When working with small parts, sometimes you need magnification and some extra light. This is a monocle we use regularly in our production facility. It has a 10x lens with a working distance of about 1-1/2". This product is very similar to our illuminated monocle magnifier, but there is no attached aluminum-core headband.
This loop magnifier set itself apart in our eyes because of the little LED on the side. Trying to view SMD connections is hard enough - the LED on the side is a huge help for those close up inspections. The LED provides sufficient light at the working distance.
LED battery comes installed.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
