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

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.

I received this for Christmas and used it only twice in January. I went to use it this week and it lit up for a few minutes and died. I tried charging it until the green light came on. I unplugged the power cord I was using to charge it and tried to turn the light on, no light. I charged it for 12 hours, the green light was flashing, but the bulbs do not come on. What are my next steps?


Plugged it into the Vector to charge, the see if the Vector would light up without a problem, if it lights then your battery is shot.

I DO NOT HAVE THE POWER CHARGING CORDS... ONLY THEAIN PART OF THE LIGHT/INFLATOR . WHAT POWER SUPPLY CLORD IS USED?


On the side of the unit is a small black flap that covers two prongs that you can plug a standard 110-120 volt extension cord into which will charge the unit. There are 3 read lights and 1 green lights on the top that lets you know when it is fully charged. The 12 volt charging cord is basically a cord that has 2 cigarette lighter plugs. One plugs into the unit and the other plugs into a power port/cigarette lighter plug.

I lost the adapter/charger and purchased a new one of the same size. The light will work when plugged into the car cig lighter, but not while plugged into the dc adapter (has been plugged in for approx. 3 hours so far). Even though the charger is the same size (dc 12V 500ma), is that the problem? Or is the battery dead to the point of being unable to charge? Fuse is fine, by the way. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


The owners manual states not to use light while under an ac charge, dc charging allows ld and single bulb use,and an ac charge may take 30- 36 hours or so. If the battery does not charge, you will probably need a new battery. Keep battery fully charged if not used within 2 months. Batterys are replacable 12 volt 7 AH. Hope this helps! Matthew

I have a Vector HID Spotlight Power on Board SLH100P and I'm trying to recharge it. When you plug in the charger the led lights flash and click really fast. What could be the problem? Thanks for your help!


The battery needs replaced. In March, 2006, Black & Decker purchased Vector Products, Inc. Since the acquisition, Black & Decker has assumed the manufacturing of all Vector products. For customer service and warranty information for Vector products, please contact Black & Decker Customer Service. Or, you can order a replacement battery from: www.batterymart.com/p-6v-4_5ah-sealed-lead-acid-battery.html
