Battery lighted magnifying mirrors are well known in the compact handbag field of mirrors but did you know there are wall mounted, vanity, travel, and spot type battery operated magnifying mirrors.
With the advent of LED globes coming in, each of the mirrors mentioned use LED globes because of the low energy consumption. You know when your batteries are getting low the light gets dim. On average batteries last in these type of magnifying mirrors between 1 and 2 years depending on how much use they have. The portability of these types of magnifying mirrors with Halo Lighting is the main attraction.
I have listed below the models in our range along with a small pic and some details. Hope you enjoy.
The vanity LED lighted duel sided mirror the JKLED48 with 8x magnification is the newest model. Cordless in operation as it runs on 4 AAA batteries that will last. This means you can walk round the house because it's completely portable. With LED bulbs using 70% less energy than normal bulbs the batteries have an extended life.Size of the mirror is very good with a halo mirror diameter of 16.5 cm. Overall height is 31cm just right to sit on your vanity not adding to the clutter. It does come in a Satin nickel finish which looks like lightly polished stainless steel. Its finish does not work for everybody however the redeeming quality of Satin Nickel is it does not leave finger marks when using it.
Our LED Lighted 15x spot mirror JKLED15X will be perfect for the handbag. This 15X LED Lighted Spot Mirror features optical quality glass to ensure a clearer reflection of your true self. The 15X magnification is ideal for touch-ups, detail, and everyday make-up application. No matter how dim the environment the powerfully bright, surround lighted LED evenly illuminates any area of your face. And because of the energy-saving LED technology it's able to run on batteries for an extensive amount of time. This versatile and ergonomic design makes it perfect for compact on-the-go travel in your purse or carry-on, plus, it easily mounts to most smooth, flat surfaces via suction cups so you can view yourself and apply make-up completely hands-free. So keep in mind we have two different models the 15x and a 10x version JKLED10X both lighted and color styled.
The only handbag compact in our range is the LEDT01. It is just the right size to fit in your handbag and excellent for everyday touchups it is also your travel magnifying mirror at a pinch. Weighing in at just 280 grams and folds down completely flat and comes with a lighted fold out arrangement it is also the smallest of the range. It folds out quickly and easily into many positions, has two LED lighted mirrors one magnified mirror and one not magnified but both have a halo light you can turn on and off individually. Whilst most bathrooms in public buildings have reasonable light it's when you need to dash from the car into a meeting and you need to check you're looking your best this magnifying makeup mirror with lights is at its best.
When travelling lighted magnifying mirrors can be a lifesaver when you are away from home. Here at My Health and Beauty we are always on the lookout for a mirror that can be used in any circumstance. The LEDTO1 can be held in the hand or sat on a flat surface while you make those last minute touchups. The generous mirror size of 3 1/2 inches or 9cm makes it a whole lot easier than the traditional compacts. When set in the upright position for maximum usage this travel lighted magnifying mirror stands 11 ½ inches or 29cm high. The duel mirror arrangement have a 10x and a 1x magnification allowing close up work or a quick glance overall.
Need a bigger mirror when you're travelling? Or do you just want to leave a makeup mirror in the car or office drawer, the ULT111 is fantastic. I love its size with two fold out makeup mirrors, the bottom unit magnified and lighted. This is a really steady unit as I said the size does it for me at 14cm which is just perfect. It does fold down flat however the best part is because the base is nice and sturdy it will extend out 40cm so that makes it an all-round useful makeup mirror with light available here in Australia.
For a fast portable solution I can't go past the LEDPSC110 lighted power suction makeup mirror when travelling for the main reason it's so light and so handy to just suction on to a mirror or glass or tiles when you're in some strange hotel with poor lighting and only one mirror. I really hate waiting for my husband who is also in the bathroom and I can't use a mirror. It's just so easy to pull out this lighted makeup magnifying mirror turn the dial and it suctions onto the wall and I have a mirror I can see with and put my makeup on without my glasses. I use it with the light on when it's too dark but my favorite is to suction it to the window or glass door and use it with natural light
The final mirror we'll cover today is our Cordless LED Halo lighted wall mount mirror powered by batteries. This solves a problem for those having difficulty putting a magnifying mirror in a bathroom that has a power point in the wrong place. The entry price point for a LED halo lighted mirror is significantly lower than those made for Australian 240volt power. The question on many minds is how long do the batteries last? Well because this mirror uses energy saving LED lighting which consumes 70% less than normal globe mirrors a set of 4 AA batteries will last 2 years. One of the key features of this mirror is the auto off timer which adds convenience and saves your battery power if you walk out and leave the light on. The timer will time out after 5 minutes. This magnifying mirror is double sided with 5x on one side being great for touchups, detail and makeup application while on the side 1x being for perfect for all round hairstyling, cosmetics and anything else in between. If your bathroom is a dim environment the LEDs are powerful enough to illuminate your face and not have a bright light shine in your eyes.
This mirror comes with optical quality glass to ensure a clearer reflection of your face. The mounting will allow the mirror to rotate 360 degrees into any position that work for the user. This mirror has smaller dimensions that will work for many who do not require the bigger lighted models. The actual mirror size is 5.5 inches or 14cm across with the overall measurement including the body of the mirror being 7 inches 17.5 cm wide. The mirror pivots on two arms that will extend out 9.5inches or 24cm from the wall and once finished with will fold neatly flat back against the wall. The mirror comes in satin nickel finish which is like polished stainless steel to look at. The best part about satin nickel finish is it does not show the finger marks like the chrome or gold models do. This is the most requested finish currently in vogue in the US.
This Cordless mirror is the very latest design that is just right for those who take care of how they look when stepping out stylish, practical, high quality the MWLED45.
Well there you have it a quick rundown on our battery operated magnifying mirrors.
Hope you enjoyed that . Its your turn to show the world your beautiful smile.

Hi everyone today's post is touching base on some of the common questions we receive on our magnifying mirror range over the phone.
Actually whilst writing this a common comment by those who call us say it's fantastic to be able to pick up the phone and talk to somebody. They get the right information clarification on their query and some guidance if needed. Next time you're online looking for an item check to see if it's possible to actually talk to somebody, even better, if they are qualified you may save yourself a lot of angst if things go wrong.
A surprisingly common question received is can you put the wall mounted mirrors inside a shower cubicle? Funnily enough the customer often phrases the question a different way by asking if the mirror rusts. The answer obviously is No these mirrors should not be mounted in the shower.
They are fitted with real glass that can shatter if hit with hot water. If someone slips in the shower they may reach out for something to steady themselves with only the magnifying mirror within reach. It can pull the mirror off the wall, the glass will break and possibly hit you on the top of the leg or foot with serious cuts resulting. The mirror will rust if it gets wet every day as it's manufactured from steel with a chrome, nickel or gold finish. In a standard situation where the mirror is located in a normally ventilated bathroom then damage to the surface finish does not become an issue.
To make it easy we do have two models specifically made to mount inside the shower those being the Z850 and the ZW20SS.
For those not understanding the terminology direct wired and hard wired mean the same thing. Our HL8 series halo lighted magnifying mirror is our manufactured direct wired model. Direct wired means an electrician is required to wire the mirror into the power system of the house. These mirrors come complete with the on/off switch on the wall mounting base plate. The HL7 series mirrors sometimes referred to as plug and play when you just need to plug the short white curly cord into a nearby power point.
Please don't take any notice of the images you see online or in our brochures when trying to work out if it's a direct wired model or not the power lead in the image or on the brochure has been photo shopped out to make a cleaner image.
Some customers have called to say their mirror is not the same color as the brochure. When looking at the brochures customers sometimes choose a mirror based on the look or color of the image. When photographing mirrors, the reflective surfaces pick up the surrounding light and as a result the image looks a different color than it actually is. The best guide we can give you is to look at the code and the last letter gives the mirror finish. All codes are printed beside the image on the brochure. For example 7808N meaning it's a nickel finish conversely C for Chrome a G for Gold on other mirrors.
We often get suggestions on what magnification do you suggest. This is a tough one not knowing each person's circumstance. As a general rule if you wear glasses then you will need the higher magnifications from 7x upwards. The middle of the road magnification most common is the 5x so if you are not sure we would start here. Keep in mind a magnification mirror is like a new pair of glasses it will take a couple of use for your eyes to adjust.
With special regard to the large magnifications such as the 10X or the 15X the customer needs to know that to use the mirror, their face needs to be around 10cm or 4 inches back from the mirror surface. This is so the face does not appear distorted but rather gives a clean close up of the face. These mirrors will show every pore or if there are eyelash issues then they become much larger and easy to see.
Whilst we don't actually say so on the site Myhealthandbeauty magnifying mirrors have a range of spare parts available which cover everything from chrome and gold nuts, halo glass mirror for the 3x and 5x range, spare brackets even antifog glass cleaner to give your magnifying mirror that crystal clear finish.
Hopefully you have gained a new insight into magnifying mirror issues that will resolve anything you may have queried about.
Thats it for this week remember if its growth your looking for in your life look outside your comfort zone - My Mantra for the week.

Hi everyone Deb here with an update on one of our magnifying mirror models.
The ever popular 2028C scissor arm magnifying mirror has received an update
after 16 years.
The design of this scissor arm magnifying mirror has been around for many years and reminds us of something you would find in the grand old hotels of the 20's.
The standout design feature of this mirror is the scissor arm action that allows it to extend out from the wall. Jerdon have gone away from the 4x magnification and upgraded it to a 7x magnification. The new model designation is now 2027C. That's a very good mid-range magnification in a large diameter mirror.
This wall mounted model will extend out from the wall further than any other model on the market and with a reach of 60cm. The wall mount bracket has sufficient strength also to allow the mirror to move or swing from left to right 180 degrees. To add to the versatility the mirror itself is double sided and by simply turning the mirror itself you can have either 7x magnification to get close up on what you're doing or 1x to just check everything is in order before you leave.
There has been a trend of late where customers like to mount their magnifying mirror inside a cabinet. With that in mind and in terms of a space requirement the scissor arm magnifying mirror will fold back flat against the wall with the overall dimensions being 41cm high and 235cm. These are the highest and widest points.
We are not really sure of the reason however it's this model that gets continually mounted inside shower cubicles and so a word of warning do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is made from glass and a real chance of shattering should hot water hit the surface or you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct. Not only that the metal scissor arm will rust. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting.
Lots of enquiries coming through the phone of late regarding stock and delivery times. It worth repeating here at My Health and Beauty the team go out of their way to be as fast as possible from the time you order till you receive your order. We know other online sites are not as particular on this point.
We are reliant on Australia post and Star Track who are reasonable most of the time. Other times they can be shocking including this week alone it took 3 times for customer to get her mirror with the first one arriving smashed after something heavy was dropped on it. We replaced it only to find the second never arrived at all and is still lost and the third unit has been sent and arrived safely in one piece.
For those enquiring if we have stock, if you can see a magnifying mirror on our site it is in stock when we reach zero stock the item comes off the site meaning you can't see it until restock. Once again we know there are many sites who will sell anything, take the money and apologize later this is not best practice and only pushes customers away from online purchasing.
Finally let me say that you can feel much more comfortable when a phone number is given and you can actually talk to somebody. I know our liaison person Greg does a great job and answers all manner questions to help the customers. I guess that's a great check point for you the customer is if the site has no phone number to ring to talk to somebody or if it's an overseas site with no chance to ask a question then maybe you might be better off avoiding them.
Thats all from me today .
Remember to keep smiling and just do the best you can each day.

Hi everyone Deb here and as promised in my last post I would give you an update on three new LED lighted mirrors we have added to the range. They are currently on the water and should land in the warehouse at the start of December.
I won't revisit all the details of each model here but will provide link where you can see the mirrors and read all details that help you make a decision.
Having received requests to bring a 15x magnification model for those who have eyelid eyelash issues we think the new LED Lighted 15x spot mirror JKLED15X will be perfect for the job. This 15X LED Lighted Spot Mirror features optical quality glass to ensure a clearer reflection of your true self.
The 15X magnification is ideal for touch-ups, detail, and everyday make-up application.
No matter how dim the environment, the powerfully bright, surround lighted LED evenly illuminates any area of your face. And because of the energy-saving LED technology, it's able to run on batteries for an extensive amount of time.
The versatile and ergonomic design makes it perfect for compact on-the-go travel in your purse or carry-on. Plus, it easily mounts to most any smooth, flat surface via suction cups so you can view yourself and apply make-up completely hands-free. So keep in mind we have two different models the 15x and a 10x version JKLED10X both lighted and color styled.
Some of you may remember we have been selling super stylish JK48 8X vanity mirror for some time now. It's always been popular as a vanity model with its bigger magnification. This magnifying mirror has now become available also as an LED lighted duel sided mirror the JKLED48.
Cordless in operation as it runs on 4 AAA batteries that will last. Means you can walk round the house because it's completely portable. With LED bulbs using 70% less energy than normal bulbs the batteries have an extended life. Size of the mirror is very good with a halo mirror diameter of 16.5 cm. Overall height is 31cm just right to sit on your vanity not adding to the clutter.
It does come in a Satin nickel finish which looks like lightly polished stainless steel. Its finish does not work for everybody however the redeeming quality of Satin Nickel is does not leave finger marks when you move it into position as the chrome models do.
That's it short and sweet for this post. Christmas is coming quickly and as soon a stock arrives it will be crazy as the warehouse boy's pack and send each day. You can pre order any of the magnifying mirrors on the site and you will be then guaranteed to receive your order within a day or so once they land in the warehouse.
Giving a gift like a magnifying mirror will show that you really are thoughtful and caring about the receiver of your special gift.
Remember to keep smiling and just do the best you can each day.

Hi Everyone Its Deb here again with and update on our magnifying mirrors.
Our full and new range of wall mounted lighted magnifying mirrors will land November 30 this year in time for Christmas. Onboard we have the wall mounted LED88C 8X LED lighted, the chrome wall mounted HL85 5x Direct wire model and sister 3x model to name a few. Within 2 weeks we'll place a pre order details on the site so you can have your goods sent automatically on arrival.
We will land the PS110 Lighted travel mirror in the next few weeks leaving you with a full range of models to choose from for Christmas. I always love a launch of a new model and the new Jerdon JS811W which has become available for the first time here in Australia is in a weeks' time.
It is also timely to warn you when looking for a mirror online. There are many traps and it pays to call and ask advice. It's the reason we have our phone number displayed on the top of the front page so you can talk to someone who knows the products well. Our forte is our range and we spend a lot of time looking for practical and unique magnifying mirrors for every occasion. From home to travelling or just a handbag model they all unique and available here in Australia. Just cruising through the listings under magnifying mirrors online has mostly American listings. Even the eBay ad which has a .com.au signifying Australia has all American mirrors and most of them say not available in Australia.
Received a call from another victim of Amazon during the week with the buyer calling to say she had one of our Jerdon mirrors and it wasn't working. It turned out she purchased through Amazon which send out only American 110 volt voltage mirrors. The plug was incorrect so she couldn't plug it in but she used a travel converter so she could plug in in with the result it blew up and caught fire. The reason being it was American 110 volt wiring and by using the converter to be able to plug it in and with Australia 240volt power the mirror caught fire. The seller won't say anything or tell you anything if the mirror is incorrect for you. It is just another automated sale well it looked cheap that's why I bought it!!! We can't warn you enough please ask the question is it a 240volt powered mirror?
Be aware Amazon do a lot of advertising and now promote they can deliver to Australia however a great deal of their products are not set up for Australian 240 volt power. If you can't pick up the phone and ask a question or email and don't get a reply then try somewhere else. It's your best protection.
Moving along we notice a number of manufacturers in China have closed down giving an insight into the industry. We were advised not to worry they will start up again under another name somewhere else. During the month we found a new model magnifying mirror that possibly could have been a great seller here in Australia. Dealing with the manufacture we know why they are closing down. This manufacture was not prepared to make or send us samples to evaluate and the minimum order quantity was 40,000 units. After much discussion we walked way which we guess is what others are doing. It's just not worth outlaying that kind of money to see if it will sell. Just a sign of the times we guess.
I'll come back to your shortly with details as the stock lands.
Remember keep smiling.
