Light Head Magnifying Glass
A couple of months ago I reviewed the 20X Magnifying Glasses. They were too powerful and the magnification was not adjustable. These multi-functional LED Light Head Magnifier Magnifying Glasses are way better. Although they’re cheap to buy, and very cheaply made, they do work pretty well. You get the LED magnifier headband, and 4 different optical grade lenses: 1.2X, 1.8X, 2.5X, and 3.5X magnification. The headband is powered by 2 x AAA batteries, which are not included. There’s a wide field of view and the you can easily use this headband over your own reading glasses. The bracket can that holds the lens can be rotated upward or downward for 60 degree, and left or right for 25 degree. The efficiency of LED lamp is over 10 times of ordinary the peanut bulb. (Even though the instructions tell you how to replace the peanut bulbs, there are none. They’ve been replaced with much brighter, more efficient LED bulbs.) This device does let you can see small things very clearly, including fine print, but make adjustments carefully because everything is made with cheap-feeling plastic. It’s sold under many brand names and at many prices on Amazon. I picked the cheapest which was under $13 as of 10/30/14.
