Good quality of the image.Sharp,high contrast. Small size;really very portable. The angle of the incident LED light is appropriate. Very easy to use.
The magnification is far from 45X. I have a high quality microscope and it's easy to see the difference. I think the real magnification is between 15 and 20, which actually is quite useful and I personally don't have a problem with this. The LED-s don't work very reliably.They kind of blink due to bad contact.Easy to fix though.
I think the light is too bright for me.The current consumption is about 40mA, which would drain the batteries quite fast (less than half an hour).That's why I redused the current to 7mA by putting an aditional SMD resistor of 180 Ohms.The light is quite sufficient and I am not that concerned about the battery life anymore.
I'd recommend it for DIY people.To me it's quite useful.
