Guide :Camping, Backpacking & Hiking : 3 Million Candlepower Rechargeable Sport Spotlight

I found a Vector 3 Million in a house that I just bought. Though it is fully charged, I am unable to turn on the twin searchlights, though I am able to turn on the two sidelights. I've placed the switch on single and twin and pressed the trigger on the pistol grip, but the lights do not turn on. Is there another switch that I need to turn on? I don't have the operating instructions and have not figured out how to get to the bulbs.

I went to ACE Hardware and the sales person their figured it out. After testing the bulbs, which were fine, we narrowed it down to the trigger on the cpistol grip. It turned out that there is a cover over the trigger that must be lifted before the trigger can fully engage.

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

To recharge the battery, you will need a 12VDC 300mA adapter. It will take 12 to 15 Hours to charge.Try Radio Shack, and take the light with you to make sure the charger fits the hole.

Niether one of my Executive defenders nor my G2 will work and I have new batteries!!!


Strange how all the units have failed. Sounds like more of a battery problem. Are you using brand name batteries like Surefire, Energizer etc? I had two boxes of Chinese import batteries and most of them failed. I put them into a number of items and had problems. I stopped using them and opted to pay the extra for 'real' batteries. A bad battery can do more harm that just going flat. If it releases too much power when turned on because it isn't properly regulated it can fry the bulb or electronics in those things so equiped. Having said that the big companies also have sets of 'lemmon' batches too. If you have spare globes. First try some other batteries. If it doesn't work then use those batteries and the new globe.

Can Not Turn Off


If you have replaced the battery, you may have connected it backwards whick damaged the circuits when you first connected it to the unit. If the light comes on in high and stays on, I would call DeWalt and ask them if you can get a new control circuit.

Rechargeable maglite won't turn on.


Thank you. This post helped me. I couldn't see the break in the filament of my bulb either so I just figured it had to be the battey so I replaced them and still nothing. After reading this post I put an ohm meter on the bulb and had nothing. Replaced the bulb and it works like a champ again.

I would like to repair my Ultrafire SSC-P7 900 Lumen flashlight. The unit only has one mode - dim at @60 lumens. The switch should allow for a Low, Medium, High and Strobe mode. Do I need to replace/upgrade the switch. Or do components on the P7 module need to be relaced... I enjoy DIY. The P7 LED uses 2 X 18650 lithium-ion rechargables. The batteries require a connection between. Others have recommended a Neodymium disc about 1/4'' by 1/16 works fine electrically and mechanically


Hello, The mode is changed on these type of flishlights by momenatry pressing of the switch while it is on. try it i am sure it will work.
