  • Cheap and Useful

    Pros:

    This kind of tool is indispensable for close-up work on electronics, crafts etc. This is a way to gain access to a cheap version of something that would normally be prohibitively expensive. I find the three different lenses to be useful, normally I use the middle power. The light is excellent, putting the light just where it is needed.

    Cons:

    The whole thing is a bit fragile. The build quality could be better. Mine came with a wrongly fixed nose piece so I had to bend the nose piece wires to get it to fit. The field of view is a bit restricted, the lenses could be bigger.

    OtherThoughts:

    The light is great, but it's a pity the batteries are so small. They can't hold much juice.

    The cardboard box it comes in is useful for storage, with places for the different lenses (and a screwdriver for the battery box). But, you can't quite fit it in the box in the assembled state.

    Bottomline:

    I've just ordered my second one. But, I'd like a better quality version.
