Blackburn front light - missing charger

Postby lucass_247 » 6 Jan 2021, 10:51am

Good morning all;

I've recently got back into cycling, I did a 103 mile route for charity a couple of months back and am planning another similar ride as soon as possible.

With the shorter days I will definitely be needing my lights; I have found my front light, the Blackburn light as shown in the pictures but I cannot find my charger adaptor for it.

Long shot I know but does anyone have a spare or know where I can get hold of one? I can't find one for toffee on the net!

Many thanks in advance!

Luke

Looks like the disc which clamps to the back of the light magnetically is the charger head which should have a usb cable attached.

If you search for blackburn scorch front light you can find the PDF instructions which show it.

At the last count:- Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D

Yep it's the magnetic dics usb charger that I'm missing. I cannot for the life of me find one anywhere online. The whole light shows as unavailable or discontinued everywhere.

I'm hoping (massively) that someone may have the magnetic charger and not the light, therefore allowing me to buy the charger off of them!

I can live it hope! :)

Contact Blackburn and see if they keep spares available, a DIY bodge shouldn't be difficult, how's your soldering skills. :wink:
