Illuminated magnifiers are commonplace, but this one stands out. The 3X acrylic lens is mounted on an articulated stand that extends up to 8" high, with a stable base to permit hands-free use. The unit folds up for protected storage, forming a tidy package about the size of a digital camera. You can activate either of the two LED arrays separately to select lighting for different purposes. The four-LED array illuminates directly beneath the lens to spotlight the object being magnified, while the five-LED array casts light more widely, allowing use as a task lamp. Requires three AAA batteries (you supply). A great stocking stuffer.
