CHARGING THE BATTERY
The unit is delivered in a partially charged state. It must be fully charged prior to first
use by either the 120 volt AC method (preferred) or the 12 volt DC method.
After charging, disconnect the Adapter from the external power source, then
disconnect the Adapter from the AC Recharge Port or 12 Volt DC Accessory Outlet.
12 VOLT DC
ADAPTER
Plug the supplied 120 Volt AC Adapter’s plug into a
standard North American outlet. Connect the
adapter’s DC port to the AC Recharge Port located
on the top/rear of the grip handle. The LED will light
to indicate that the unit is charging. Time required to
initially charge the unit using this method is
approximately 30 to 35 hours. The LED Charging
Indicator will blink when the unit is fully charged. The
Spotlight cannot be used while recharging
using this method.
12 Volt DC Charging/Recharging
The DC recharging method will NOT recharge the
unit as effectively as the 120 volt AC method. The 12
volt DC recharging procedure is recommended
only when it is necessary, since frequent use of the
12 volt DC recharging procedure may shorten the
battery system’s life.
1. Insert the gold-tipped end plug of the12 Volt DC
Adapter plug into the vehicle’s 12 volt DC
accessory outlet.
2. Insert the silver-tipped end plug into the 12 Volt DC Accessory Outlet on the back
of the handle of the unit.
3. Charging time using this method is approximately 5 to 6 hours.
4. When charging is complete, remove the power cord and return it to the storage
compartment.
Note: When using a vehicle’s 12 volt DC accessory outlet as a charging/power
source, be aware that some vehicles require the ignition be turned on to power
the accessory outlet.
CAUTION
Before charging/recharging the unit’s battery, make sure all power
switches are in the OFF position.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Using the Spotlight
The quartz halogen Spotlight is operated by the two switches located
on the side of the unit. The top ON/OFF Switch controls the high beam
(130 watt) function; the bottom ON/OFF Switch controls the low beam
(approx. 60 watt) function.
CAUTION
When using the 12 Volt DC Adapter to power the Spotlight (corded mode), use the
Low Beam ONLY.

Using the 3-LED Auxiliary Light
Replacement Parts
The 3-LED Auxiliary Light is operated by the LED Auxiliary Light ON/OFF Pushbutton
located on the top of the grip handle.
The quartz halogen bulb and sealed lead acid batteries are available through Power
on Board. A comparable (12 volt H4 130 watt) bulb may be substituted. These can
also be purchased from popular automotive parts suppliers nationwide. Contact
Power on Board’s Technical Support Department for replacement parts (including
replacement adapters and cords) and any additional information that you may need.
They may be reached at (954) 584-4446 or toll free at (866) 584-5504.
WARNING
Using the 12 Volt DC Accessory Outlet
The 12 volt DC accessory outlet powers any DC appliance that does not exceed
5 amps. Flip up the accessory outlet cover and insert the appliance’s DC plug. Close
the cover after use.
Using the Adjustable Workstand
Set the hands-free adjustable workstand to the desired position; then turn the knobs
on either side of the unit to lock in position.
To reduce the risk of shocks or burns and avoid damage to the unit,
make sure all power switches are in the OFF position, all adapters are
unplugged and the unit has been allowed to cool down before
performing any maintenance/parts replacement.
Bulb Replacement
1. Remove the rubber bezel on the rim of the Spotlight to reveal eight small Phillips
screws in the retaining ring.
2. Using a screwdriver, remove (counterclockwise) the screws and set them aside.
3. Lift off the retaining ring, glass lens and rubber “O” ring and set them aside.
4. Carefully remove the reflector and bulb assembly.
5. Disconnect the bulb from the guarding wires and replace the burned out bulb
with one of the same type listed in the Specifications section of this manual.
6. Reassemble the guarding wires, put back the reflector, rubber “O” ring and
the lens.
7. Replace rubber bezel by sliding forward to the front of the spotlight.
8. Turn one of the spotlight’s ON/OFF switches to the ON position to ensure
proper operation of spotlight.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
All batteries lose charge with time. AC recharge is recommended after each use or
every two months when not in frequent use. Use the AC recharger and charge for
the recommended time.
If the unit gets dirty, gently clean the outer surfaces of the Spotlight with a soft cloth
moistened with a mild solution of water and detergent. Periodically inspect the
condition of recharge adapters, connectors, and wires. Replace any components
that may have become worn or broken.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Battery Replacement
1. Release the battery compartment cover locks on either side of the unit and
remove the cover.
2. Pull out the (two) batteries.
3. Disconnect the terminals and replace the batteries with the same type listed in
the Specifications section of this manual.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover and engage the locks.
5. Turn one of the spotlight’s ON/OFF switches to the ON position to ensure
proper operation of spotlight.
• No Charge Indicator Light
If the Charge Indicator LED does not light when charging do the following:
A) Check for bad connection to the AC Recharge Port
B) Check for bad connection to AC adapter
C) Confirm there is a functioning AC current
Operating Issues
1. When the Spotlight is operating, the 120 volt AC method will not work. The
Auxiliary Light will turn on when pressed while charging. Be sure all adapters
are disconnected before Spotlight usage.
2. If the unit does not operate, the battery may be completely discharged. Charge
the unit using the AC adapter following the directions in the manual.
3. If you suspect a bulb is blown, check the bulb filament. If filament is coiled and
unbroken, the bulb is not blown. If filament is blown, replace bulb.
4. If you suspect the main fuse is blown, check it and, if necessary, replace with a
new 20 amp spade fuse.
