It is much smaller than I expected (which is very good), because I was afraid it being too big. But the one easily can carry it even in his or her wallet. So, the size is about two match boxes put one on another, and it is made from very thin yet strong plastic. The main lense will zoom about 3x, and additional lense (its the round shape lense in the main lense) will zoom ~5x. The lense itself is crystal clear, so theres no problem while reading. And theres a very thiny LED light bulb at the back of the magnifier to read in the dark. Actually, very lovely item.

Total rubbish, this is what I can say. It is not working at all (China made, what to expect?) and I am not a repairer to fix it. I don't have the tools.

Only after I received the parcel and found out the light on the magnifier doesn't work (I even changed the batteries) I went to review section and lerned this is a common thing. The sale on the item sadly makes much sense to me now.

not too hot. sorry i got. light is good. problem is magnification is not enough power. the little spot magnifier is perfect magnification but the large full size magnifier is useless. i wanted it to read vitamin bottle ingredients etc. the spot part works but the big part is worthless. i got on sale for $2 iherb. but $ down drain. for $5 including shipping ebay had nice higher power china ones . same credit card magnifier deal only 5x instead of 2x like this one. somebody email iherb telling them to have chinese factory remake them with 5x magnification . wish i could send it back. but cost more to send back then get back.oh well live learn.

As so many said here before, the product arrived dead. After opening the battery compartment, which wasn't easy btw, I measured the two 3V batteries and they were 1.4V and 2.4V. So they were pretty much dead. Maybe that's why this product is 75% off?

This has to be the worst iherb purchase in my many years shopping with them. product came dead, the battery compartment cannot be open easily... selling this item is doing a disservice to your iherb customers!

This arrived with the light NOT working at all. Don't bother even getting it, no matter how cheaply iHerb sells it for.

The light doesn't work at all. I thought that the batery is not in, but it's impossible to take it out.

Do not select this unless you wish to add a surcharge to your order. It never, ever worked. It is a piece of junk you get to recycle for the privilege of paying $1.00 more for your order. For $1.00, it's not even worth calling to complain about it, but co-incidentally I have placed fewer orders with iHerb since this experience. Did they make a bad purchase from China and are trying to recoup their costs?
