I have a very old (10+ years) spot light that is branded Power on Board Sport Spot. I have not been able to find all that much information on the internets, granted, I didn't really look all that hard. The problem I have is it won't turn on/ charge. I plug it into the wall and the charging light comes on but that's it. I have a couple questions here, A. Is it worthy to try and fix it? B. Would there be any decent, budget minded, upgrades for the battery (lead acid)? C. Would there be any decent bulb upgrades (incandescent)? D. What kind of lumens/lux should I expect?
I hail from the LED side of lights, so my concepts on lights in general will probably be a bit different than what you guys are used to. I would like around 100,000 lux with a nice fat spot (I know, depends on the reflector) so that probably means 1500 lumens minimum, 3000 ideal. Don't really know how easy that is to obtain in a spot light, from the little I've read it looks like you guys have that down pat so hopefully no worries. Also, I am looking forward to doing some basic mod work on this thing and for just the experience if nothing else. So feel free to bounce some cheap and easy ideas off me.
Cheers from the LED side of life
