Delightfully easy to use. Tiny, lightweight, versatile. The perfect back-up light.
I LOVE how easy-to-use this compact rear light is! Press to turn on - press to cycle through settings (steady, even flash, and another flash setting that I assume uses a little less power with a sort of pause in between sets of flashing) - press one more time to turn off. When you turn it off, the button will shine either green (good to go, no charge needed) or red (charge it soon). Awesome. So straightforward, easy, intuitive, and useful.
It's also tiny. I actually bought this light the day after daylight saving's time ended when I found myself about to leave work... in the dark. With my usual lights (a Light & Motion set) at home - whoops! I picked up this rear light and the corresponding front light to get me home that day and to use as a back-up. They're so tiny, they make the perfect emergency set to carry with your flat repair kit in case you get stuck out after dark or your usual lights fail.
The strap that comes with this light is just a super-simple velcro strap. On my seatpost, that means the light is aimed a little downward. Still pretty visible, but I've mostly been using this light to supplement my Light & Motion rear light - I clip this one onto my messenger bag for a little extra visibility in a slightly different direction (my bag aims the light a little left). The light itself has a belt-clip-style clip on the back that you can slide the strap through OR attach to pretty much anything else. It's actually such a simple design (thin metal) that it can be a little annoying to get on and off of things, but once it's on I don't worry about it slipping off.
I use this light for running in addition to cycling, since it's so small and lightweight. I clip it to the back of my jacket or waistband and feel more confident that I'm visible when running in the dark.
Charging is pretty easy. The charger itself looks a little fragile to me, but so far so good. The charger and the light have contact points that connect easily, and a light comes on and flashes every couple of seconds to let you know the light is charging. Really really easy-peasy. I won't use this light as my main rear light just 'cause it's not as bright as my Light & Motion (and the velcro strap is not an ideal attachment system), but I LOVE how user-friendly the Flea 2.0 is.
Thank you for your feedback.
