    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Light is fairly bright. The module holding the batteries, bulb and lens clip is made of plastic. The frame itself is made of steel and seems to be rather sturdy.

    Cons:

    A number of minor Cons, but with care, they shouldn't be an issue. The lenses are made of plastic and seem to be rather easy to scratch. Like the previous reviewer, I would be concerned about the clip that holds the lens in place, as it is plastic and with rough use, could be easily broken.



    The led takes (3) 1193 batteries (included). Accessing the batteries requires removal of (4) tiny screws. Fortunately, a screwdriver is provided, but the screws are easy to fumble and loose. If you open the battery compartment, make sure to not the orientation of the batteries as it is not marked. The slot on the left takes one battery, + side up. The slot on the right holds two batteries, one on top of the other, with the - sides up.



    The on/off switch is flaky. pushing the switch to the off position does not turn the LED off. Sometimes you have to jiggle the switch to get it to turn off.

    OtherThoughts:

    No indication or labeling of the battery chamber as to orientation or battery size. Make sure it is off before you store the glasses. Make sure you keep the box so you can keep everything in one place.

    Bottomline:

    Handy for most home users who have occasionally need extra light and magnification. Can be used on top of eyeglasses.
