2 in 1 hands free magnifier

  • What does it do?:

    It magnifies 2x and 6x with close up lens. It works hands free.

  • What’s the problem?:

    Sometimes you need two hands AND magnification.

  • What our testers liked:

    Having both hands free does help for some tasks, the light can also improve visibility.

  • What our testers disliked:

    The product does not feel very robust, it is hard to adjust to get it to stand on its own and it is not obvious how to open the leg, it feels as though you are going to break it.  If you have a large bust it can be difficult to get it to sit at a useful angle.

  • What is interesting:
  • The hands free aspect is interesting, what other wearable products might be helpful? How else could magnifiers be 'worn'?
  • What our testers said:

    "Good for fiddly jobs where you need both hands and magnification to see what you are doing!"

  • Manufacturer:

    HAND

  • Approximate cost: £8
