The Operator
PLEASE REMEMBER:
Never look directly into the Spotlight.
Avoid touching the Lens as it may become hot during operation.
Do not dissassemble the Battery or remove any parts from the Battery and surrounding connections.
Do not allow the Spotlight to be exposed to fire or high heat as this may result in an explosion.
Grounding/Voltage Warning
Common household current is 110-120 volts. As long as the outlet used with the tool is rated from 110-120V
there will be no complications using it with household receptacles. Plug the Power Adapter into a 110-120V
properly grounded outlet protected by a 15-amp, dual element time delay or circuit breaker.
NEVER try to plug a 110-120V tool into a 220-240V circuit or serious complications and possible injury to the
operator may occur. The plugs have different shapes to prevent this.

Charging
Your Spotlight Battery (#9) is rechargeable. It can be charged by either using the Power Adapter (#17) or the
Car Adapter (#16).
To recharge your Battery (#9) using the AC/DC Adapter (#17):
Step 1) Insert the cord end of the Power Adapter (#17) into the outlet on the back of the Spotlight.
Plug the Power Adapter (#17) into an electrical outlet.
Step 2) The red light on the side of the Housing (#1) will light, indicating that the unit is properly plugged in.
For the initial charge of the Spotlight, leave the Power Adapter (#17) plugged in for between 12 and 14 hours
until the Spotlight is fully charged. The red light will shut off automatically when the battery is fully charged.
Subsequent charges of the Battery will take approximately 8 to 10 hours.
Important: Always unplug the Power Adapter (#17) from the Spotlight after the Spotlight is charged. The
Spotlight will not function properly if the Power Adapter is plugged into the Spotlight.
Note: After each use of the Spotlight, always fully recharge the battery.
Note: This unit is equipped with an automatic shutoff. If the Battery’s power is running low, the
unit will automatically stop operating to protect the battery. Charge the battery immediately.
To recharge your Battery (#9) using the Car Adapter (#16)
Step 1) Insert the cord end of the Car Adapter (#16) into the outlet on the back of the Spotlight. Plug
the plug end of the Car Adapter (#16) into your car’s lighter.
For the initial charge, the Spotlight must be charged for between 9 and 12 hours. The red light will shut off
automatically when the battery is fully charged. Subsequent charges of the Battery will take approximately 5 to
8 hours.
Note: When charging the Spotlight, only place the Spotlight on a non-flammable surface.
Important: Always unplug the Car Adapter (#16) from the Spotlight after the Spotlight is charged. The
Spotlight will not function properly if the Car Adapter is plugged into the Spotlight.

Your Spotlight is equipped with a Trigger Hold to allow you to have the Spotlight on while leaving your hands
free for work.
Step 1) To turn on your Spotlight, press down on the Trigger (#11). To lock on the Spotlight for an extended
amount of time, activate the Locking Trigger Hold (#10). Push in on the Locking Trigger Hold button while the
Trigger is depressed. The Spotlight will stay on until the Locking Trigger Hold button on the other side of the
handle is pushed in.
If there is any question about a condition being safe or unsafe, do not operate the tool.
