Great for small components – 6-LED Illuminated 30X Magnifier with UV Money Detector (2*CR2016) Reviews

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
