2.5X FreeHand Lighted Magnifier
Better than expected
Serves my purpose. I love the light and the way you can use it hands free.

Hands-Free Lighted Magnifier
A friend of mine had lost different bits to his "good" ratcheting screwdriver, and different sizes of his "good" screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. So, for Christmas, I purchased him the 15-in-1 Ratcheting Screwdriver Clear/Black, Kelvin.23 Multi-Tool Black, and the Micro PlusÂ® EX Hand Tool Stainless for him to keep in his kitchen drawer, so he's always got the tool he needs "handy", and the accessory pieces like the drill bits, are stored IN the tool; which makes keeping them organized simpler with fewer steps. He was ecstatic, and has already used them...and loves them!
I also purchased him the Hands-Free Lighted Magnifier
for fine work and art projects that he does. He loved that too! He suggested that the light could be a little brighter; but he's still VERY happy with it..and in his regular workspace he DOES have a brighter work light that should help him see better. He's been using it almost every day since he received it.
I would buy these again for a friend. I think they'd be great for college students, or anyone living in a small space, or who's starting out, and doesn't have a complete tool set.

If you try to use the hands-free function of this magnifier, the weight of the batteries in the handle cause the magnifier to collapse. I plan to return it.

Once you get in it, it's great!
The instructions for use and inserting batteries is INSIDE the handle of this magnifier. It took me a while to figure out how to get into it to get to the instructions. Once I did, it told me how to get into it. NOT a big help. Once in with batteries installed, this really is a handy tool. Being able to use both hands while working on a small item is a big help.
