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.
