This magnifier is small and lightweight enough to fit into your bag or pocket, whilst providing the magnification you need to read information at home or out and about. With the handle closed, this video magnifier can be placed directly onto a document and set to magnify at five times, seven and a half times or 10 times (5x, 7.5x, 10x). With the handle extended the device offers two to 14 times magnification (2x to 14x).
The 4.3-inch, full colour screen makes this magnifier outstanding for reading bills, letters and checking receipts. The screen image stays crisp and clear, even when rapidly moving the Ruby across lines of text. You can change the text and background colour combinations to find your most comfortable reading contrast; full colour, black on white, white on black, yellow in blue and yellow on black.
The Ruby is easy to use, with large colourful easy-to-see and feel buttons against the black face of the device. The handle and outer casing are ruby red. The image capture feature means you can freeze an image at arms-length and then bring the screen closer to read; perfect for checking price tags, noticeboards or timetables. You can save up to 15 images for future reference.
Supplied with four rechargeable AAA NiMH batteries which take approximately two hours to fully charge. You can also use standard AAA disposable alkaline batteries to operate the unit, but you must replace the rechargeable batteries before using the mains charger. On a full charge you can continually use the Ruby for about two hours; when the batteries are low the battery indictor LED flashes red. The batteries are contained within the handle giving the Ruby a light and balanced feel.
This is a drop-ship item, the price includes £7.50 delivery charge.
