The Aven 26505-LED Mighty Vue magnifying lamp with 80 high-powered LED lights (40 on each side) has a large (7.5 x 6.2 inches [H x W]), clear, 3-diopter glass lens with 1.75X magnification, and a 32-inch, adjustable arm with a mounting clamp. This magnifier enhances the size and resolution of an object or image, and is commonly used for a variety of applications, such as jewelry making, watch making, needlework, artwork, electronic inspection, fly tying, book reading, print inspection, and stamp collecting.
This lighted magnifier features 80 high-powered LED lights (40 on each side) which provide 20,000 hours of high-powered (1,000 lux) illumination to reduce eyestrain, and to control brightness. A clear, 3-diopter glass lens with 1.75x magnification provides distortion-free viewing. The round, monocular lens is surrounded by a lightweight, plastic, protective perimeter. The magnifier has a raised switch on the top of the light to activate lighting. Concealed springs and tension adjustment knobs allow the adjustable arm to securely set in many positions. It comes with a table attachment clamp for mounting. The magnifier weighs 10 lb., and works with a 115V power source. Lightweight plastic housing protects the light. It has a one-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.
A dioptric number and a magnification number are not the same thing. Diopter strength represents a specific magnification power (X). For example, a 3-diopter provides 1.75X magnification. The higher the diopter, the more magnification a lens can provide. As magnification increases, distance to the object (focal length), and field of view (diameter, or narrowness of view) decrease. Magnifiers and prescription eyeglasses have a diopter value, such as 1.5 or 2. The dioptric strength of an accessory lens, such as prescription eyeglasses or an eye loupe, must be added to the dioptric strength of the magnifier to calculate total magnification.
Magnifiers are devices used to enlarge the visual appearance of an object or image. Magnifiers come in a variety of styles such as hand-held, headband, standing, clip-on, eye loupe, and those that hang in a necklace form, or fit in a trouser pocket. Magnifiers are commonly made of plastic or glass. They can have one or more lenses with varying magnification abilities, and can have a binocular configuration with a single lens, or two separate lenses. They are sometimes used with LED or fluorescent light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Magnifier ability is often expressed as magnification at a specific length. For example, 1.75X at 14” means that when a magnifier is held at 14” from a viewer’s eyes, the object will be magnified 1.75 times (X) its actual size. As magnification increases, viewing areas and focal length decrease. Magnifiers sometimes have a diopter number, expressed as + or - D, which is a measurement of strength (or power) of the lens. Some magnifiers are marked with a dioptric number on the lens. A high diopter number has a higher magnification than a low diopter number. Aspheric magnifiers, unlike spheric magnifiers, produce a sharp image to the edge of the lens for less distortion. Magnifiers are widely used in jewelry inspection and fabrication, watch-making, needlework, artwork, fly-tying, electrical inspection, reading, print inspection, and stamp-collecting.

found with this light is the arm which holds the light is kind of weak and
does not stay in place well. Overall the light does it`s job as long as you
do not have to move it a bunch. :)
The only shortcoming that I have found it that it is made specifically to mount on the back of the work bench and to be pulled forward, so if your best mounting spot is on the side (I have a riser on my bench that prohibits mounting on the back of the bench), this lamp is not your best option.
The lamp is well-balanced. It moves easily and remains securely wherever I place it. As I expected, the lens distorts somewhat at the edges, but that seldom interferes with my use of it. It fastened easily to my desk, and it is very secure.
The LEDs are bright without glare, and the switch is located perfectly. (It also works perfectly.) There is nothing that suggests cheapness or carelessness in the manufacture and shipping of this lamp. The price is quite reasonable for a magnifying lamp of this quality.

The light itself is nice, though not as written in the description, which I was aware of from reading the reviews prior to purchasing. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Amazon Customer
The lamp contains 36 LED lights, not the 80 lights advertised. The label on the box states the correct number of lights (36), and the same part number as in the Amazon ad. Read morePublished 3 months ago by San Diego Reviewer
