Explore 8 HD Portable Electronic Magnifier


The Explorē 8 is a touchscreen high-definition handheld magnifier for active people who prefer a large screen but still want maximum portability. It is smaller, lighter and more affordable than most 7-inch magnifiers on the market while providing a screen which is more than 30% larger.

Two 21 megapixel cameras ensure that the Explorē 8 has fantastic image quality. One camera is dedicated for viewing less than 15 cm away, for things like documents, books and newspapers. The second camera is dedicated for distance viewing, to see things like street and store signs.

The device boasts a large screen in a small package. Designed with the latest technology, Explorē 8 has innovative features and an easy to use touchscreen for unmatched mobility, comfort and convenience wherever you go. Use the buttons on the front for a tactile interface, or touch screen controls for those comfortable with touch screens. With the touch screen you can pan around pictures and magnify with ease!

The USB C charger makes it easy and fast to charge. The charger fits in any way, making it easy to connect! With the included HDMI cable you can even connect Explorē 8 to your television and read on the TV screen.
