Zoom 20x ??? – Eyewear Style Single 20X Magnifier with LED Light (2*CR1620) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This thing is lightweight and sits well on the nose.
Cons:
1. Magnifier only 10x - not 20x
2. The focus is so close to the lens (about 2cm)
Other:
Quite useful to inspect smd work and small mechanics.
The working distance is much to close, if you inspect a pcb or anything else you easily hit your nose. Also the magnification is to high for a frame mounted loupe. The white 5mm-LED is directly connected to the battery without any driving circuit - only a matter of time until the LED fails. The light output will also decrease during the operating life of the battery.
Bottomline:
Very good, except the short focusing
distance.
