Clip this little lighted scope onto your smart phone and use the phone's zoom feature to show images (and take photos) up to 30X magnification. Our Optics Guru Paul says it has no business working this well for under ten bucks. Measures 2-5/8" x 1-1/4" and comes with (3) replaceable button-cell batteries for the light.
And more. This accessory kit for smart phones (works with iPhone, Samsung, HTC, iPad, tablets and many others) has a 2” long clip-on bracket with screw-in macro, wide-angle and fish-eye lenses. Paul loves his kit and he’s our optics expert. Use the macro for insects, coins and diamonds. Fish-eye and wide-angle for great visual effects. Includes a little pouch to carry it all in, and tiny lens caps.Note: Two lenses come threaded together to conserve space.
Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure. You will, of course, use it to point out chimney cracks to the tuck-pointer, a cracked limb to the tree-trimmer, and the crack in your profit picture during a slide presentation. You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip, and case. An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.
Couldn't tell it from the glass variety by just looking. This plastic mirror with rounded corners measures 3-15/16" x 5-15/16". Comes with protective film on both sides. We're thinking kids, camping, or just a nearly-unbreakable travel item. Pretty flexible, too, if you like fun-house mirror effects.
This extremely good quality folding jeweler's loupe is in polished
aluminum and folds into a protective cover. It measures 1-5/8" x 13/16"
and is teardrop-shaped when closed. Doublet lens, 18mm dia, 10X, lit by
(2) very bright white LEDs, powered by (3) button-cell batteries that
are included. It has a small loop for a chain, and comes in a plastic
case with a small tool for accessing the batteries.
There's optical science and high school physics, and then there's making pretty colors with this little 4-1/2" x about 1" acrylic prism. It makes the same rainbows that the beveled edges on the glass in the French doors to your grandmother's living room used to make on the floor in the afternoon while she was making supper. If you had a grandmother with French doors with beveled glass, who made you supper. If not, you'd better buy this prism or you won't have anything to remember after she's gone.
Nothing screams HANDY! like PopUp wipes, little 3/4" diameter tablets that turn into 9" x 10" towelettes when submersed in water. Equally handy for campers, Navy Seals, toddler parents or anybody who slobbers a lot. We offer (3) different materials that come individually wrapped or in handy tubes. You pick!
Flat plastic Fresnel lens. This flexible magnifier is 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and only about a millimeter thick. It is great when you need to scan a list or to look for something in a directory. You can see most of the page without moving the magnifier. Only about 1.5 power, but that can make a huge visual difference. The quality is not high, but neither is the price.
We don't like to brag, but it's tough not to in a case like this. This is a wonderful pen-shaped laser pointer, 5-1/4" long, flat black or silver with gold pocket clip and head. It throws a red point a loong way (we've thrown it two city blocks at night, and it would've gone farther, but buildings got in the way). And what are we so proud of? We've seen a very similar item-not identical, mind you, but essentially the same-in one of those glossy, toys-for-grown-men catalogs. Their price? $20! We're proud not to be profit-mongers, buy it here and you can take pride in your smart shopping habits. Batteries included.
