7.2. FLUORESCENT TUBE INSTALLATION
1. INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on purchasing the Vector Sport Spot Lantern, an advanced design
combination spotlight and lantern. It instantly converts use from a powerful spotlight
to a soft, long-lasting area light. See Figure 1A and 1B. It uses a powerful
proven-technology, rechargeable, sealed lead acid battery that allows for years of
dependable use, recharge after recharge. It was designed from the ground up to
be the most versatile and practical light for travel, camping, picnicking, tailgate
parties and boating. The Sport Spot Lantern gives you the kind of light you need,
when and where you need it.
1. Make sure that the Lantern Switch is Off.
2. Press the new fluorescent tube’s base into the Tube Socket Assembly.
3. Replace the Tube Socket Assembly so that the two Support Rods pass
through the assembly and it is fully seated against the clear plastic dome.
4. Replace the two nuts and tighten (clockwise) so that the tube assembly is snug.
5. Screw on (clockwise) the End Cap until it is snug.
6. Test the fluorescent tube for proper operation by reconnecting the battery
and turning On the Lantern switch.

any 120 volt 60 Hz AC receptacle. 12 volt DC power is available from most
vehicles, boats, jump starters and portable battery packs. Vector has a variety of
portable power products that may be considered as companions to your Sport Spot
Lantern. Contact Vector for additional information.
The battery is contained in a compartment in the base of the unit. A plate must be
removed to gain access to the battery. Figures 5A and 5B show access to the
battery compartment.

The swivel action of the unit keeps the lamp head securely in position for use while
carrying or while on tabletop. The range of swivel motion is greater than 90
degrees with five locking positions. The spotlight position (upright) focuses light
straight ahead. The lantern position (spotlight tilted forward 90 degrees) floods
light in a 360-degree pattern for reading, cooking and many other uses. A
three-position Power Switch (Spotlight, Off, Lantern) controls on/off operation of
both lights. The switch is protected by a flexible covering that protects it from dust,
dirt and moisture. This ensures reliability and extends the life of the switch. The
spotlight can be continuously lit for up to 20 minutes on a full battery charge; the
lantern can be lit for up to four hours on a full battery charge.

All batteries lose charge over time, especially when they are warm. Frequent
battery recharges will extend battery life. AC recharge is recommended every two
months, when not in frequent use. Use the AC recharge adapter and charge until
battery is full. AC and DC recharge connections are through a heavy-duty barrel
receptacle at the lower rear of the unit. (See figure 5A) Two LED indicators display
the status of recharge. Continue recharge operation until the two LEDS are equally
bright. (See Figure 1A.)

4.1 AC RECHARGE
The AC Recharge adapter provides 300 mA DC for recharging the
batteries. Power the AC Recharger from a standard, 120 volt, 60 Hz AC North
American receptacle. The AC recharger will not support lamp operation. Do not
operate the lamps while the AC Recharger is connected to the Recharge Port.
Charge with lamps Off until LEDs are equally bright. This steady recharge will
prolong battery life. Only use the supplied AC Recharger—DO NOT SUBSTITUTE
WITH ANOTHER. (SEE FIGURE 2A)
4.2 DC RECHARGE DC
The Recharge adapter provides DC for recharging the batteries.
Power the DC Recharger from a standard, 12 volt DC cigarette lighter type
accessory socket. Charge until LEDs are equally bright. Only use the supplied
DC Recharger - do not substitute with another. The DC Recharge Adapter’s DC Plug
is equipped with a user-replaceable 10-ampere fuse. (SEE FIGURE 2B)
5. MAINTENANCE/PARTS REPLACEMENT
If the unit has dirt on it, gently clean the outer surfaces of the Sport Spot Lantern
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.
Four parts are replaceable by users. The quartz halogen bulb and the fluorescent
tube are proprietary and are only available through Vector Manufacturing. The sealed
lead acid battery and fuse are available from Vector as well as from popular
automotive parts suppliers nationwide. Contact Technical Support for replacement parts
and any additional information that you may need at (866) 584-5504.
