed the instructions charging it for the proper length of time then tried the light at night in a wooded area near my home. First impressions were anything but favorable, the light was poorly designed ergonomicallythe on-off switches were positioned to put it bluntly in a very stupid place making it awkward to turn off and on. I was ok with the lights size and weight it was just the way it was designed that made its size and weight a detriment to ease of use. Next after a several day full and complete charge I put the light in the trunk of my car to be ready for use on a weekend camping trip. When we arrived at the campsite and began setting up I got the vector out with high expectation of it lighting up my area so I could set up my tent so I set it up turned it on and at first thought wow this is great adjusted the stand started setting up camp when the brand new VECTOR 20 million candle power light slowly started to dim out all to my chagrin of course. within minutes it was dead as a doornail. Almost a HUNDRED dollars for a flashlight and my old trusty 1 million candle power DORCEY spotlight purchased from Harbor Freight that fortunately was in the trunk of my car came to the rescue.A cheap 10 dollar spotlight not only was brighter but it lasted the entire time it took to set up camp. After the weekend was over and I was back at home I emailed the vector company and to be honest was treated with a cross between sarcasism and indifference when I expressed my concerns. I was more than a little surprised and caught completely off guard so much so I allowed myself to be dismissed when I asked if I could trade in y brand new spotlight on one of equal or the one I was interested in trading on was a fair bit more expensive. My less than polite or helpful customer service represenative told me that they do not do that and in so much words he made it clear that I was stuck with the one I have and that it is clearly written in the ad that it is a large floodlight,. I gave up figured I had been stuck with the floodlight and swallowed my pride after writing a less than favorable review on the floodlight. I just had to write again I just took the light out to look at a car I had trouble with today turned it on and thought hey this is working ok but within 15 minutes the light dimmed very quickly till it was stone dead and I could not see anything. So out of sheer frustration I am writing this letter to express my feelings once more. Again I broke out my 10 dollar dorcey floodlight that had been hanging on a hook not plugged in and charging just hanging took it outside and it not only lit up my car but lasted the entire time and was still going strong when I finished brought it in hung it up and put the charger on it. So after this long winded explanation about one of your products it comes down to "I WOULD NEVER AGAIN BUY ANY VECTOR PRODUCTS NOR RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!" I am stuck with this lemon I am trying to decide what the best job could be for this floodlight and all I could think of is that it would work well as a corner weight on the tarpaulin that I have covering my car. Sincerely, James R. Clement. A dissatisfied customer .


This light has'nt really like others much that can go wrong. I'm sorry to hear you had so many problems. I have this light and recieved it second hand, without an owners manual. I went to VectorMfg.com which redirected me to Black & Deckers web site. I there downloaded an owners manual. If I would'nt have done that I may have also posted many of the questions reguarding this light. There are many inportant things to know before use and continued use. The bulb and battery are replacable. Hope this helps! Matthew

Area light works but not the spotlight


Check the contacts going to the batteries. The negative contact is going the flashlight body. While the other starts at the center of thebulb socket that goes to the switch and finally to the positive terminalof the battery. Get it done and send an e-mail .

My Vector Vec157 Flashlight won't Charge...


It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine. I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light. I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.

Bad battery ???


It sounds like the battery has just enough "juice" to give the small light some power, but when the larger light is turned on it overloads the bad (or expired) battery. When you put a new battery in you can extend the life by not using the light when the battery starts to die. This is when it starts to permanently damage the battery. Turn it off and recharge as soon as it dims. Charge often, but don't leave on the charger too long unless it is a smart charger and turns off when the battery is fully charged. This will also reduce the life. You can find a replacement battery here: http://batteryinternational.com/spotlight-batteries-vector-battery.html

I need a replacement bulb assembly for a Vector Power on Board 3 million candlewatt spotlight. The small light works, but the big one doesn't and you can see where it is burnt where the wires come in. Please help. Frank


Hi snikmn... Disassemble the flashlight. Take the bulb out and take it to your local auto parts place and they will be able to give you the bulb that you need. It will probably be a 55/60 or just a straight 55 or 60 watt. The higher the wattage the brighter the light, but the less time it can burn at that setting. Please take time to rate me

My Vector Flash light is not working, I have tried to fix localy in Santa Barbara, but was unable, there is a place to send them to be fixed, my model is Sport Spot 3 million, thanks


If you can't find the battery locally they have vector batteries online as well. You can find the battery either by the model of the spotlight, or remove the batteries and see if there are any model numbers.

2M Pwr Rch Spotlight: main light no longer working'but smaller ligh is?...


The rechargeable battery is dead, it has just enough juice to light the LED light, but not the main one. I have two identical Vector lights VEC119CO, one with the same problem you are describing and the other one in perfect working order. I tested it by hooking up the leads of the non-working light to the battery of the working light and the main light turned on.You can order a new battery or any parts you need for a Vector product from Black and Decker, either online or if you live close to a Service Center you will save money on shipping by picking it up.
