    Blackburn Flea help!

    Hey guys.

    Ive had my Flea for a few months. I havent used it in awhile. I went to use it today and the light was dead. I tried to charge it but it didnt take a charge.

    Did i drain the battery too much? How can i get it to charge again?

    Check the connection points on the charger. If there is build up it won't charge. Try using a knife to scrape it away. Good luck

    Ohh I just remembered my flea has been through the washer and dryer twice and it still is fine.

    Take it back to the dealer. Most Blackburn products are covered by a pretty extended warranty.

    Make sure its on there properly too. IIRC they are finicky.

    Personally Id take it back and get one of these:

    I traded my Fleas for these and am way happier. The plug is integrated into the unit so there is no extra parts and the mount is more robust.
