very bright, but has problems

Comments about Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB LED Headlight Black:

I have purchased a bunch of these lights for myself, my kids and their friends. They are very very bright as a blinky light, but are not intended to light up the road. But I'm confident these lights will be seen by on coming traffic. My biggest complaint is the charging mounting system. It does not use a cord, but instead has magnetic posts which stick, magnetically, to the tiny USB charge adapter that you plug into your computer or phone charger. The problem is the metal contacts on the bottom of the light rust after a few days, preventing it from conducting electricity from the mount. Also, the light easily falls off the adapter because the magnets are not very strong. Before every charge I have to clean the contacts with a needle file. Once I do this, it will take a charge, and the light works great. I should also note that several of the lights were defective right out of the box, or the batteries went bad within months. I returned these lights to blackburn, and they replaced them free of charge. I think a better design would have incorporated a mini usb cable, like all the other lights on the market.

    Comments about Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB LED Headlight Black:

    Velcro strap that comes with the Flea is too large a diameter for standard handlebars to be able to tighten down. If this won't work with my bottom line Trek 2015 model, what will it work with?
    Spoke with Blackburn directly and they said "too bad", you can purchase another kind of silicon strap that is smaller. I asked them where in their publicity does it say this won't fit most bikes and to buy another strap for additional money?
    I'll be asking Nashbar for a refund...

    Battery life is lacking, it shuts off on its own during a ride. The USB charger is a little flakey.

        Light was attached to bike all winter inside on the trainer. When it came time to use it in the spring it would not charge. I don't think I ever even used it outside.

          Comments about Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB LED Headlight Black:

          I have used this light for over a year, primarily in strobe function while riding in daylight hours in urban setting. The charge lasts a long time and the unit recharges pretty quickly. It is small and easy to move from bike to bike. I can't measure how much more visible it makes me but I expect it has prevented at least a handful of vehicles from turning into my path. I don't go out without it.

            I use this headlight on 3 of my road/touring bikes. I do some trail riding on the C&O in Maryland that has tunnels that need light. The velcro attachment allowes me to aim the light right where I need it when I need it. Holds a charge and I can charge it with my solar charger when needed.

            I purchased this light for my pre-dawn traning/commute. The light throws for a decent distance at ~22 mph.

            After about 2 weeks of use the light started to fade near the end of my one hour commute. At about 3 weeks of use the light stopped charging.

              Comments about Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB LED Headlight Black:

              The size surprised me...it is a very small light...but very powerful and I was anxious to use it on a late night ride. It worked great for the first ride...easy to mount and plenty of light to maintain a 19-20 mph speed. However, it would not charge when placed on the USB charger. The instructions ask you to run the light until it turns off automatically then charge until full...as indicated by a green blinking LED. Did that prior to the first ride...charge held for about an hour but will not recharge. Red light stays on indicating less than 25% charge regarless of how long it is on the USB charger. It has been on the charger for as long as 18 hours. Now the light is functional for about 20 seconds and is useless to me for it's intended purpose. I very unhappy with it an am sending it back today. I will be looking to purchase a different light as well.

                I use this in a commuter bike. The bright setting lights up dark allies with no problem. In flash mode, I think it would be impossible for on-coming traffic to NOT see me.
