My grandmother always had a magnifying glass sitting in a drawer in her dining room. Growing up, I would consistently grab it and play games - intently studying different surfaces, liquids and creatures that had more than four legs; or pretend I was a young female Sherlock Holmes. Ah, the joys of a magnifying glass.
Of course, the magnifying glass had a purpose for my
grandmother, so she would get after me if I did not put it back or was too rough with it. I never actually saw her using it, so I can not know what exactly she used it for.
Regardless, I wanted to have a magnifying glass in my home to give my children a chance to view things up close and personal (and me too - some things never change).
The Loupe Led Magnifying Glass with Light gives me what I was looking for, plus more. For one, I love that is comes with three interchangeable lenses - allowing for 2.5x magnification, 5x and 16x. It also comes with a cleaning cloth and brush, a credit card magnifier and a case.
The light is powered by two AAA batteries. I think the light itself could be brighter. To be honest, after initially trying the light out, I knew I was not going to utilize it too much. I probably will in a dark room, but other than that it is not going to help out much.
This is not a bad product and it brings back memories of my childhood.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
