KKMoon Desk LED Illuminating Magnifier

Here's one we got in recently to help elders around the place with deteriorating eyesight. And it works a treat.

Does pretty much what it says on the tin, really. It's got a goose-neck for limitless positioning, a good clamp which firmly clutches the desk, a 107mm main glass with 2.5x magnification and embedded into that, a circular 24mm section with 5x magnification for serious close-ups.

A thousand and one uses of course, not just for those with failing eyesight but also hobbyists and people who work with small screws or repairing glasses, fitting tiny batteries and the like. The 'head' of the unit is plastic and the rest metal. Probably won't last forever but it feels sturdy enough for a good while.

This model also has an LED lamp built-in which takes 2 x AAA batteries. Batteries seem to last well - on one occasion a user here left it on for 6 hours accidentally and it still works fine! This lighting genuinely helps to see things in all-but broad daylight.

It's not a big plate-style book-reader, as putting a book behind it does mean moving it around quite a lot but for general desk use, it's a peach! A tenner at AmazonUK and you can't go wrong.
