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

Pros:
Compact. The case is actually quite tough and you should be able to carry it in your pocket without damaging it.
Supplied with batteries.
You need to fully extend the lens assembly to turn the light on.
Cons:
The UV / LED switch is very small and stiff to use. The 60x magnifcation lens is a bit too small to be really useful, however it is still useable. The UV / LED will only light if the lens is fully extracted, however this assembly is quite flimsy and you need to hold it in place with your thumb.
Other:
The 60x magnifcation lens would be better if it was larger.
Bottomline:
As a small cheap maginfier with light, this unit works very well. For the odd looking at coins or stamps etc this is ideal.
