There are many companies on the Internet that offer Sealed Lead Acid Batteries, which may be less expensive than replacing the light. I would suggest identifying the particular battery your light has and then check what's available on the Internet to make a decision on whether it is cheaper to replace the battery or the light.

SOURCE: my vector vec157 will not

If you light is charging when you use the 12v automotive charger but not when you use your AC power transformer, my thought is that you might have a problem with your AC charger, not with the light itself. I have AC/DC transformers from the 1970s that still work fine, but I have had numerous modern AC/DC transformers burn out on me in recent years.

One easy test is to use a multimeter to measure the output voltage of your wall charger. Place one test lead on each of the charging terminals (i.e., one inside the barrel and one outside the barrel, if you have a standard coaxial charging port) and check the DC reading. If it's zero--or anything less than 12 volts, actually--the charger isn't working correctly. The problem may be a torn or cut wire or something actually inside the transformer.

Replacement chargers can be found at Radio Shack and other stores. You may also be able to score a cheap replacement at a "dollar plus" store or even at a second-hand shop. Make sure that the terminal polarity is correct on your replacement charger or else you'll fry the batteries in your light.

Good luck!

VEC012POB Manual


Vector sold to Black & Decker who then sold to Bacchus. The only manual I find with the same number you show is NOT yellow and has no USB connection. It is charged by a 110 volt wall wart charger that plugs into a receptacle on the unit, or a 12 volt cigar lighter cable that plugs into the 12 volt port on the unit. Here's a brochure for the model number you provoided:

I have a power on board veco12pob 450 amp jump starter unit and my question is what kind of adaptor do i need . I would like to know the volts and amps.


I have the same problem: today I tried a 12 volt, 1500 milliamp (1.5 amp) power cord and it has charged mine halfway, so far. It fits the plug in, but not certain, yet, that it has enough power to fully charge.

barrel pin 12v 500Ma is correct. the only other required stat that you need to know is that the polarity is( ---------that's how the inside pin polarity is shown on the transformer. Go to any radio Shack, and they have this charger in stock. tell them you need a 120v. a/c input, 12v. DC 500 ma output, with the center (inside) pin positive( ).It should be less than $20.00

I lost the AC adapter for my Vector Compact Elite 300 amp jumpstarter (veco11). What output adapter should I use to charge it? I have a 12 volt that doesn't seem to work.


You need about 14 volts to charge a 12 volt battery. The original charger MAY have some form of current limiting in it.

ALSO pay attention to the polarity of the charger.

google the name and model #. The home website should come up in search. Go to site, and look in support, or replacement parts.

It depends on what voltage the internal battery is. If it's a 6 volt, the charging voltage will be a little higher, close to 6.5 to 7 volts. Most of these spotlights are 6 volt.
