I put the flashlight in the charger and the red light on the base does not come one. If I adjust the position of the device in the charger, the red light flickers and then may stay on. The light still does not charge. I replaced the battery and the bulb, assuring that I have the battery in the correct position. I thought the charger was bad, so I bought a new one. What do you think the problem is ? Are the 2 round connector points adjustable ? I see they are attached with phillips head screws.

You have a bad contact between the flashlight and the charger, as you suspected. No, those points aren't adjustable, that shouldn't stop you from trying to adjust them properly. Most likely they no longer jet out sufficiently - try to put something under them, maybe that wouldbe enough.

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

Bought the rechargeable light new a couple years ago, used one time for about 90 seconds. Went to use it again, it was dead. plugged in the battery charger into the cig lighter and it worked after 5 min. charging. I let it charge another 15 min. and it quit working. I then charged it with the electric charger and it never came on. What now?


First, ensure the charger is delivering voltage using a volt meter. If it is, the battery is probably bad. If you have soldering skills, the light can probably be disassembled and a replacement battery can be purchased from Radio Shack or online.

Lantern taken out of 5 year storage - switch was in "on" position - plugged in charger (15 hours) light remained red - never took a charge - won't light (rechargable twin tube No. 5348)


I don't like to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like there are no longer replacement batteries available for that lantern. Please see this link for repair parts from coleman. (also possibly here.) There is a customer service number listed at the bottom of that first page that will put you in touch with a Coleman representative, who may be able to suggest an alternative choice for your lantern. Failing that, the only solution I can recommend would be to take the lantern to one of the aftermarket battery suppliers (such as Batterys Plus, etc.) and see if they can provide you with a non OEM version of the battery you need for your lantern to take a charge. Good luck. I hope you're able to find something.] I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

I simply need to know what the 3 colored LEDs on the handle represent. There is a red one, an orange(yellow) one, and a green one. I lost the manual and need to know when the battery is fully charged. It seems the green one comes on only after it has been plugged into the charger for a while, but then what? How many hours do I leave it on the charger to get the battery fully charged but not over charged? By the way, if you are looking for the DMU 12-3 battery (12 volt 3 AH) I got one from BATTERYSPEC.COM...$16.50 plus $10 shipping.


Red, Yellow, Green are the battery level indicators, Red being the lowest like a fuel gauge. If the green comes on right away after plugging in the charger then it must not indicate the charge cycle. If its a 3Ah battery whats the charger output amperage? Then you could just do the math to figure out how long it would take to charge that battery to full with the output. Otherwise it shouldn't hurt it to leave it plugged in overnight or at least a few hours to charge it.

I have an old rechargable maglite. when I put it on the charger the red charger light does not come on and it will not charge. However if I depress the on button when it is in the charger the red light will come on but it cannot be charged like this. I have a new battery and it happens in both the ac and dc charger so I assume the problem is in the flashlight.
