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.
Forget watchmaking, you could write the "A Tale of Two Cities" on a piece of tortellini with this triple magnifier visor. Magnifies from 1.8X to 4.8X. Has a permanent 2.2X lens, a flip-down lens, and a flip-down loupe. Separate white LEDs at each temple, powered by (2) "AAA"s each which aren't included. The whole thing is in a black plastic visor, 7-3/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep with a flexible plastic strap held by a hook-and-loop closure. Opens to 9" max dia and has coated acrylic lenses. Now then: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….
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.
This XL magnifier measures 3-3/8" dia with a 5" long handle, all rubber coated. Glass lens is 1.5X and surrounded by (12) bright white LEDs that run on (2) included "AA" batteries. Tap-on, tap-off switch. Good for everything from reading to looking at bugs and such.
A nice 3X loupe, 2-3/8" dia, that folds into its own 3-3/8" x 2-5/8" tear-drop-shaped plastic case, and it's only 5/8" thick, just right for sliding into your pocket. Pay no attention the "6X" markings on the package-if mistakes didn't happen, we wouldn't be in business.
A good size for keeping on the coffee table or desk, and with a felt-covered bottom so it won't scratch the furniture, this folding loupe measures 2-1/2" dia in a bright-brass-plated case that's 2-7/8" dia x 11/16" thick when closed. Magnifies to approx 4X. You're gonna love it!
Excellent quality 1-3/4" dia magnifier on a gold- or silver-colored, thin 36" chain with clasp. Package calls it 5X but our magnification guru says less than that at optimum focal length. Perfect for wearing to formal antique shows.
Didn't she make movies with Andy Warhol? Never mind -- this one is a very nice 10X illuminated UV jeweler's loupe in teardrop housing with a small loop for a chain.

Comes in a 2-1/2" x 1-1/4" x 1-3/4" plastic storage box.
Well, okay, glass, because rubber is hard to see through, but the handle and frame are covered in black rubber. Approx 2" square lens magnifies to 4X.
