Heider CF1 – It’s Not A Lightsaber It’s A Super Torch

If you are one of those people that love the nature and all of its delights, or you are a huntsman that loves hunting in the dark you surely need a torch. But an ordinary torch, or a gas lamp not always suffices the need of looking in the dark, giving you only few meters of light and to buy a night scope is quite expensive, so what is the next best thing?

The company Metem tech. has made a super torch that is the solution to this problem and it is quite cheap and comes in a small package great for traveling.

It has a built in LED light that can give out up to 260 lumen lighting power that is good enough to light up to 200m with a special attachment on the top of the torch, which will focus the beam. When compared to the regular torches that share the same size it delivers up to 100% greater power. The torch has also the option to zoom in or out, focusing the light, giving the user the possibility to focus it on a distant spot or to have a wide coverage on a short one. The torch body is made out of anodized aluminum that is water proof and the whole torch is 10cm in length, which makes it pocket portable.  It even has recharging batteries that have a capacity of 3000mAh that will hold out for a long usage and also it can pack a normal 3.7 AA battery.  The LED diode has an amazing active time-span of 100.000 hours. The overall weight of the torch is measly 65g.

This amazing torch is available to buy on the net, for an awesome price of just $39.9.

My order came through very quickly BUT...I think it would have been good business for Metem Technology to advise, before ordering, that their charger is made for European receptacles and not North American.

I ordered mine and it took approximately 10 days for receipt in the U.S.  They provided me with the shipping information; it shipped on Friday and arrived UPS on Monday.  You can't beat that.  I personally am very happy with the unit itself although I was a bit surprised at the charger being for a European plug.  But I can get one of those for $1.50.  I don't think you can fault Metem for the attempted collection of an import charge.  The UPS shipping charge is included in the price.  Maybe you should take the import charge up with your government

These Metem idiots advertise this torch as lighting "up to 300 meters"; apparently ignorant of the fact that light travels infinite distances. They are obviously dominated by marketing types who do not know what they are talking about.

Me again (Mike). DO NOT BUY FROM THESE THIEVES ! 

I still have nothing. My order went to them in January, and I have sent many emails to ask for either a refund or a torch, but they don't even reply. These people are the worst rogues, cheats and thieves ! I will NEVER deal with  them again, and have already warned a lot of my friends. They obviously have no intention of ever honouring the contract, and have stolen my money.

I ordered this torch in early January, so over 3 months ago. To date, I have had nothing but promises. They supposedly sent it and it was rejected and returned to Turkey. This means either that they put the wrong address on the package, or they made the whole thing up. I have sent them lots of emails, but for almost 2 months they have not even bothered to reply any more. I believe these people are thieves, and the few good comments here were probably planted by them. I would never buy anything from them again.

I was asked for £24 by UPS and so I told them to take it away. Two days later it was delivered to a neighbour marked 'no charge'. The receipt says 20 euros for the torch and 16 for the delivery?

After complaining to Metem Tecknoloji they said it was a mistake and they said they would refund the extra payment which, after a bit of nagging and chasing, they did in a Paypal credit. So for me, at least, they delivered on their promise. I suggest that you all ask for a refund as well - and threaten to take it to a Paypal dispute as I did. I still think it is a good torch and better value than the competition (The Sunday Times in London just did a comparison of torches and none of them appeared to be better value or performers than the Heider.

I agree that it is a very good torch. However beware the promise that it will be shipped free anywhere in the world. I recently bought this torch and had to pay almost the same again on delivery in shipping charges. The Turkish suppliers, Metem Tecknoloji, have promised to refund this but to date have not done so. I have opened a dispute process with Paypal. I will post again if I ever get my money back.

Me he decepcionado sobre la compra que he hecho de la linterna Heider CF1 se encuentra en España por la mitad de precio, es decir lo que me parece un descaro que el articulo valga 20,00€ y te cobre UPS 19,90€por tramites.Tengan en cuenta todo esto a la hora de comprar,pues compramos a la ligera sin mirar los detalles , como hacemos con la letra chica de los seguros.

If you reject the delivery they will take it away, then re deliver it a day or so later with NO charge. You do not need to pay the fee. Also just to annoy you Bill, sorry, you can ind this torch online under a different name for £3. I was gutted to but bloody I didn't pay a further £15+ for customs charges. Blinded by the light maybe!?!

I have just paid for this item and quite disappointed they refused to put the postal in the cost. I will also refuse it if they ask me for £15 and request a refund from the company. Thanks, Barry for that idea.

Hi. Yes, I bought one for 49.00 US dollars (about £34.00). UPS charged £11.01 "Customs clearance" and £12.01 import duty (total, £23.02). I calculated import duty at £6.00!! How did you get on at PayPal. JohnnyMac

Hi.. I'm in the same position. After paying £37 via paypal, UPS asked for another £15 at the door for import and admin charges! I have emailed Metem and am awaiting a reply. Will follow up with paypal shortly

Same here, UPS tried to deliver it yesterday and told me i had to £15.62 in fees. £4 odd on tax and rest is their fee. ive opened a paypal case to reclaim as they do not warn you or even tell you they are outside of the EU. Very Cunning!!

It's an European plug. Just buy a cheap adapter. I don't see the problem. You can't expect them to produce a charger for every different plug type in the world.
