Magnifiers Buying Guide

A magnifying glass is a very common sight in households and commercial stores. Their feature of magnifying any object makes the popular to read smaller content or images. Magnifying glasses have various uses from making it easier to read a book or examining valuable such as stamps and gemstones. Their lightweight design and powerful magnification help you to carry on day to day activities easily.

However, the market is full of various options of magnifiers and choosing the best one can be tricky. But with our informative guide, we have tried to highlight some of the benefits of magnifiers and how you can select the right one. At the end of this guide, you will know what to look for while buying magnifiers.

Benefits of Using Magnifiers

Offers High Readability

Magnifiers allow you to read the smallest letters in detail easily. Multiple lenses used in the magnifiers permit you to pick your particular magnification according to your requirements at that point. While some permit you to switch between focal points, others have a part focal split design that offers easy readability to users.

Lightning

The newer models of magnifiers come with a convenient built-in feature. This makes your reading sessions convenient. It also allows you to read in the dark.

Convenient

Some models of magnifiers come with attached stands for stability and convenience. The stand helps you to look through the lens without using your hands.

Affordable

Magnifiers are affordable equipment and quite popular among professionals and students. Most of them cost between $5 and $40 depending upon their built, size etc. A $5 magnifying glass is a basic plastic handheld reading glass. It is ideal if you use them rarely. But, for $20, you can get a mid-range magnifying glass with two lenses and a built-in light. If you spend $30 or more, you can find a magnifying glass with two or more lenses and as many as 10 built-in lights.

Factors to Consider While Buying Magnifiers

Focal Length          

Focal length describes the distance that a magnifying glass can focus on an object while still maintaining visual focus. This factor is important to understand its usage and purpose. If you need to utilize it for building models or exercises that require instruments, you need a more extended central length. Otherwise, a shorter focal length may suffice.

Field of View

Field of view refers to the size of the area you can see while looking through the lens of your magnifiers. This depends upon magnification power. Higher magnification glasses usually offer a smaller field of view. If you want to use your magnifying glass for reading purposes, you should consider buying one with a larger field of view. While other activities like model-building and small detail-based activities will require magnifiers with a smaller field of view.

Magnification power

Magnification power reflects how large the glass can make an image appear. It's normally noted by a number followed by the letter X. This depicts big an image appears through the magnifying glass as compared to the naked eye. The power of magnifiers usually ranges from 2 x magnifications to 10 x magnifications for the powerful models. Models with 10x magnification are ideal for detailed work.

Number of LEDs

LED lighting in magnifiers helps to focus in dimmer and dark areas easily. It can also be used to highlight the object while focusing. While some may offer 5 or 6 LEDs, there are a few models that offer 30 or 40 LEDs for excellent lighting along with high magnification. We advise you to buy the one that offers sufficient lightning and satisfies your requirements.

Power Source

The built-in lighting is in magnifiers are powered by batteries. So, make sure to check the power source as some of them uses AAA batteries while others use USB or both of them.

Accessories

Best magnifying glasses come with additional accessories that ensure safe and easy transportation. Look for accessories like protective cases and cleaning clothes before purchasing.

Conclusion

While there are several types of magnifiers available today, multiple features, and brands make it difficult to choose a suitable one. But, with the factors mentioned above along you should be able to buy the right magnifiers. Factors like market reviews, popularity, and the return policy should also be considered before purchasing this product.
