emergency lighting during utility power outages. With proper care and use, it will give you

instructions on page 4). With a full charge, the ULTRA SPORT SPOT® will provide up to 30

a small button type switch located in the handle. Press
the button to turn on the light. With the

CORDED OPERATION
NOTE: During corded operation, the battery may be left in the unit, and will charge while the
spotlight or area light are being used. A full charge takes about 3-4 hours using the DC
method or the battery may be removed for charging (using the 12-volt 110-volt AC method.)
1. Insert 12-volt DC power plug into DC adapter plug at bottom of handle (Figure C).
2. Plug the other end into any vehicle’s cigarette lighter receptacle or other compatible 12-volt
DC power source.
CHARGING THE BATTERY WITH 110-VOLT AC ADAPTER
The 110-volt AC adapter provides a much more effective charge compared to charging with a
12-volt DC power source. Because the battery pack is removable, you can charge the battery
at home while your ULTRA SPORT SPOT® is being operated with the 12-volt DC power cord.
For extended use, we recommend purchasing an additional battery as back-up. Call Vector™
Customer Service department at 954-584-4446 or toll free at 866-584-5504
Figure D. 1. Slide the battery pack cover towards the handle. Completely remove the cover and
set it aside.
2. The battery pack can be removed from the light by carefully tapping the unit and
freeing the battery.
3. Make sure the battery pack contacts are not shorted to any metal objects.
Plug the AC adapter into the battery and charge for eight hours. If battery is severely
discharged then charge it for 12 hours. DO NOT OVERCHARGE BATTERY.

Manufacturing replacement. Replacement bulbs and batteries are available from our
customer service department by calling (954)584-4446 or call toll free

24 hours.

result in damage to the battery. Always keep battery fully charged when not in use.
• Do not allow metal to touch the square metal contacts on the battery. This can cause a
short circuit that could result in fire. Always put the battery safety cover on when
battery is removed.

problem. Then replace the fuse. Disconnect the spotlight from the DC adapter, unscrew the
flange on the DC counterclockwise. remove the end contact and fuse. Replace the flange
