  • 2 magnifiers is not better than 1

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - LED is bright

    - Each 'glass' works as they should, with usable magnifying power.

    - Build quality is not bad. The glasses can be pulled out smoothly individually or both at the same time.

    Cons:

    - Both 'glasses' seem to have the same magnifying power. Stacking them together does result in high magnifying power. However, there is just one big problem - only the center part can be seen clearly, magnified. Anywhere beyond a 3-5mm diameter at the center, it will be blurred. So effectively you are getting just a tiny magnifying glass when stacked (higher magnifying power nonetheless).

    - Too bulky as key chain. (Insert "is it me or is there a key chain in your pocket" joke here... ya, I know, lame joke, but I have to get to 500 chars :D )

    OtherThoughts:

    - There is only 1 LED, not 2 as the product title says

    - Mine came in red, not black as the product title says

    - When the glasses are stacked, if you move a bit further away from the subject, things appear upside down :)

    Bottomline:

    Go for a single lens version, unless you really need a tiny magnifying glass with higher power.
