Much smaller than expected
Much smaller than expected
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.

Light doesn't work

I feel ungrateful, complaining about something I got for free, but the magnifier's light didn't work upon receipt. After removing the screw that should allow access to the battery compartment, the cover refused to budge. Another reviewer mentioned getting it off with a sharp knife, which I will try. It magnifies well with bright ambient light, but the LED light would make this much better.

Dead On Arrival. Looks nice, but the led light doesn't work. After removing the screw, it was really hard to open up the case (You need a really sharp knife. Inside there's 2 x batteries (CR 2016). Hope those are working.

this is just gimmicky... the magnifier is not even and it is harder to use it than to actually try to read since it just show a letter at a time. About the light.... no interest at all
O led não funcionou.

iHerbe Good Magnifier with LED Light

I bought this on a special sale with iHerb. The magnifying lenses work okay, although they are somewhat small because some of the space is taken up for the light, which did not work in the unit I received. I was going to try to order a new one, but I don't see them listed any longer, so perhaps they've gone out of stock.
Would not order again

Good purse magnifier, but the light is far too dim and small to be useful.
