For a long time, magnifying glasses were the preferred method of amplifying the size of small objects for viewing. However, the inherent drawback to a magnifying glass is that it takes up one of your hands. This is unacceptable for most detailed work. Luckily, headband magnifiers now exist to free up your hands for the fine work of jewelers, watchmakers, and more, or even just for reading without tiring your arm out. Some of these units include multiple lenses with varying levels of magnification. Most also include built-in LEDs to illuminate your subject, making it possible to work in unfavorable lighting conditions.
One of the drawbacks to many of these devices is the constant need for replacing batteries. The YOCTOSUN LED head magnifier eliminates this issue by incorporating a USB rechargeable battery. This is a feature we loved on paper, but the battery completely died and quit functioning after just a few weeks of use. We liked the built-in LED with adjustable brightness settings, but once the battery died, this function was only usable with the magnifier plugged in.

Many of you who are reading this article are itinerant professionals. To do your job, you make daily use of your own car, public transportation, or perhaps a contracted car and driver. If you drive your own car, you probably have caches of maps in accessible places to help you plan your travel. In my car, the maps I use often are in the driver's side pocket, and the rarely used ones are nested in the glove compartment. If you are an aging baby boomer as I am, you may also keep a magnifier for reading maps. Mine is clamped on the driver's side visor, and occasionally when I drive over a bump in the road, I am startled by the magnifier dropping suddenly into my lap. 781b155fdc
