Pocket Microscope, 100X

Item# MI-PK100X

An inexpensive, easy-to-use pocket microscope that can be carried along anywhere! The 100X magnification provides amazing detail of insects, plants, and other objects, with zoom magnification from 60-100x. You can even see plant cells and observe the movement of large protists in pond water. This is a good alternative to buying an expensive microscope in the early grades. The removable base can hold the microscope for viewing slides, or you can look at objects like fabric, a newspaper page, salt crystals, and more. Requires two AA batteries, not included, for built-in light.

This product is okay Review by
Being inexpensive I wasn't expecting a great product and this one is about what I expected. The first time we used it the lightbulb blew. In the few minutes we used it before the bulb blew it seemed to work well enough. Overall I'd say the product is somewhat delicate and needs to be treated with care although this is true of lots of science equipment.
useful Review by
This item is simply okay. I am not sure what I expected for the size and for the price. It works. It does not feel very durable.
Great Review by
Was very pleased with this mini-microscope, it did exactly what was expected. I blew a bulb in the first week. The battery cover door is no longer sitting correctly, but a small peice of tape and it works great. Used almost dailey.
Looks good, and looks well! Review by
We got this as a stocking stuffer for my daughter. I viewed a few things through it before tucking it away for the holiday, and it appears to be a really great microscope for the price. Better than I expected, honestly.
Easy to use and very handy! Review by
We have four microscopes in our house - from a high end to the kind that hooks up to the computer that the young kids can "play" with and take photos with. At $15 this one blows the others away as our favorite. We have used it in the field, on nature walks, taken it across country, and we regularly use it in the lab. It is sturdy and effective. We recently did a protist study and found this one not only to be the easiest to use, but the most effective in spotting the specimens. Even my toddler was using this one to watch them! One trick we found was using the colored tabs from 3-ring dividers to help filter the bright light. We have one student with regular migraines and it helped immensely.
