Good for the price – Glasses Type 20X Magnifier with White LED Light (2 x CR1620) Reviews

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

Pros:
The quality is about what you might expect for the price. I was surprised at the detail you can see when looking through them. The leds are bright and very useful and the angles are adjustable. The position of the lenses can be adjusted to suit the width between your eyes and you can flip them up allowing you to use just one lens if you prefer
Cons:
You can't adjust the focus so you have to get very close to what you are looking at. It would be dangerous to use them while soldering. The frames do not fit well around my ears and the glasses slide forward when I lean forward to examine things.
Other:
If you are thinking of buying these for soldering, bear in mind they are only good for looking at your work before or after soldering. I would not attempt to use them while soldering because there is a high risk of burning yourself.
Bottomline:
For $6.40 I can't complain. Even though I can't use them for soldering - which is what I wanted them for - I am sure they will come in handy for other things
