Battery Operated Magnifying Mirrors

Posted by Debra on 7 June 2017

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.

Magnifying Mirrors Phone Queries

Posted by Debra on 5 April 2017

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.

Update on Magnifying Mirror Stock Arriving

Posted by Debra on 6 October 2016

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 andthe 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.

Deb

Magnifying Mirror Buying Issues

Posted by Debbie on 30 June 2016

Hi everyone something a little different today about magnifying mirrors from our Phone support staff. They reveal some of the feedback when talking with our customers these last few months and well worth relating here in this post today.


The one comment that shows up is "gee you're expensive" when we look at the other online shops.
It becomes apparent very quickly after talking through with the caller about what they looked at, they have missed some vital considerations. Things like will the lighted magnifying mirror even work in this country? Is it in stock? Who do I call if I have a problem? How good is the quality? How long does it take before I receive it?

Generally we remind them the price for our magnifying mirrors is all inclusive meaning the product, packing posting/shipping and GST with nothing extra to pay. As the conversation goes along there are some vital points being missed.
Many people don't realise they are on an American site so prices are in US dollars. Worse still if they want to purchase a Lighted mirror there is a plethora of American and Chinese sites that sell only mirrors made with 110 volt wiring. MHB lighted mirrors have all been made especially for Australia who has 240 volts of power coming through the power point. With that many people never check that the mirror is 240 volt and some do buy the cheaper 110 volt model and use a converter and wonder why the mirror burns out or catches fire. Twice the amount of power going through any electrical device always leads to a disaster.

Sites like eBay and Fishpond are notorious for selling incorrect electrical models for Australia. Both have warnings but still allow them to be listed and sold with many sellers generally uncontactable over the phone. Price is certainly not everything however it is a very strong lure.

My Health and Beauty has a collection magnifying mirror models sourced and specified from the best manufactures all in the one location and we actually hold the stock in a warehouse. If you saw a particular model in our online shop when you were browsing and it no longer appears then we are out of stock and it will reappear when goods are back in the warehouse ready for dispatch. Unlike many online stores that do leave their stock online and allow the transaction to go through will take your money and then send an email saying it's out of stock but it  will be in soon. This type of transaction is an inconvenience and a disappointment to you.

The irony of all of this how many of those online stores display a phone number where you can pick up the phone and ask a question immediately with someone who sources, tests and trial every model. Even if you can find a number to ring you likely get a person on the other end that has no idea. With My Health and Beauty our phone people can handle every enquiry. Things like advice on what magnification may work for a person, anything about any model from a dimension to its color. Perhaps there is a problem, not able to use the website to buy, spare part needed and much more. 
Our strongest quality is being as fast as we can to get the order out. We believe when you buy you should have the goods in your hand as quick as possible. Hence if we receive and order before 1.30pm then goods get express posted on the same day as purchase. 
I hope thats helpful information for you and most importantly it goes for many purchases online not just magnifying mirrors.
Tax time oh joy remember just keep smiling

Until next time Deb

Best Lighted Compact Magnifying Mirror.

Posted by Debbie on 27 May 2016

 At last the best lighted compact magnifying mirror is back in stock. When we originally started out with these we thought they would only work best for the professional people who travel between appointments and need to look their best before going into the boardroom. It seems there are many who do want to use something better than the tiny compacts you see around they have found the LEDT01 to be the perfect companion.
All compact magnifying mirrors have their own unique uses and the first thing that comes to mind is you really need at least two magnifying makeup mirrors. One that stays in the bathroom and one that can go with you either when you're travelling or just a daily use model in your purse. When out travelling, shopping or racing from meeting to meeting a lighted makeup mirror is indispensable.

This the lightest and most compact of our range is theLEDT01 . It is just the right size to fit in your handbag and excellent for everyday touchups and can get by as 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.

Many like something that's bigger than the small compacts available to use and fortunately Zadro has come to the rescue with the LEDT01 lighted makeup mirror. 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 Zadro lighted compact comes very close.
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.  Of course this type of magnifying mirror may not suit everybody as some want a bigger size mirror, less magnification, or don't need the lighting. Take the time to have a look through the rest of the range and you may find something that really is the best for you.
TheUlt110 is very popularas it's just that little bit bigger and folds flat, still has a light and duel mirrors. In the non-lighted range theMC310 and the bigger brother the MC449 also may be better for you.
Hope you enjoyed this update and if you have been waiting for this model then I'm glad I was able to give you the good news.
Until next time Keep Smiling.
Debra :)
