Nice gadget to make you look nerdy – Mini LED 80X Microscope with Scale Markings Reviews

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
Other:
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.
