Great magnification.
Great focus at close distances.
It makes it easy to see small objects.
Great light. You don't need any extra light to use it.
It comes in a nice closable protecting bag.
The UV light is a little weak, if you use it in bright places, it doesn’t have any effect.
If you try to hold it more than about 3 centimetres away from any object to increase the magnification, it becomes blurry, and out of focus.
It’s a little small to read long lines of text.
On the DX web page, the overview says "2*CR2026" but the title says "2*CR2016". 2*CR2016 is the correct one.
This is worth every penny (or in this case dollar). I have used it on several occasions, and it always gets the job done. I will probably by this for my mom, who loved it, and it is also great if you need a gift for someone.
Remember to turn off the light when you're done using it, to save the batteries.
It works great for small electronically components that have very tiny writing on them. I can read any number with no problems, even on the smallest of the components.
