Very good product – 15X Close-up Map Magnifier Reviews

Pros:
This is basically a jeweler's loupe. It's used to magnify small spots or allow you to be able to concentrate on small spots when sodering, wiring or building tiny things.
You can use this magnifier by squinting your eye a bit so that your eyelids will grasp onto the loupe so you can use both hands if needed.
It has a good magnification level.
Cons:
A lot smaller than I expected. My father's legally blind and uses a loupe in order to read but this is way too small.
Other:
Bottomline:
This won't work as a reading aid. You need a loupe at least 2.5 times larger than this one if you need a magnifier to read with.
If you're working with small things, jewelry, money, close-up inspections, sodering, etc then this is a good product.
