LOOKING FOR SEL DMU 6-6 6V6AH BATTERY FOR THE VECTOR MEGA SPORT SPOT LIGHT
Jwgbounder, despite the relatively recent acquisition, apparently Black & Decker no longer services Vector products either. They sold their Vector line to Baccus Global LLC as of about August 2010 (see http://support.blackanddecker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5771
). I have the same lamp you do, and here's how I recently replaced my battery. Replacement source for Vector Spot battery "SEL DMU6-6": the Tempest TR6-6 at BatterySpec @http://www.batteryspec.com/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?action=link&product=313
. (I suggest avoiding their TR6-6A for Vectors Spotlights: it's a little bigger, and may not fit. Also, BatterySpec suggests the Tempest 5-6A as an equivalent for the original "SEL DMU 6-6"; that's only equivalent if5ah=6ah. Caveat Emptor). You can see the actual specs on this product at (the manufacturer) Tempest's web site: http://www.tempestbatteries.com/html/tr6-6.html.
This seems to be a virtually identical battery as Vector's original "SEL DMU 6-6" in every way but one. Vector's battery had one F1 (.187"wide) terminal, and one F2 (.250" wide) terminal. On the BatterySpec's Tempest, both terminals are F1. This was no problem: the Vector lamp's leads snap snug and secure over both terminals. I paid $10.90, plus $10.13 shipping, ordered on Saturday morning 10/23, got a shipping confirmation from their San Jose CA warehouse Monday evening 10/25, and received it in Virginia on Monday morning 11/1/2010. 11/5 update: battery charged, and the lamp works great.
