Hand magnifiers have a handle and are hand held when in use. They are also known as reading magnifiers or magnifying glasses. Hand magnifiers have a convex lens mounted in a handle mount that allows an object to be magnified.
Hand magnifiers are very flexible and versatile. Depending on their size, they can also be easily transported, so that they can also be used on the go. Many details can be read well with it. Because you hold the magnifying glass at the desired distance over the object, you can read and view details in a comfortable position.
In addition to conventional hand magnifiers, there are also illuminated hand magnifiers, which are particularly helpful in poor lighting conditions.
Most hand magnifiers have a magnification of 2x (4 dioptres) to 10x (36 dioptres). A magnification of about 2x to 6x is called a magnifying glass. With a magnification beyond that, one speaks of a detail magnifier, which is mostly used in work and hobby.
