What are our customers saying?
To those who are considering a purchase (and to those individuals who left negative reviews), it’s important to realize that this is not a magnifying glass. For viewing at this magnification, it is necessary to have a steady surface and the proper magnification settings. For those who are unfamiliar with using a regular microscope, there will be a learning curve. The directions which are included are good, just take the time to read them and learn how to use it.
Having said all that, this is a really excellent little pocket piece. Magnification is good, image is clear at all settings, the built in light is effective, and the quality is remarkably good. The quality for price is remarkable. For those who are familiar with regular microscope use and for those who learn to use it properly, this is a solid excellent.
The zoom function, focus control, and light all work very well. However, if this is your 1st microscope of this kind, plan on a slight learning curve. This isn’t the product’s fault, just the nature of such a device. Using it on a flat surface is super easy but not always possible. Holding it steady against a movable object like a flower petal or leaf is a little tricky and took me a week or so of practice before getting good enough at it. Once you get used to it, this truly is an indispensable tool when needing to see things the eye can’t see.
Both my more experienced friend and i cannot believe $15 buys a microscope this effective. He immediately requested i send him a link to the product.
I bought this at the advise of a website i was on for looking at trichomes to see when it’s time to harvest. It’s really a good little microscope but kind of hard to use unless you have a really steady hand. With this kind of magnification a little movement of your hand is a huge movement at the lens. That said you really can see the trichomes in unbelievable detail. You’ve never seen them before until you see them through this. My suggestion would be to get this jeweler’s loop set (https://www.amazon.com/dp/b091635t2k?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details) that amazon sells, which work very well for looking at trichomes and use this for a really closeup look. It would also be really great for showing your kids what every day things look through a microscope. They sure didn’t have anything like this when i was a kid!
It’s a mighty mite. How about the little brother to this a few years ago and my wife made fun of it until she had a piece of glass in her foot and i was able to use it to remove the glass. I saw this one a few months ago and after an incident with a tick that had left its pincer in my arm i decided to buy the bigger version this one is quite a bit easier to use the light is very bright and the magnification is good. The optical clarity is remarkably well suited for this price range. It does a very good job for the cost of the product. Would highly recommend this to anybody who likes to go out and look at things under a microscope. I believe it would be very helpful for small children as well to introduced them to the world around us.
Gave this to my 4 year old grandson and he loves it. He’s always looking for things to look at and i feel good to know he can use it very easily and had no problem understanding how it works
Just snip a small piece of a very frosty leave and this thing shows in great detail every crystal mushroom
less is more with this guy i tried a whole bud and it was a mess
My kid wanted a microscope to play with, and i decided to give this one a try. It is great. We can take it with us on walks, and when we don’t need it, it goes in a drawer. Definitely worth it.
I bought this microscope to use with my toddler as a learning experience and she absolutely loves it. It’s super easy to use, but unfortunately certain “taller” things can’t be observed because the light comes from the side instead of underneath. For the price, it’s absolutely worth it.
Spectacular little magnifier, just powerful enough to accurately check monarchs for oe. Very well worth the price!
A fun little gadget to expand your close-up view. You can focus it clearly and the magnification is excellent.
Bought this for my grandsons… It takes batteries … Had to go buy those, didn’t have a screw driver to open the battery door… It’s a tiny screw. After many attempts to get it open with what i have, we put it up and haven’t ever used it. If you buy this be sure you have a small screwdriver.
This is worth the money that you pay for it. I love it and keep it in the car at all times, but it is inexpensive. Still recommend, depending on what your use for it is.
I bought this thinking it would be perfect for inspecting coins. There is not enough room in the looking glass to view the hole coin. You will struggle trying i promise. Besides that, great little microscope!
Works well stable on a table. One has to have steady hands if your trying to hold it while using
I’m very satisfied with this little microscope. You can see in vivid detail anything tiny you want to observe. I used it to see mites. There is a learning curve and it takes time to figure out how to find the tiny object you want to see and hold the microscope sturdy once you find it. But really after about 15 minutes or so you well have it figured out pretty good. If you have shacky hands get a different microscope.
The object you want to observe has to be on a table then place the microscope on the table over the object.
There is no way you can just hold the microscope in your hand and see for example a mite on a leaf or a vain in the leaf on a limb without putting it on a solid surface.
Not as quick & easy to use as i was expecting it to be. But once you get everything all lined up & in order, it’s a very clear view. It’ll take some practice for me to get quicker. Great gadget for the price.
I purchased this to identify counterfeit flesh and blood cards. If you are looking for a product for the same purpose, this is the one you want. Do not buy the jarlink loupes, this is it!
What you should know:
takes a single aa battery which was not included. Picture quality is perfect for the use i have purchased it for. Displays image upside down so i found it easier to turn the card upside down.
Could it be better?
It could have included a battery and for the purpose i purchased it for i would have also preferred a lower range magnification; in my opinion 60x magnification is already strong enough so going from 0x to 60x would, i believe, make it a bit easier to find the identifiers i am looking for.
Fun and inexpensive way to look closely at common objects… I recommend you take a look at some cigarette tobacco and see how disgusting and chemical-laden it is, and maybe some insects. Cool toy.
Pretty nifty scope, but younger kids get frustrated trying to focus because it needs to sit directly on the item being magnified. Plus no plug included in this one.
