Re: Heider CF2

Ijust came across a banner ad with this "Heider CF2". The specs look a little ambitious: 480 lumens giving a 400m throw, and using an XML U2 (bright but not second generation XM-L2). Still, not too bad for the quoted price. You get a TIR optic, a charger and 18650 battery of unstated brand or capacity.


I guess the cpf crowd would toss the charger and battery, put in their own battery, and maybe mod the pill with the latest LED.

It doesn't take much Googling to find out that this outfit is suspected on other flashlight sites of being disreputable.

Necroish post, but thought you'd all like to know...the company 'Heider' seems to be a rebrand of xeno's and sipiks. Their AGX and Cube models are the Xeno g/f 42 and Xeno Cube. Or maybe they'll say that xeno and sipik are a rebrand of them, but whatever...

Anyways, saw their "supertorch" link on facebook and was quite a bit peeved to see that they charge 130 Euros for the Xeno g42, not including import duties internationally and such. :/ (not to mention, they've used irrelevant pictures from someone's reviews as selling material.)

Heider CFX

Does anyone here have experience with the Heider CFX: cfx.supertorch.com/en/index.php.

The website has a package that includes LiOn batteries and a charger. The low price makes me cautious.
Then again new products sometimes have low introductory prices.

Any opinions?

Re: Heider CFX

Low price? It looks pretty expensive for such overstated numbers. It definitely doesn't have 750m throw and the beamshot is a fake - it comes from a flashlight with classic reflector. Battery and charger are worth $8, not $38. They also sell cheap chinese flashlight for $50 instead of $5 (with a fake beamshot as well).

Re: Heider CFX

I'm not familiar with the flahlight you listed, but here in one of their real bargains a flashlight that sells for around $5 from most Chinese sellers, they list for $49.90. If thats an example of their low prices I'd stay well clear of that site.

Check out the notice on that web page:
"Dear Visitor, We have been seeing that certain fake and low quality products are tried to be sold under Heider brand on some web sites and shopping on these web sites cause significant victimizations.
Heider Products are unique due to their design and technical specifications and they are all register products; legal processes have been initiated against the people and organizations attempting to counterfeit.

Emphasis mine. This is the ubiquitous Sipik SK68 clone that has been around since the Cree Q3 XP-E or XR-E was new news.

Re: Heider CFX

They are pretty pathetic, the original design comes from Nitecore Extreme, chinese budget manufacturers copied it (and shrunk) and here we have Sipik SK68 and derivatives. And now they're selling exact same light (with exact old emitter) for $50 and claim that it's unique product. Pretty arrogant company.

Heider.....Anyone?

HI there!

I just came across a banner on FB, advertising for a brand i never heard of. Anyone know about Heider?
Very nice looking homepage, and the lights looks pretty impressive. My only concern is, that non of you Flashoholics talks about the brand.

Are they any good?

Have a great weekend everyone.

Re: Heider.....Anyone?

And I assume the purpose of this thread is to get us talking about them?

Sorry, but this smells suspiciously like veiled advertising.

A quick glance at their website shows that they use the old "over exposed beam shot" trick to make the light appear brighter than it really is. I also notice that they don't state actual output, preferring instead to hype the 300m throw distance, nor do they specify run times. And while they boast an IPX8 rating, they don't state what the actual specifications are but simply say that it's "equipped with a special insulating material", whatever that means.

To be frank, I'm not particularly impressed.

Definitely. There was just a thread yesterday asking about this brand, which I've never seen mentioned before.

klip and the other user are on different side of the world.
Because it's impossible for people on different sides of the world to coordinate an "astroturfing" campaign?

I don't know, I just find it suspicious that we have two similar threads about an obscure flashlight showing up in a short amount of time, though I suppose it could be a coincidence.

Plus the last time this happened is was another crappy "we've rebadged Ultrafire OEM parts and quadrupled the price" mob.

For the prices they ask: No.

For the same thing sold by many other sellers under another name and for about 10% of what Heider ask: Yes, but don't expect them to be as good as a reputable mid-market brand.
