Folding phone screen magnifier

Folding phone screen magnifier

Ref: fres-phone-B

{Summary}

A really neat vinyl case the size of a super-slim pocket book, yet it unfolds into a stand magnifier for resting a phone.

Why?

There are two reasons.

Firstly, photos on phones are very nice, but awfully small. The phone screen magnifier makes the photos look like printed enlargements (approx. 3X magnification).

Secondly, if you watch videos (e.g. YouTube) on a phone, holding it up level with your eye gives you sore arms. Similarly, try watching the same video while lying in bed, you prop the phone up, it keeps falling over.

The photographs show the phone with and without the magnifier, both photos were taken at the same distance, the magnifier really does make the picture look that much larger.

{Technical}
Magnification: about 3X

Size folded: 7½ X 4¾ X 1/8 inch (190 X 120 X 4mm)

Size open: 7½ X 4¾, X 4¾ tall (190 X 120 X 120mm)

Material: vinyl cover with plastic Fresnel (flat) lens.

Colour: black (to minimum of reflections).

Presentation: printed box.

The text on the box has also reads: "mirror material, organic glass" and "material function: anti-radiation". These descriptions are not necessarily accurate.

Weight: 150g

{Applications}
Designed for phones but it has many other uses.

For picture postcards and photographs (makes a standard 6X4 item look like 10X6)

For small tablets (up to the size of an iPod mini). And speaking of tablets, for packets of tablets (e.g. to read the dosage).

Other ideas: make your watch into a bedside clock; read the small print on instruction leaflets when you need both hands free to...follow the instructions.

With all of the above, the phone screen viewer tilts at just the right angle to view it without bending over. However, there's another way of using it. Turn it with the base flat on a table, the magnifier parallel with the table, now you can work under it, e.g. for crafts, repairs, calligraphy, or just for writing (if your sight is poor).

Magnifiers that clip to glasses - clip to spectacles, double, binocular stereo

Magnifiers that clip to glasses - clip to spectacles, double, binocular stereo

Ref: CLIPON/D

{Details}
Double magnifier, large lens fits over even large spectacles, can be folded up out of the way when not in use, carrying pouch included. One strength (the strongest): 4.00D (= 2X mag). Very simple design, very average quality lens, but very good price (leather pouch included).

This is too large to fit very small spectacles, I would recommend an ingenious single clip-on magnifier instead, click here.

Russian 5X50 hand magnifier

Russian 5X50 hand magnifier

Ref: 5X50

{Details}
Quite powerful, at 5X magnification (50mm diameter). Thick black plastic holding a chunky lump of glass, so you get quite high magnification and a nice chunky bit of glass for your money.

As regards the quality, please be aware that what you get for £5.00 isn't the same as what you get (for instance) with a Eschenbach hand reader at £48.00, click on the picture above, then see what text looks like through the Eschenbach (click here). to see the difference. HOWEVER, you really are getting a 5X magnification decent-size lens which, for £5.00, could be considered good value.

{Technical}
Magnification / lens size in mm: 3X40

Field of view: vertically, 7 or 8 lines; horizontally 3 or 4 words

Lens material: glass

Origin / brand: we import these from India or China as available.

Casing: folds into a soft case (soft-leather-effect plastic)

Presentation: cardboard box

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, these are the best 'general purpose' magnifiers; they are larger than the tiny super-powerful loupes used for hallmarks, gemstones, coins and stamps; they are pocket-size unlike most readers for books and newspapers; they are 'general purpose'; they are for reading text (be it the small print on a form or a tin in a supermarket), marks (e.g. on furniture or porcelain), larger insects and plants (spiders and leaves)...anything.

Specifically, this one has a nice soft case and is comfortable to carry in a pocket.

Magnification / lens size in mm: 10X25

Maximum working distance: n/a (it's closed in)

Origin / brand: we import these from China

Construction / presentation: plastic lens, plastic casing, supplied in a printed cardboard box.

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, these are high power (like loupes) but on stands so that you don't have to hold them. Since they stand (i.e. stand flat) they are intended for use on flat objects such as stamps and coins, prints, paintings and photographs, and fabrics. Some are on 'open' stands, so you could use very fine (VERY fine) tools underneath; most have 'closed' stands - see each photograph.

Specifically, large clear bottom half, to let in lots of light, nice to handle.

{Alternatives}
Not quite what you were looking for? You want a magnifier that rests on the page for reading? We have a few of these, especially designed for the partially-sighted, see our rest-on-page magnifiers

Too small? Need a stand magnifier that is larger, with space to work under? See our large stand magnifiers (bench magnifiers).

Not good enough?! Need a microscope? click here.

Almost right, but you DO need something considerably more powerful (a large single lens is ALWAYS low-power), AND it must still give stereo vision. Try the type of head-worn magnifier surgeons use. click here. These are good for watch repairing or for work on micro-circuits.

{Applications / quality}

A linen tester (also known as a linen prover) is a folding magnifier, traditionally used for measuring the threads-per-inch on linen, which is why it has a scale marked around the base. Today, they are mostly used for viewing stamps, coins, prints and photos - anything flat. They come in all sizes from 15mm to 90mm, one even has a light.

Specifically, this one is very small, its 20mm diameter lens is about the size you would find on a jewellers loupe, obvioulsly it's not the best optical quality (for £1.50 but it's quite useable.

{{Applications / quality}

Generally, a linen tester (also known as a linen prover) is a folding magnifier, traditionally used for measuring the threads-per-inch on linen, which is why it has a scale marked around the base. Today, they are mostly used for viewing stamps, coins, prints and photos - anything flat. They come in all sizes from 15mm to 90mm, one even has a light.

Specifically, this one has the smallest lens, 12mm diameter, but the combination of a light plus being able to focus the lens makes this the nicest of the small linen testers, very sharp image.
