LED light Really
Smallest, lightweight, you hardly notice it's there. Add-on elastic for extra comfort (I find I don't need this, for me it fits fine and doesn't slide down).
Lens can swung up out of the way, e.g. if you can't be bothered to take it off each time you have a visitor or drink a cup of coffee.
Adjustable LED light. The entire light can be removed. e.g. if you don't actually need a light, this then makes the magnifier even lighter.
Box of five lenses, up to 3.5X magnification.
Can be worn over the top of spectacles or without spectacles.

Suitable for reading, crafts, or for simple engineering work.
I now use one of these for computer work instead of my half-glasses for reading, I find this magnifier (using the lowest-power lens) more comfortable because I can adjust the position of the lens to point at the paperwork, and have normal vision (outside the lens)
The lower magnifications give a long working distance, good for working with larger objects, e.g. fly-tying, wiring in fuse cupboards or switch rooms (its high power light helps). The higher magnifications are suitable for smaller objects such as watch movements or PCBs.
These are the magnifications and working distances, according to the chart on the box:
1.0X, working distance (for a normal-sighted person) 500mm
1.5X, working distance (for a normal-sighted person) 330mm
2.0, working distance (for a normal-sighted person) 250mm
2.5X, working distance (for a normal-sighted person) 200mm
3.5X, working distance (for a normal-sighted person) 140mm
