CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS
Actual charging of the Spotlight Battery is required before using the Spotlight.
To recharge the Battery follow the directions below.
1.
To charge the Battery (3), your Spotlight comes with an AC/DC Adapter (19). Lift the Waterproof
Stopper (7) on top of Spotlight. Insert the round end of the AC/DC Adapter (19) into the AC/DC
Socket (13). Plug the prong end of the AC/DC Adapter (19) into an electrical outlet. The red
charging light will turn on while the battery is being recharged. See Figure A, B.
2.
Charging time will take from 10 to approximately 12 hours. The red light will shut off automatically
when the battery is fully charged. After the battery is charged for the required time, unplug the
AC/DC Adapter from the wall socket and the AC/DC Socket on the Spotlight. Never attempt to
turn on the Spotlight while it is being recharged. Once recharged, with the AC/DC Adapter
removed, the Spotlight is ready to be used. A fully charged Spotlight will provide approximately
a 20 minute strong beam or 50 minute weaker beam.
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 automati7, 13
