First, the Explora is convenient and easy to slip in your pocket or purse, measuring just over 3" high and 1" thick. The soft touch, non-slip rubber coating feels luxurious and significantly reduces the chances of it being dropped. Additionally, the included wrist strap can be mounted to the left or the right, depending on the users preference.
When out and about, or even at home, the Explora-Plus makes for quick and easy magnification. A single button turns the unit on, controls the LED lights and turns the unit off. Various modes, such as full colour, MD with pure white text on a pure black background, enhanced positive with pure black text on a pure white background and greyscale where the colour is removed for increased clarity are all controlled by a single button. Using the 'freeze' button, an image can easily be taken and held on the screen while you move the Explora-Plus closer to your eyes for a more detailed look. This can be especially useful for getting a really close look at anything above or below your normal eye level or at arm's length. A smooth, linear, digital zoom allows you to go from 4.5 times magnification up to 9 times magnification, stopping anywhere along the way.
At home, the Explora-Plus can be connected to a regular television or any monitor with video input for increased magnification. The included power supply provides an alternative to batteries and a tripod mount allows the magnifier to be used for a multitude of tasks such as personal care, threading a needle, model making or any other activity where the user wishes to have both hands free.
If you are looking for a portable, truly pocket size, electronic magnifier that is fully loaded and yet still remains simple, affordable and has outstanding image quality, look no further than the Explora-Plus.
