  • Nice gadget to make you look nerdy

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

    Pros:

    + light and portable

    + long run time on a pair of AA batteries

    + decent optics and magnification

    + increases interest of kids in nature and things around them

    Cons:

    - doesn't stand stable without holding it

    - fixed magnification doesn't allow you to zoom or switch to the most appropriate magnification level

    OtherThoughts:

    I have been carrying this item with me in a belt pouch since I got it, and have been using it almost daily. It is a source for a lot of educative fun.

    Bottomline:

    The contact which turns on the LED wasn't working very well when I received it. Without legible documenation, it took some experimenting until I knew how to turn it on.

    Luckily the switch works allright now.
