This Light-Up Magnifier has an easy-grip handle and a 75mm diameter lens. This makes it very handy in low light conditions or where some extra light would help to make things more legible. Sturdy and simple to operate, it is an excellent travelling companion and an equally useful aid around the home. Moreover, it does not need to be held to magnify an image; it simply lies on the surface of the paper or screen and yields a clear, bright view. The battery powered light makes for easier reading in dim light and it has a high magnification central area for close work. Requires 2 x size AA batteries (not included).
