cheap, but needs to be very close to object – Glasses Type 20X Magnifier with White LED Light (2 x CR1620) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It is very cheap, and seems well constructed. The LEDs are functional.
Cons:
You have to get VERY close to the object to focus. When I say very, I mean it, it almost touches the lens. Because of this, you cannot focus the same object with both eyes, so buying the monocle version would be almost the same.
Other:
I bought it to work with miniatures, but as it envolves a dremel, I don't want to risk losing my eye, so to me, it's worth only to play around and look at objects closely. I you have other purposes, however, it may be worth a try.
Bottomline:
Good for the price, but be aware of the cons.
