Try cleaning the contacts with a cotton swab and som isopropyl alcohol.
Let those dry.
Use a paper clip, or other small pointy object to clear the area around the contact points on the light so the recharger can fully "snap" into place.
Attach a battery you know has a good charge.
Turn on the light.
Did the light turn on?
If so, great, turn it off, and if it is blinking, let it recharge.
If it didn't turn on, isn't blinking and won't hold a charge after this process, return it to Blackburn and enjoy the benefits of your lifetime warranty.

Are battery replaceble


I was able to replace the original NiCad AA batteries with a NMiH 2.4V 1500mAH (3.6 Wh) cordless phone battery Uniden BT-1015. Take out the three screws holding the back on. loosen the battery clamp, slide out the old battery and unplug it, cut off the plug on the new battery, strip each wire about 1/4 inch, push the new wires into the old wire plugs maintaining color, black to black, red to red, fasten new battery under battery clamp, adjust new battery so back of case goes on, fasten back on with original screws, charge new battery with original battery charger over night. I got my new Jensen brand battery at Meijers.

Switronix Tl-50 won't turn on


I too have had a problem with mine no longer charging. I talked to the manufacture. Since the cord light is on however my torchlights charging light is not on they said could be the batt or could be a bad wire in the charger. I've been debating whether to send it in for fix or buy a new batt to try first. For yours I would send in for repair. Unfortunately these lights only come with a 1 yr manufacturing warranty so if you've had it over a yr you will end up paying 60-130 was the price range I was quoted depending on the problem.

I need to know how to wire the batteries together on my shoprider jimmie chair so they will charge


If the charger is 24 volts and you have 2 12 volt batteries they have to equal 24 volts , so wire the batteries terminals red to black and connect the charger to the other terminals red to red and black to black.

After charging the Blackburn Rear Light, it won't turn off. Any suggestions on how to get it to turn off.


Your Flea iscontinuing to flash because it acquired extra energy during the charge. Once the extra energy has been burned it will shut off. To help preventthis try to charge the Flea for no longer than an hour to an hour and a half,and don't charge the Flea after every use.

How do I insert the battery into the Blackburn flea?


It's a rechargable light, with a built in battery and no supposed user replacable battery. You need the USB dock to charge it either through your computer or using the optional Blackburn solar panel.

I cannot get Blackburn flea to take a charge. It only the 2nd time I am recharging the rear flea. Its a brand new battery.


It might be stuck in 'display mode' (described on the package). Try holding down the button for twenty seconds until you see the signal. Then try turning it on normally again.
