Strengths: 
  • Clear crisp image
  • The Ruby handheld magnifier has been, in my experience, easy for students to utlilize independently. 
Limitations: 
  • The battery for the Ruby models that I am currently using is not holding charge well.  This may just be due to the age of the particular units.
