    Chad's favorite Giz Wiz Show gadget of 2016

    Chad loved the endlessly named: Neewer 60X-100X Optical Zoom Mobile Phone LED Microscope Lens with Universal Clamp for iPhone 6S plus/6S/6/6plus/5 5c 5s,Samsung Galaxy S5 G900H /S4 i9500/S3 i9300/ Note 2 II/ Note 3 III/Note 4 IV

    This 60X-100X zoom microscope lens for iPhone 6 (and of course all the other devices mentioned in the title above) comes with a universal clamp and bright LED light. Chad paid $12.99 and it was Amazon Prime. 

     

    Chad picked this device as his favorite of all the gadgets he showed on The Giz Wiz Show in 2016. Watch this show which will have Chad's video and you'll see just how much he loves it. But, there was one downside; it had a wonky LED switch. At first Chad thought the light wouldn't work at all, which would actually make the device useless since it must be so close to the object you want to magnify. But he got it working and we saw in great detail the lettering on a quarter and even the fibers in a dollar bill! He also saw a bit of fingerprints. This device does magnify a lot, but as you'll see it hard to zoom out since the lowest magnification is 60X, But, Chad thought this was a great buy at about $13.00. Be sure to watch the video of the show to judge for yourself. UPDATE: As of 12/28/16 it was only $7.99 and still Amazon Prime. Amazon link:
