Vector Power On Board 35W HID Spotlight

Does anyone on here know where I could get one of these at a fair price? I have been looking for one. They used to sell them at Sam’s Club. I missed out on one that was on Ebay. But I would like to have one that was in excellent shape.

Hate to say it Brad, but I think they're gone... Even a year ago they were impossible to find, now there is no way.

Yea they don’t make them anymore, but I would like to have one. My friend Reuben on ebay sold one that I missed out on.

Here is what I am looking for.


I’m just wanting one for the wow factor! That’s all.

Hi Brad,

If you get one, add the power meter and illuminated On/Off switch, it gives them that extra nice look in addtion to being functional. Switching out the 6000k bulb with a 4300K increases the brightness quite a bit too.

Sorry guys, I sold the red display one already and the blue display one I really don’t want to sell. I was thankful to have it during the Sandy hurricane/snow storm in addition to my other lights. I posted the photo so Brad would have an idea how I customized mine, and perhaps it would give him some ideas on what he may wish to do to his.

Damn, I did find one semi-not at all promising lead. This guy over a year ago had one for sale on BLF, but no one bought it.

After a bit more searching I found the OEM, they have been messaged. Big Smile

Brad,

Why not just buy another Professional’s Favorite like what you already have for $40 and then put a 35,55, or 75W HID kit in it? You can get the ballast and bulb for under $50. You can even put in a 35W bulb and overdrive it with a 55W ballast for better throw.

I wouldn’t even begin to know how to do that.

Ok, just sent an email to the sales guy at the OEM to ask if they happen to have any in their warehouse/if it would be possible to buy just one. Big Smile

You just need to find your buddy Brad one. Maybe there will be a reward if you do.

Ok in the meantime I’m gonna try my best to get Rich to make a deal on the one he has. I could pay cash or do some trading and cash or all trade.

What about something like this? 11" reflector light

Or this smaller one. I see it from about 20 vendors at different prices.

Tempting, I like the Vector just because it is so well proven. But if nothing else I may give the 11" one a shot.

Old,

No offense, but I want a proven performer like the Power on Board.

Here’s what saab said about the Power On Board in his new TN31 thread at CPF.

Just so you understand what a huge accomplishment this is consider that the massive Power on Board HID spotlight does 530Kcd on my current test setup.

I think these were supposed to be good, but I don’t know their lux rating.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Replacement-Battery-ETek-35W-HID-Spotlight-/150456987956?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D4437499472448299019%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D150456987956%26

And yes I know that’s for a battery, but the picture of the light is what I am talking about.

Hey Brad,

Does the POB have to be in working condition? What if one needs a ballast to get up and running or perhaps has a messy cutout on the rear battery cover where someone tried to add some type of meter back there? Are you able to fix one in this condition?

Or, what about if someone had an old, but in new condition, THOR 10,000,000 Candle power Halogen spotlight?

Either of these suit your purpose?

Daylighter, is it a true Vector Power On Board? Either way, congrats Brad! (I'm guessing he'll do that since he has 2 TN31s)

We may have to do that. Let me see about this one first. But I am interested depending on price and shipping to and from. It’s pretty heavy.
