Helpful For Many More Things Than We Tought

We recently got a product that I thought Rick would enjoy testing out for me. So here is his review for you. Oh and pay close attention to the end of the review. it's worth the read!

From Rick:
This HMFiva LED Handheld Magnifying Glass Set has three interchangeable lenses and a built-in light.

I'll first cover the “down side” to it. The packaging and instructions omit important information, such as contact information in case of defects. There isn't even a manufacturer's name given, although I suspect this is made in China, since the instructions are printed in Chinese and awkward English. Example: after inserting the batteries, one is to “Confirm the switch push plate and the switch remains before or after the agreement, close the battery cover.” Fortunately, the diagrams and a quick look at the device are adequate for determining all you'll need to know.

The three lenses are 2.5X, 5X, and 16X. The first was the most useful for me to enlarge text. The stronger two lenses make small details [example: the tiny screws in eyeglasses] much more easily seen. The 16X lens actually seemed too powerful for any job I might face. All three lenses seemed free of distortion.

The lenses are quickly and easily interchanged, and stay firmly in place. A soft bag is provided for lens storage, along with a small cleaning cloth.

The LED light, built into the handle, is very bright and illuminates the object you are looking at without stray light shining directly into the eye. It can be switched on and off with the same hand that is holding the magnifying unit. With no lens attached, this can even be used as a flashlight! The light requires three AAA batteries, not included, and easily installed.

Practical, compact, easy to use and store, I would recommend this product – as long as you are willing to follow the manufacturer's suggestion, “Please do not use gasoline, alcohol, banana water or chemical contact magnifier.”
