Excellent quality with great brightness but not perfect.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blackburn Flea 2.0 USB LED Light - (Sports)
The Blackburn Flea is a great small bike light, It offers an excellent amount of light for it's size compared to the kind of bike light you might buy in a supermarket or from a catalogue. You do however pay a little extra for this upgrade but you'll probably end up with a better value product.
Cycling is my main form of transport at University and I found this Light works perfectly for me. It's USB charger means I can juice it up whenever I'm at a computer so it's always ready to go and saves me money on batteries. It's light while not as good as largest and most expensive lights, It's more than capable of shining the way on an unlit cycle track through woodland and making drivers notice me, only being slightly hampered by the fairly narrow beam of light (I've seen worse from friends cheaper lights). It's small enough that I can put it in my back pocket and forget about it till I'm back on my bike.
This light isn't without issues though, I have found the strap is slightly to long in that when rapped around my handlebars the hooked Velcro mostly goes behind the light instead of latching onto the looped part of the strap. This means I can't tighten the strap as much as I'd like to as it wont hook up. also, as my handlebars are rather curvy it can be rather difficult to get the unit to be flat and face straight ahead on them.
I'd give the light a 8/10 overall purely because of the strap. otherwise this product was exactly what I wanted I would recommend it to others.
TL;DR - bright light, decent battery, compact, strap is a bit long for me.
