I am very happy with these high powered magnifying glasses. They fit comfortably on bridge of my nose. They are made of a lightweight plastic so dont be put off by that. The lights work well & I've found one eye at a time works better for me. You easily can lift one out of the way. Dont be discouraged & take your time to adjust to how they work. Be patient. I found them difficult at first because I was unsure of how to use them. You will be rewarded if you take time, patience & adjust them for your needs. I really needed a magnifying lense that works & very satisfied with the money I spent for them!
I like this magnifier setup a lot, I like the headband option, glasses falling off/out of place when working on tiny things is a serious pain. I also like all the magnification factor choices, it gives you exactly the right mag for any purpose. These make working on electronics, drones, watches, etc., easier and faster -- seeing your work clearly is make or break! I also use it to pull stickers out of my dogs, and someday myself as well, I'm sure.
It isn't quite perfect though, for one thing (in a twist of irony) the mag factor markings on the lenses are difficult to see, I need the 2.5x lens to read them. If they were printed in white it would be much easier to read. Relatedly, baubling the box of lenses is a nightmare, it takes a while to get them all back in the right holes (which is essential.)
And also related, the top on the box of lenses hakes two hands and a fingernail to open, you have to split it from the bottom. I'm afraid to leave it open while using a lens, as even bumping it can jostle some of the lenses out. I'm not sure what would be better, I guess I'l like to see a hinged top with a clasp, and/or rubberized holes to hold them tighter.
Battery life is acceptable but not stellar, it uses 3 LR1130 coin cells for each side, if you buy one of these I suggest you order some batteries at the same time.
It comes with two lenses of each mag factor, which is rather useless, you can use both 2.5x lenses together, but not any of the others. I'd be happy with one of each. And one last wish list item, a blackout lense, to block one eye would be most convenient.
But all my nitpicks aside, it's still the best thing going, I'd surely buy it again.
Magnifying is acceptable but can only use one eye at a time. For price its good for repairs on watches, jewelry and crafts. Side lights help visibility.
East to use and flexible. Lenses change easily and I didn't have a problem with focal length. Used for watch repair and examination. 4X lens seems to be best for purpose, focal length is ~2", which is fine for watch work. Good clear view and design. Materials are what you'd expect for a $40 product with this much equipment, but can't ding it for that. You get more than what you pay for and it serves its purpose very well. Quite satisfied with it.
You can use two different lenses so that you can have different magnifications based on which eye piece you pull down. You only use one at a time. The eye pieces are not aligned so there is no way to get stereo.
