This is a very low value item. We have a minimum order charge of 7.50 (6.25 + VAT). Is this the only item you require? You may wish to buy more than one, or add some other items to the order.

{Technical}

Magnification / lens size in mm: 8X23

Maximum working distance: n/a (it's closed in)

Origin / brand: we import these from China

Construction / presentation: plastic lens, plastic casing, supplied in a printed cardboard box.

{Applications / Quality}

Generally, these are high power (like loupes) but on stands so that you don't have to hold them. Since they stand (i.e. stand flat) they are intended for use on flat objects such as stamps and coins, prints, paintings and photographs, and fabrics. Some are on 'open' stands, so you could use very fine (VERY fine) tools underneath; most have 'closed' stands - see each photograph.

Specifically, the bottom half of the stand is clear to let in light and...um...I can't think of anything else to say about this...it's OK, it works.

{Alternatives}
Not quite what you were looking for? You want a magnifier that rests on the page for reading? We have a few of these, especially designed for the partially-sighted, see our rest-on-page magnifiers

Too small? Need a stand magnifier that is larger, with space to work under? See our large stand magnifiers (bench magnifiers).

Not good enough?! Need a microscope? click here.

Almost right, but you DO need something considerably more powerful (a large single lens is ALWAYS low-power), AND it must still give stereo vision. Try the type of head-worn magnifier surgeons use. click here. These are good for watch repairing or for work on micro-circuits.

{Is it 30X or 10X?}

There is no way this is 30X magnification, it's 10X magnification.

How do I know?

Three reasons.

Firstly, I'm an expert, I can seeit's not 30X.

Secondly, this is not a matter of opinion, it can be measured, see see our conversion chart.

Thirdly, I import these from the manufacturers (they come in packs of 480) - the last time I ordered the 10X they said (I paraphrase), "It will take us six weeks to make the 10X because our machines are set up to print '30X' on these, but if you want them marked '30X' then we can make them in two weeks.'

{Technical}
Magnification / lens size in mm: 2X 80X80

Field of view: Vertically: about 25 lines. Horizontally: about 1.5 newspaper columns, or most of a page of a paperback book.

Lens material: glass

Origin / brand: we import these from China

Presentation / extras: plain cardboard box

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, readers are for reading text. That includes books, magazines and newspapers; maps and plans. Also good for the 'small print' on forms or the ingredients on food packets - providing it's not TOO small (or your close sight isn't VERY bad).

Specifically, the lens can be tilted for the most comfortable reading angle. For instance, for reading a newspaper on a table will find it comfortable to rest your hand on the table and tilt the lens; for map reading in a car you would keep the lens straight. What is so clever about this magnifier is that the four lights (one on each corner) give an even illumination no matter how the lens is tilted.

{Alternatives}
Need something MUCH more powerful? Try a small (pocket-size) general purpose magnifier, click here. But please do remember that the more powerful the lens, the smaller the field of view, so these small (pocket-size) magnifiers will show only one or two words at a time.

Credit-Card Size Fresnel Magnifier in Pouch

Credit-Card Size Fresnel Magnifier in Pouch

Ref: CCMAG

{Summary}
About 3X magnification. 0.4mm thick, and exactly the size of a credit card.

The 'lenses' are cut into the plastic as micro-grooves (very clever), as invented by Augustin-Jean Fresnel (pronounced "Fren-nel") in about 1818, and originally used as the 'magnifiers' around the lights of lighthouses. To use a Fresnel magnifier you must hold it a few inches above the object, they do not work by resting on top of the object.

{Technical}
Magnification / lens size in mm: About 3X, credit-card-size.

Field of view: vertically, 10 to 12 lines; horizontally, about one newspaper column.

Lens material: plastic

Origin / brand: imported by us from China.

Presentation: it comes in its own clear plastic "credit card holder".

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, these are flat (well, not 100% two-dimensional, but very thin), the thinnest can be cut with a modelling knife if you want to make it smaller; they can fit into credit card holder or be used as a book mark.

Specifically, this is the smallest and neatest in that it is exactly the size of a credit card and will fit into your credit card holder or wallet, so you will never be without a magnifier. Unless you go out without your credit card holder or wallet. You can also make a cardboard 'stand' to mount it over a mobile phone display or small sat-nav.

{Alternatives}
Conventional reading magnifiers with handles are better in optical quality click here. And small (pocket-size) general purpose folding magnifiers are more powerful. click here.
