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: 1.5X50

Field of view: Vertically, about 10 lines; horizontally 5 or 6 words (nearly a column in a newspaper).

Lens material: plastic

Origin / brand: I bought these as a 'job lot' from an importer, origin is China.

Applications

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, not the most powerful, not the largest, not the crispest image - but it's a magnifier, it works! And it's only £2.00.
