The MenasLUX is a compact, illuminated stand magnfier that provides 3X magnification in a contemporary design and is made in Germany with high-quality optics. This stand magnifier has a wide 63 mm (2.5 in) diameter lens that provides a generous field of view. The MenasLUX is a big step forward in magnification technology, with its unique meniscus/aspheric lens design that combines the benefits of a bright field magnifier (comfortable eye-to-lens viewing distance) with and a handheld magnifier (allows for higher magnification) in one device. This remarkable new magnifier is one of the lightest on the market, at 4.5 ounces, and low-profile at 1.7" high. Requires one AA battery, included, to power the extra-bright SMD LED. The MenasLUX comes with a drawstring microfiber pouch that doubles as a cleaning cloth.
