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.

Unfortunately this has happened to me with no less than two of my Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB Lights. The good news is that they are warrantied for life. The only reason I still buy and recommend this product is because when it fails I simply return it to my local bike shop and receive a new one.

'Had this problem... turned out that the contacts weren't mating properly between the flea and the dock. I remedied by shaving back some of the plastic surrounding the contacts with a pocket knife.

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.

My Flea Taillight won't charge, I'm using a brand new "AA" battery, (hooked up - red to + and black wire to - ) I've reset the "light from demo mode (holding down the button for 20"...

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.
