    Thanks for reporting this issue. I was able to reproduce it. For now you can work around it as described below. I will make a fix available in the next MSP430 package update through the board manager.
    copy <energia directory>\hardware\tools\DSLite\DebugServer\drivers\MSP430.dll to <energia directory>\hardware\tools\msp430\bin\ edit <energia directory>\hardware\energia\msp430\boards.txt an change the 2 occurrences of rf2500 with tilib restart energia and you should be able to upload to the MSP-EXP430G2 with MSP430G2553. I have also filed an issue on github here: https://github.com/energia/msp430-lg-core/issues/12

    My high tech, German street legal, bicycle light failed. Corrosion on the battery contacts, one day it worked, the other not.

    So I cracked the damn thing open. Solid build quality, waterproof,  but not built to be repairable.

    As far as I remember, I bought it back in 2006.

    So what is inside:  An MSP430F1122, doing all the business:

    -         Battery charge termination (four AA NIMH)
    -         Two LED intensity levels PWM
    -         2 color status led (blink duty cycle would indicate remaining charge)
    -         Pushbutton, long for on/off, short for low/high
    The electronics still works fine, but would need a lot of duct tape to make it a cycle light again :-(

    Interesting tear down.  I did DIY bicycle tail lamp using MSP430 back in 2011. Still working. Using 2xAA Alkaline cells. Running for more than 3 months in the battery. 3x4 red LEDs. BC107 transistors. One push button switch. Sleep in LPM4. LED driving from PWM. I have't measured the currents.
    20 uA is too much!
