hand lens - 10x LED illuminated folding magnifier
Two tiny LED's illuminate whatever you are looking at. Wide field of view, a decent 10x lens for the price. These are larger than the other folding hand lenses we offer, 2" long and a hair under 1" thick. We have been using one off and on for over a year and haven't killed the battery yet, and yes, we did turn off the lamp after we took the photo. These come with the battery installed.
If you haven't used this type of lens, the trick is to bring it close to your eye, or to your glasses, by resting your hand against your cheek, then bringing the specimen up close to the lens. The Sherlock Holmes method, with the magnifier held at arms length or out in front of you, won't work. It won't take long to polish your technique.
There's a shoelace loop on these, so you can hang one of these around your neck if you don't want to carry it in your pocket. Geologists have their hand lenses around their necks, doctors their stethoscopes. What's wrong with a pocket?
These have glass lenses, a black metal frame, and a screw at each pivot point, which you should keep an eye on. A tiny tool that opens the battery compartment is included.
