You connect the charger to the lamp and plug the charger into an AC outlet. Having the lamp on will increase charge time. The charger does not appear to accept feedback from the battery so it depends on you to disconnect it when charge is complete.

SOURCE: I have a Vector VEC1378
I have the same and bought a $20 6v lead acid replacement from the Batteries Store. There are 4 small screws hidden under the foam rubber ring pad on the bottom. Very easy to open and swap out the battery. That said if you want to sell me your old lantern as is, I would enjoy having a second one for camping. Thanks and good luck.

The comments about NiCd and NiMh batteries are misleading. However, they are also irrelevant as this lantern is powered by an RT640 6V 4AH sealed lead-acid battery. It will be permanently damaged if allowed to run down completely.
This battery should be charged using a constant voltage charger. Details on the one I've inspected specify 7.3 to 7.4 volts for normal charging, and 6.85 to 6.95 volts when on standby (at 25 degrees C). The battery will be fully charged when its terminal voltage no longer rises. I don't know whether the charger supplied with this lantern meets these specifications as I don't have one.
