Cover all the bases with the BLACKBURN® Flea 2.0 USB front/rear bicycle light combo. It includes a front light with 4 brilliant white LEDs and a rear light with 4 super-bright red LEDs; steady and flashing modes make you visible to oncoming traffic. The innovative color-coded LED fuel gauge makes it easy to know when your power is getting low, and the included USB smart charger works with both lights.
Comments about BLACKBURN Flea 2.0 USB Front and Rear Bicycle Light Combo:
To qualify this review, I purchased USB lights based on recommendations from friends who ride rode bikes because of the ability to charge them versus replace batteries. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on lights so I got the front & back flea 2.0 combo. I'm putting this same review on both front and back so everyone knows NOT to waste their money buying this product. I purchased mine from Sports Authority.
This light looks great and in theory would have been perfect except for the utter lack in quality and wrongly advertised runtimes. I always ran my light flashing and NEVER got the 5 hour runtime they advertise, in fact I barely got between 1 to 2 hour runtime out of them on a full charge.
These lights also completely stop charging within less than 6 months on the provided USB charger and there's no other way to charge them. I don't even believe that replacing the USB charger would have charged them.
Within the first 30 days my front light had stopped charging completely so I replaced it and within 6 months both pair just stopped charging. I keep very good care of my equipment so I know for a fact it was due to anything that I did. I sent mine back to the Manufacturer and am requesting a FULL refund, I had to pay for the shipping back to them and am still waiting for my refund as it's confirmed they received it 2 weeks ago on Monday April 14, 2014.
Long story short, ALWAYS save your receipt while it's covered under Manufacturer warranty and DON'T WASTE your money on this product. I had 2 pairs already exhibit the same defects described above.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
